#1832 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add a checkbox to the "Create Reseed File" function to include this router's identity and IP, for testnets and maybe other cases

Description

From http://127.0.0.1:7657/configreseed :

"Create Reseed File

Create a new reseed zip file you may share for others to reseed manually. This file will never contain your own router's identity or IP."

As per a discussion on #i2p-dev, people wishing to create their own I2P test networks have some trouble bootstrapping their network, requiring hack-ish manual NetDB editing for the first two routers to learn about each other. I think having a proper NetDB export that can be the original bootstrap for a network of two routers, by including the lone first router's information, would be useful. A simple checkbox that says "include this router's identity and IP address? (not recommended)" would be an excellent provision for this.

Isn't it a lot simpler just to copy over the router info files?

Seems like the best way to help test network people is to improve our documentation on it. I'm hoping psi can contribute, since he did it recently. There's a few posts on zzz.i2p also, but we need to move it to the website.

I'll leave this ticket open for now but I'm skeptical that this feature would be worth the trouble.
