True, bgpd.pl is not being maintained. I would be happy pick up development
again and fix some known bugs if someone could provide me with a full BGP
feed from a router. This router should not be in a production network and
should be able to deal with lots of BGP notifications, session
re-establishments and other testing activities.
Ideally, I would like BGP sessions set up with all the different BGP
implementations ofcourse but one would already be nice to start with.
