> We have spent far too much time arguing about this, and I am happy we have a conclusion. A big thank you to the chairs for calling making this call. I strongly agree that given the dynamics of the home networking market, there needs to be one, and only one, routing protocol. I don't see anything else working in the real world.
> Personally, I happen to think that babel is the best choice, not so much because of the protocol itself but because of the current availability of solid, freely-licensed, small-footprint implementations. But IS-IS would have been fine as well; so would OSPF, if there had been an implementation, and even HNCP fallback would have fine. At the end of the day it doesn't really matter which one we choose, as long as we choose one.

Well said, +1 to all of the above
