First of all, congratulations - I'm glad to hear you were able to get
m0n0cored and the modules to run under Linux!
Now, about m0n0AP - personally, I don't plan on doing any development
or maintenance on the current version at this time. It (hopefully)
works pretty well for a first release, but the ultimate goal of
course wasn't to create only wireless AP software, but a foundation
for a future version of m0n0wall.
It's pretty obvious that with the new concept, a lot of effort would
be required to port all the current functionality of m0n0wall, and
I'm not sure whether it would be worthwhile, nor do I have the
motivation to attempt it myself. Also, feedback on m0n0AP on this
mailing list was sparse, to say the least.
There is of course still the possibility for somebody else (you? ;)
to tackle this, or for other projects to make use of m0n0core/m0n0AP
code. Perhaps a Linux-based m0n0AP would offer more in terms of
functionality and hardware support than with the current FreeBSD base
system, or maybe you can use something out of m0n0AP for Voyage Linux.
In any case, I encourage you to release the modifications/patch that
makes m0n0cored work under Linux - someone else might find it useful.
