conqmetad is a meta server for Conquest. A meta server listens for game availablity announcements from other conquestd servers scattered about, and makes this list available to conquest clients that use the -m option. This makes it easy for people to find prospective games.
The de-facto Conquest Meta server runs at conquest.radscan.com.
The meta server listens on port UDP port 1700 for announcements from conquestd servers. TCP connections to port 1700 cause conqmetad to dump the current server list and their associated data in an easily parsable text format, one server per line, and disconnect.
