I'm curious about the "WiFi Aware" initiative by the WiFi Alliance.
Does LEDE and/or Linux support this protocol? I know gSupplicant is potentially
the way such things are supposed to work, at least according to its supporters.
The general NAN (Neighborhood-Aware-Networking) concept makes a lot of sense at
one level, but as an Internet guy, it troubles me that they decided to split
from the Internet and go a balkanized direction. To me, the neighborhood is
interesting only as part of a larger Internet.
It also troubles me that WiFi Aware is a "certification program" rather than a
real standard, and has serious problems with supporting Internet. But there will be
devices that require it.
