start by checking out trunk

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/collab-maint/deb-maint/olsrd/

You will see that I was working on 0.6.0 in May... and then stopped as some of 
the patches didnt apply anymore and I had no time to resolve this. I have 
commited this now as it is and unresolved, see debian/changelog for details.

And Henning (and everybody) please comment on the patches in
http://svn.debian.org/viewsvn/collab-maint/deb-maint/olsrd/trunk/debian/patches/ - 
I'd love to have zero ;-)

Then use svn-buildpackage to build from there. It will pick up the tarball 
from ./tarballs/

cd trunk

You should use a Debian sid chroot for developing. Whether you use Debian or 
Ubuntu, its equally easy to create one:

debootstrap sid ./path/to/some/dir http://ftp.de.debian.org
chroot ./path/to/some/dir
# then inside the chroot
apt-get install build-essentials debhelper quilt bison flex svn-buildpackage
svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/collab-maint/deb-maint/olsrd/
cd trunk
# voila

Once you made it so far, we can continue from there :-) Good luck & have fun! 

Is there an IRC channel you hang out at?

Last but not least: collab-maint is a repository on alioth.debian.org 
where "anybody", not only Debian developers, can easily get an account. Just 
follow the instructions to get one. Then apply to become a collab-maint 
project member and then you can commit. I'd be happy to support you applying.
