Summary0003050: alternative hub flag for autoconnects
Descriptionat my network i use autoconnects to relink the network if a link fails.
but with two hubs the ircd wants to connect both at the same time... now hubs get trouble with a leaf which is connected to twice hubs.

i can prevent that with connection rules "if hub1 is connected do not allow link to hub2" but for all that in big networks with many users there are many problems.
ircd is synching and gets disconnected because of the crule.

so i think it could be a nice feature to select the prio one hub which is connected first and if connection fails the ircd tries the alternate hub.

or a wait flag so the link is activated after one connfreq?

How about assigning class with maxclient=1 to both hub connection?

at this point there is no connection established i dont think this can help...
server activates all autoconnect links on startup or delink
maxclients is only useful if i want to restrict the max links but this can be done with a crule.

Since 3.2.9 it's safe to quickly reconnect, even to multiple targets.

(note: this has been broken by nenolod in 3.4....yeah.. fantastic)
