It needs to be understand that neither the OSU server nor the client
code is really ready for production use (i.e., useful for developer
testing, but that's about it without significant additional effort) and
that's also behind there being not much documentation available for them
or high priority in addressing that. The server setup used to be pretty
complex, but it is at least somewhat easier now with newer Apache
version being included in distros.

For client, the command line usage documentation should give a pretty
clear idea on how it can be used as long as you are familiar with the
Hotspot 2.0 Rel 2 specification and how the OSU protocol works. And if
you are not, you'll have hard time getting this doing anything useful..

I'm not completely sure what you are referring to with the "hs20 test
file". If that is referring to the hwsim tests, then no, those test
cases do not yet exercise any of the hs20/{client,server} functionality.
