From: Faidon Liambotis <faidon@cube.gr> Subject: hostapd: Debian package patches & manpages I'm about to upload a new revision of my hostapd package and I'm sending you the modifications I did to your package, for the purpose of including it to the Debian distribution. I'm also sending you the manpages for hostapd and hostapd_cli I made. Please send me any corrections/suggestions you have, so I can include them in my package. I'm also hoping that a newer version of hostapd will include these changes. The patches are minor, even though I think 03_usage_cleanup is an intrusive modification considering that I'm just packaging the software. My excuse is that I did it in the context of documenting hostapd (that is, after I created the manpages). (jkm: with minor changes to line lengths and indentation)
