Ahhh... This is exactly the kind of advice I was looking for...

Are these bugs important? What problems would someone see? Or would those problems mostly affect people who're skilled in the project? As stated above, my goal is to have a set of clear instructions that "just work".

Plus, I realize I have a third goal:

3) That people have a good experience the first time they try Homenet. (This makes using trunk/DD questionable - maybe the hnetd in trunk works great, but if they install a build of DD on a bad day, it'll contribute to a bad experience, even though it's not hnetd's "fault".)

So my question for the considered wisdom of this group:

Is stock CC "good enough"? Or would CC+development version of hnetd be the best combination? If the latter, I will work toward those instructions. (And I may take Tore up on his offer to push a feed of the newer packages to Github...)

I still need to clear some other projects off my desk, but would hope to start on this in the next week or so.

> trunk build of hnetd is somewhat better in that regard but I have not gotten around to fixing some of the reported issues there either. It _used_ to work in my home, until I gave up on my homerouter-NG project (Linksys WRT1900AC running combination of CC+trunk) and returned to my old home platform w/o hnetd and running BB (and just ohybridproxy).

I agree. We are all pinning great hopes on this equipment.

Thanks, all.
