let me just take the opportunity: any idea when ExaBGP 3.5 would ship, that would allow to drop the bagpipe-bgp branch which has its own fork of exabgp, and switch to the new branch that depends on everything we added/cleaned'up in exabgp 3.5

ExaBGP 3.5.0 will not happen, ExaBGP 4.0.0 will. I spent the last month rewritting fully the configuration parser - this is not completed but well under way and has reached feature parity with 3.4. Next to do is a cleanup of the NLRI ( with INET, LABEL, MPLS - currently LABEL does not exists ), of the FSM (which is wrong on master). Then I have 4/5 features request that need to go in 4.0. So … the short answer is surely at the end of the summer.
Do you want me to create a bagpipe-bgp branch ? You could use it with git-submodule to do what you need now ?

that seems like a good idea
you would branch out the bagpipe-bgp branch out of current master
and we would have to work to keep bagpipe-bgp in sync with future master
then eventually have bagpipe-bgp switch to master when 4.0 is ready
?

Do you want me to first do the NLRI cleanup ?
As I assume it would affect your code.

it looks like a good idea

Then you have a stable point to release from.

in fact I was trying to have bagpipe-bgp work with current exabgp master and I just found a few issue

Ok - I will focus on this first, then create the branch for you.

Oh, sorry to hear that, anything I can help you with ?
Thanks a lot !
I am sorry I am not going to Prague. I was planning to, but I just injured myself ( ankle sprain ) and I think it is better for me to not travel !
But if you need anything just drop me a line !

Currently ExaBGP has MPLS and MPLSVPN as two different classes.
I see no need for the separation, do you have any objection for them to be collapsed ?
