Hi Jeff,

On 2, I guess they should be configured in nfd.conf. Take a look at the .conf, after "strategy_choice" section, there is:

  ; Declare network region names
  ; These are used for mobility support.  An Interest carrying a Link object is
  ; assumed to have reached the producer region if any delegation name in the
  ; Link object is a prefix of any region name.
    ; /example/region1
    ; /example/region2

I have no idea about 3rd and am eager to know. It must have something connection with ndns.

Even after looking at relevant sections in the NFD developer's guide, we are blocked on finishing the NDNFit forwarding hint design by not understanding the specific definition of what  a "region" is, and how they should be confirmed in practice...

For example, see section 4.2 of the NFD developer's guide.

1) What is a region?
2) How should they be configured at each NFD?
3) [And, who is expected to configure them, and when?]
