Description Beniamino Galvani 2020-05-06 06:27:15 UTC
We provide a nm_lldp_neighbor_get_attr_type() function that returns
the variant type of each LLDP attribute. However, since the type for
each attribute is fixed, the type should be clearly documented in
libnm so that users know how to parse the attribute. Also, some
attributes are a{sv} dictionaries and the documentation should state
which members are present.
