I see that if there is just one listener, then it basically becomes

at 2 sites there are 1 listener each.
does this mean that all 10 sites will get the broadcast? or that just
the 2 sites that have listeners will get the broadcast?
Currently, if 2 (or more) batman-adv nodes have 1 listener each (for
the same multicast group) then the packet will be flooded. Meaning all
nodes in the mesh will receive it.
I currently have two more patches for batman-adv open for further
testing to allow not just multicast-to-unicast conversion to a
single destination, but a multicast-to-multi-unicast conversion, too.
They are currently burried in here:
If you are interested and brave enough to try them then let me
know how that goes for you :-).
