> I've been running rancid 2.3.6 for a good number of years.. I am finally migrating the config over to another newer OS and decided I should probably start w/ the latest 3.1 version of RANCID..  Though, I have a few "hacks" added in over the years.. one of which is for Cisco wireless controllers (WLC) using ciscowlc, wlclogin, and wlcrancid..
> I'm curious what the appropriate method is for implementing that into the newer rancid 3.1's /etc/rancid.types.conf style for add-ons?

yes, see the dell entry as an example.

> Also, I'd love to understand why WLC support isn't in RANCID natively by now..

i have no way to test it and no clear indication that its stable, which
potentially leaves me supporting something I can not easily debug.

> I have a few other "mods" for things I need to reimplement too.. but this should give me a better understanding of how to do it.  My other major mod is for apclogin and apcrancid, which uses FTP to collect config.ini's from APC UPS's and PDU's..
