my mutt doesn't really like your HTML, anway, there are already running
projects of wireless mesh networks, 

http://www.locustworld.com

this is not hostap-based.

http://www.sown.org.uk

this is hostap based.

both use WDS links and some particular addressing scheme to have mesh
model working. both do not use WPA/802.1X, since there is no support for WPA over
WDS still. if you're fine with that, they just "work" out of the box, if
you want WPA/802.1X WPA over WDS has been a topic in a couple of threads, 

http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2005-August/011156.html

this is to cleanup code to have wpa supplicant state machine linked to
hostapd, and have a supplicant work with hostapd server, and this

http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2005-July/010913.html

is somebody trying to patch existent code to have WPA over WDS, I don't
know to what extent. 

I'm interested in the subject of WPA over WDS, so discussion is welcome.

ciao,
leonardo.
