Re: Networking-with-Qemu wiki page updated

Paul,

Thank you for the update.

Maybe it makes sense to move this to the source tree and have it as part of
the documentation alongside the samples. This way the information for older
versions will always be available. There will always be users of released
versions.

Hello,

This is just a background notice that the page
https://wiki.zephyrproject.org/view/Networking-with-Qemu , which
previously contained information for 1.6 and earlier, was updated for
the master branch status (i.e. 1.7-pre). This page is also linked from
the official docs at
https://www.zephyrproject.org/doc/samples/net/qemu_setup.html , so is
a kind of motion towards updating the docs for 1.7.

The page itself tries to provide a bit more detailed walkthru on
setting up IP networking test environment using QEMU, than the
reference Zephyr docs, and provide more hints/caveats, to make the
process easy even for Zephyr newcomers.

I also post about it at this time with the outlook that Zephyr moves
towards 1.7 freeze, and it would be really great if in 1.7 we finally
had the robustly working native IP stack. So, everyone interested is
welcome to test it using the instructions above and update
status/submit new issues at:
https://jira.zephyrproject.org/issues/?jql=project+%3D+
ZEP+AND+component+%3D+%22Networking+%2F+IP+Stack%22
