ok, no problem.

Could it be possible to send merged series with both your current work
and Stefan Lendl work ?

I'm a bit lost in the mailing.

I'll try to update external ipam code with your current patches.
I'm currently doing tests with netbox, it seem than ip ranges is
supported now, and finding free ip in ranges too.
I'll look at phpipam.
