hostap.git is the official source of current 0.6.x releases.
hostap-full.git is a repository that includes full history since the
beginning of the project and in addition, it includes support for WPS
which is currently not included in hostap.git.

If you need support for WPS, you will need to use hostap-full.git at
this point. If you do not need WPS, it would probably be better to use
hostap.git since that is identical with the current 0.6.x releases.
