This is just FYI that RIPE announced to do some buffer overflow
tests (*eg*) tomorrow. For unknown reasons they did not include 
Quagga in the list of pretested routers so I hope there will be
no problems :-)



---------------------- quoted --------------------
As part of our AS-set stuffing experiments (announced, including links
to in-depth information, in [1]), we will be announcing unusually large
AS-sets tomorrow, Thursday 16 June.

The prefixes involved will be and, both
orignating in AS12654. The AS-sets will consist of AS12654 repeated n
times, thus the paths will look like 12654 {12654, 12654, ..., 12654}.
No other AS numbers will be used. The values of n we will use are 25,
50, 75 and 100.
