This project will be launched with a sprint on Feb 25-27, 2011.

Sprint 1

Goal - Reliably bridge two different and separate wireless networks without using existing internet infrastructure.

Design goals 1) There should be a webserver on each network. 2) Nodes in either network should be able to reach both webservers. 3) Nodes on one network should be able to talk to nodes on the other network and vice versa. 4) Networks should have at least 3-5 nodes each.

Tentative schedule is as follows:

Friday - 8:00pm Pizza and planning (any particular request should email me off list). (COMPLETE!) Saturday - 9:00am Start showing up (IN PROGRESS!) Saturday - 10:00am Divide into groups and start the sprint. Sunday - 10:00am Start showing up. Sunday - 11:00am Finish the sprint! Sunday - Evening Debriefing (I'll be taking extensive notes to update the wiki).

Notes: BATMAN Babel Babel Setup BATMAN-Advanced Setup

Plans! We're gonna have two teams each will implement a mesh network using some existing mesh protocol. One team will be working with BATMAN and the other with BABEL. Each network will use at least one openwrt device the rest will be laptops and netbooks.
