Spec Reference:


We should have some jenkins-ci job that
  • packages our wireshark as packages in OBS as part of the feeds
  • possibly even re-bases our non-mainline patches before each build

This is particularly important for the AMR voice playback, as wireshark has refused to include this upstream. We can also include any other not-yet-mainline code that we have at osmocom, like osmux statistics, Jacob's EGPRS patch, Ericsson RSL support, ...

It would probably be best if both the package as well as the file names are modified to not conflict with the distribution-standard wireshark package that mostly everyone has installed. Let's hope this is not too hard to do. Alternatively we could install into something like an /opt/osmocom PREFIX. A bit ugly, but then it would avoid having to patch the wireshark source?

Please coordinate with Daniel on this.

Daniel, can you add some details/links here on the patches which should be included in here? Let's first make a list and then we can continue with it.

If anyone else wants any related patch to be included, please share it here.

AMR decode support:

Other patches from daniel/osmux should be already merged in upstream.

There seem to be other branches in our wireshark repo at

laforge/gsup    Dissector for the Osmocom GSUP Protocol    Harald Welte    3 months
laforge/pending    Add dissector for OsmoTRX protocol    Harald Welte    2 weeks
laforge/qcdiag    qcdiag_log: Implement RRC dissection    Harald Welte    15 months
laforge/trx    Add dissector for OsmoTRX protocol    Harald Welte    5 weeks

What's the status of these branches? Are they merged upstream? Should I copy all those patches into the same branch and use the branch as source to build our own wireshark?

Assigning to laforge as the branches are from him.
