Progress on the New-N Paradigm in last 30 days:

   Doubling of New-N "S" type digis to 206
  1200 of 1400 total digis support WIDEn-N
    228 of  R, W or T digis dont support WIDEn-N

We need to focus on  the old "R", "W" and "T" digis.
They are the only ones that do not support
the New-N Paradigm.  But they can easily.  THe "T"
digis  can be configured to support the New-N 
paradigm by just remote-sysop changes and so 
there should be no excuse in not re-configuring 
these to support New-N.

The old R and W digis can upgrade to UIDIGI ROMS.

Also, although an old "N" digi can support WIDEn-N,
most of them are operating inefficeintly, are using
old WIDE paths for their beacons, and have HID
on and have bad beacon timings.  These need to
be re-configured to "S" digis to show that these
inefficiencies have been removed.

Here are the numbers compared to 30 days ago:

New-N-Paradigm Digis:
  S digis 206 was (113)   New-N's that support SSn-N 
  L digis   80 was   (98)   New-N's (should become S's)
  F digis    6 was    (  0)  KPC3 old ver 8.2 FLOOD only
  P digis  13 was    (10)   New-N   Paccomms (need work here)
  1 digis  22 was    (13)   New-N   one-hop digis

Old style digis:
  N  620 was  (727)   Old WIDEn-N's that flood
  T  112 was  (123)   obsolete PacComm Trace digis
  U  150 was  (195)   UIDIGI ROMS needing updating
  D    88 was    (90)   DIGI_NED software needing updating
  R    97 was    (97)   obsolete RELAY only digis
  W  16 was     (29)   obsolete WIDE-only digis


So progress is being made, especially now that all
the reported anomolies have been found in some of
the digipeater code out there... and workarounds
have been developed.
