Amuza (LibreMesh contributor) told me that he experimented with TC on LibreMesh and would be happy to jump in a call with us to share what he learnt.

Also the folks at URJC in Madrid have made proposals on traffic control/QOS over the mesh. Could be worth talking to Javier and Ignacio…

Would love to be engaged in this work. Let me know if and when you do set up a meeting. TC/QoS is an area of interest for me and would love to support work on it in LibreMesh and also learn most about contributing to libremesh.
