Host AP / hostapd / wpa_supplicant - anonymous CVS/GIT access

Project source code and related files are maintained in a version control system. The first version up to and including 0.5.x were maintained in a CVS repository. Starting from 0.6.x, repositories moved to using GIT. In addition, Host AP driver is now maintained with the rest of the Linux kernel tree (which is also using GIT).


Using git protocol: git://

Using HTTP (if git protocol is firewalled):

(e.g., to get a clone of the repository you can use git with "git clone git://").

WWW interface (gitweb) to the repository:


Anonymous read-only CVS access to the Host AP driver, hostapd, and wpa_supplicant CVS repository is available using CVS pserver:

export CVSROOT=""

cvs login

Password is empty, so just hit enter when prompted for a password.

After you have logged in once, you can checkout the source:

cvs checkout hostap

If you want to compress the stream to save bandwidth, you can add -z3 option to the command (cvs -z3 checkout hostap).

Also other CVS commands like update and log can be used.
