Hello!

I just cloned the Zephyr repository and saw that the 6LoWPAN stack
was the same as the one I am used to - e,g, the Contiki 6LoWPAN
stack. How are you planning to develop it further? Are you going to
sync it from Contiki or would you like Contiki developers to post
pull-requests to fixes also to Zephyr?
The plan is to sync it from Contiki when applicable. If you look the
code, we needed to make lot of changes to uIP stack in order to make it
work in Zephyr. The biggest change is that the IP stack is now re-
entrant e.g., there is no global buffer for network packets. Because of
this it is not so simple to just pull changes from Contiki as manual
work needs to be done anyway.


Anyway - congratulations - it looks like an exciting project and I
will be happy contribute to it!
