what we do is to do a thorough code review plus some testing in
private testbeds. furthermore we run the code at least for 2-3 days
in one of the larger networks (vienna & berlin).

thats IMO good, but not good enough ...

what i want to do in 0.5.6 or 0.5.7 is to fix olsr_switch() such
that small virtual meshes can be brought up on a single host.
i want to add some sort of automated unit testing aka 'make test', which
forks a couple of olsrds and then black box functionality is verified.
e.g. are all expected neighbors/routes etc. there., how longs does it 
take to bring up neighbors, are there stable routes and much more.

its fairly simple for people used to CVS (just replace cvs with hg).
here is a good starting page plus relevant links.
