hostap iapp and dhcp question

If I have a set of wireless access points running hostap and I enable
802.11f with iapp_interface=eth0. I want these to appear to be a seamless
single network to the users.
Should I be running one dhcp server (or one server with a relay on each
access point) to handle all the access points, or should I have one per access
In either case is there any communication between hostap and dhcpd
to hand over address allocation?
In the case of a single dhcp server how is routing handled, other than
bridging the whole network?
Also the docs make reference to an ESS (Extended Service Set). How do I
set membership of such a set, is it as simple as using the same ESSID?
