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.
Given that it appears to be the current approach (move docs from wiki
to git), I guess it makes sense to do that eventually. I'm just not
sure when, or that it all should be done at once (moving board docs
to git might be enough for 1.7). In either case, there're more
important things to do for Networking docs for now, e.g.
https://jira.zephyrproject.org/browse/ZEP-1623 ,
https://jira.zephyrproject.org/browse/ZEP-1495 .

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
