For anyone interested in deploying mesh nodes it's a little off-topic
but I've recently made some changes on the Freedombone project which
make deploying Batman Adv mesh nodes simple, together with supporting
Tox and ZeroNet communications over the mesh. You just dd the mesh image
to a microSD, attach Wifi dongle and boot. Unique keys get generated
automatically on first boot, so that each mesh node has a unique ID.

If you have enough hardware then in an emergency or for a festival
you could deploy one mesh node every 5 minutes from a laptop using
the dd command.

Something similar could be done for a FreedomBox mesh.
