LLMNR support patch for Avahi 0.6.31

Reported by: jmaggard Owned by: lennart
Milestone: Component: avahi-core
Keywords: llmnr Cc:


I'm far from an Avahi expert, but I (any many others, I'm sure) would like to see LLMNR support come to Avahi some time soon, especially with IPv6 and Windows 7 constantly getting broader distribution. I located Sunil Ghai's avahi-llmnr tree on github, and noticed (1) it doesn't compile, and (2) it's based on the 3-year-old Avahi 0.6.23. I'm also wondering if review and and integration of the code was delayed by issue (3) -- the formatting is a bit poor, and inconsistent with the rest of Avahi.

So I've gone ahead and spent some time rectifying the three issues I just mentioned, with the hope that this helps attract upstream attention again. I didn't review the code, except where required to either compile or run avahi-daemon successfully. However, it does work for me with the attached mega-patch, but I have done admittedly very little testing. The patch should apply cleanly against upstream avahi 0.6.30. I hope this helps to move things along.
