Hi, All

We are using AP mode of wpa_supplicant in our embed device.(Actually we are
using connman, while connman uses wpa_supplicant).

As I know wpa_supplicant only implements a subset of hostapd. For example,
we want the feature of mac address based authentication, which only exists
in hostapd, and missing in wpa_supplicant.

Is there any plan that wpa_supplicant support such AP features?

Or even will hostapd and wpa_supplicant be merged?And so that we can expect
connman/wpa_supplicant delivery advanced AP features.
