We (BIRD developers) would like to know which major features you miss in
BIRD and would like to be implemented. If you have some opinions on that
issue, please write suggested features together with several sentences about
why you think that is the feature we should implement or why you need that.
This inquiry is oriented on long-term, major features, but if you have some
minor requests, you are also welcome.

Our current short-term plan is to fix RIP (and multipath for RIP) and
implement Route Origin Authorization / RPKI drafts for BGP.

Some examples:

OSPF opaque LSAs
.. or some other OSPF extensions
BGP confederations
BGP extended communities
.. or some other BGP extensions
MRT routing table dumps
Some monitoring/statistics integration (SNMP, collectd ...) Route
aggregation engine Static routes depedent on ping reachability BFD
(Bidirectional Forwarding Detection) IS-IS Some ad-hoc wireless routing like
OSPF MANET or OLSR Multicast routing?

.. or perhaps no new big features, just some more work to already
implemented areas?

BTW, from these examples, my personal preference is currently on BFD.
