Dear FreeBSD Community,

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce one of the projects from 
our accepted project proposals!

Rui Paulo will be implementing the forthcoming IEEE 802.11s wireless 
mesh standard for FreeBSD. Wireless mesh networks are expected to become 
widespread as routers and network appliances deploy them, allowing 
wireless networks to be built and extended dynamically. Support for the 
standard will allow FreeBSD consumers to take advantage of this new 

"As well as end-users, FreeBSD-based product vendors will benefit from 
access to mesh networking technology in building future versions of 
their products," said Robert Watson, president of the FreeBSD Foundation.

"I am thrilled to be bringing such an exciting and technically advanced 
feature to the FreeBSD operating system," said FreeBSD Developer Rui 
Paulo.  The project will be completed by July 2009.
