A lot..

Yes.

I try to keep it always in working condition, i.e., I do test my changes
before committing; well. However, I'm usually testing only one
configuration (at the moment Linux 2.5.x and hostapd) for CVS commits
and I may miss some changes that break, e.g., Linux 2.4 compilation.
These are normally fixed as soon as someone reports them.

Yes, see http://hostap.epitest.fi/ for alternative methods of accessing
CVS tree.
