Hi Dvir,

sounds great.

If you haven't already, please have a look at the (short) guidelines at

I'll give it a try soon hopefully.

One other thing I've noticed is that binary encoding and decoding of
network byte ordered values is implemented in a non optimal way, and looks
like it can be replaced with the standard go way of doing it, which might
not have been available at the time the original support had been written.
