I am changing the qAX and qAC constructs in javAPRSSrvr to better represent the "port of entry" for APRS-IS. The current implementation has qAC and qAX (verified and nonverified) constructs having the same callsign-SSID as the "from" station in the packet which is the same as the client's login. The change will be to use the server's callsign-SSID for the q construct instead. Note this is the server's callsign-SSID, not the aprsD IGate callsign-SSID. For instance:
Today (stations directly connected to FIRST, for instance):
I believe this will help us identify where people are connected to yet it leaves the q algorithm in full force. It does not require a mass server conversion; the current q algorithm works either way, this way just gives us more info.
If any authors see an issue with this, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
