The 802.11s task force has gotten down to work. The task force is trying to come up with a mesh networking spec to finally define how to do it. Motorola has already taken the preliminary draft and stated that their software already supports it. As with most standards task forces, this one looks to have some battles brewing between proprietary technologies that want their standard to be the one accepted. In the end they will likely come up with something, but it should be an interesting battle.
