I think Fabian meant the already existing directory ``sys/net/routing_layer/``.
Though they might not be used by anything else but the routing layer, I think it is most clearly to put the function prototypes into sys/net/include/etx.h and the implementations into sys/net/routing_layer/etx/. In the optimal case all the other headers in there would be used by their respective upper or layer protocols, too, and experience showed that moving the implementation around later-on (e.g. to rename routing_layer to forwarding_layer ;-)) is heavily simplified, when public headers are not in those directories.

Best regards,

A subfolder to organize the common used functions sounds good to me. Especially when they are probably used across distinct routing protocols .
Im not sure about the name routing_layer, it sounds a little bit too general.
I would propose e.g. forwarding_layer.

Good morning,

for restructuring RPL I was wondering where to put common Routing Layer functions like ETX. My first and obvious impression was to move them in the subfolder routing_layer, but it is also possible to put such functions into the include folder of net directly. Any suggestions?

Have a nice day
