Hi all,

I'm developing gr-gsm project which uses GNU Radio framework in order to
build infrastructure for receiving GSM data.

Recently we've added libosmocore as a dependency in order to use it's
implementation of ciphering algorithms.

I would like to use more of the code that was already implemented thanks
to your work, but I've found some parts that I would expect to be in
libosmocore are not in there but in osmocom-bb. One of the examples is
interpretation of system information messages that is in

Is it possible to move parts that are usable for projects outside of
osmocom into libsomocore? If yes - how can I proceed with that? I'm
aware that it is not simple process as it involves also removing these
parts from osmocom-bb and maybe also editing them in order to make them
independent of osmocom-bb.

Best Regards,
Piotr Krysik
