Extending the mobile-broadband-provider-info database


I am working on GRPS provisioning plugin for oFono open source telephony stack. This plugin should make it possible for oFono to automatically configure GPRS contexts based on information from the provider database. There's an idea to use the mobile-broadband-provider-info package as the provider database.

Is this the correct list to discuss the issue?

In order to distinguish in between different kind of access point types of the same operator, there's a need to add a few tags, so the access point type (wap/mms/prepaid) could be reliably detected.

Will adding the additional tags/tag specifiers bring any incompatibility problems for the software that already uses the database?

I am not an expert on XML, which would be the preferred way to add the tag?

<apn value="apn1" type="wap">

<apn value="apn1">

So the type would be the enumeration of values (internet|prepaid|wap|mms). Perhaps, there's no need to mark access points as "internet" (since the majority of them are "internet" anyway), just extending wap, mms, predaid with the proper tag would be sufficient. What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
