I took a quick glance at the code to see if could figure out what
you were talking about.   Especialy as I could not find any documents
on the packet format.  The code does not transmit packets.  All of the
packet transmit functions are stubs.  I can think of no greater failure
for a networking protocol.

Since the code does nothing except have buzz-word compliant descriptions
that are content free I respectfully suggest you make it mostly work
before foisting it on people.

My advice for a future day when you have code that can transmit packets
is to start small.  Have patches that do things and do them clearly.
Once you have a minimal version of working code merged then work your
way up.

For just sharing your code you might simply want to have your own tree
that you publish publicly.
