[OpenWrt-Devel] BGP-LS support in OPENWRT

It's been great to see how some new protocols like HomeNet[1] get supported
in latest Trunk of OpenWRT and I was wondering if there was any plan or
possibility to do the same for BGP-LS and PCEP?

Path Computation Element Protocol (PCEP) is used for communicating Label
Switched Paths (LSPs) between a Path Computation Client (PCC) and a Path
Computation Element (PCE). [2]

Link State (BGP-LS) extension has been added to BGP to share network link
state and traffic engineering topologies with external entities, such as
OpenDaylight based SDN controllers. [3]

It would be great to get OpenWRT to support these protocols so we can use
it as the foundation for our test labs and training programs as a vendor
neutral solution.

How might that be possible?

Is anyone interested in working on this? Has anyone even looked at it? How
much effort might be required?

I'm new to this community - would the routing packages for OpenWRT
eventually end up here: https://github.com/openwrt-routing/packages

Many thanks!
