I haven't had a look at the LWIPv6 sources yet, but given Ivan's current efforts on lwIP + IPv6, it might be worth checking if we could share lwIP's core code, wouldn't it?

Given the documentation, the main difference should be additional protocols and API functions. If it's like that, it might make sense to cooperate on part of the code...

Dear LWIP designers and developers,

this is just a "call for brainstorming" message.
The meaning of this message is to discuss if two projects (LWIP and LWIPv6)
can cooperate, to which extent and which can be the common goals.
Each one of the project has pros and cons, the focus is different but we have
a lot of common ideas and code.
This was discussed recently.  My view is that the two projects have
differing goals, with lwIP primarily concerned with being lightweight
and low memory, while lwIPv6 is more about new features.  So while they
have a lot in common I think this makes them pretty fundamentally
incompatible for merger.
