I must say, this is quite odd.

Yes, it is :-)
But not everyone is an IRC or XMPP user
My only issue, it does not work well with Fluid.app :-(

I have a question, how do you access the incoming RIB of a peer via the API? I'm looking at the RIB class (https://github.com/Exa-Networks/exabgp/tree/master/lib/exabgp/rib) which maintains a cache for incoming, is this accessible, and if I dump it, will it contain all current routes being announced to me by a peer?

Hi - I created this room today - so brand shinny new
@mellowdrifter currently the Adj-RIB-In is not being stored
It can easily be changed, but up to now there was little reason for it.
I only maintain an Adj-RIB-Out to know what to resend on BGP session flap.
I always assumed people caring about the inbound route would use a DB to save them using the API
and sorry for the delay for my answer - I was having a drink at Costa as I am on holidays this week :smile:
