I am currently looking at using wpa_supplicant to configure networks
on my linux pc.

While trying to configure it, I discovered that the
ctrl_interface_group option has been marked (DEPRECATED) in

But the README that comes with wpa_supplicant makes no mention that
ctrl_interface_group has been deprecated.  Instead, it recommends
using ctrl_interface_group to allow wpa_cli to run as a normal user

Is ctrl_interface_group to be removed in the future from
wpa_supplicant?  If yes, what is the recommended option to use?
