I've been working to get olsrd to pass the Debian 'hardening-check' and

There are two way to get the packages, the Guardian Project Commotion PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:guardianproject/commotion

And the Debian experimental package:


Since olsrd runs as root, its important that it is secure and hard to
exploit.  This is especially important as people install olsrd on
their own laptops and Android phones, where all sorts of sensitive data
is stored.
