This page describes how to get WISP firmware and software via a source code repository. Questions? - ransford maintains this page.
The WISP firmware is under active development. Bleeding-edge development happens on the community repository. If all you want is the most stable release of the WISP firmware, the WISPFirmware page offers direct-download links.
Intel Research has transferred responsibility for the WISP firmware to the user community. As of September 2010, all new development on the WISP firmware happens on the community repository hosted at GitHub. The "right way" to hack on the WISP firmware, whether to fix bugs or to add features, is to fork the community repository corresponding to the WISP hardware you have (e.g. the dlwisp41 repository for the DL WISP 4.1), develop locally, and submit a pull request when you're done. (If you don't understand these terms, you can find a quick introduction to Git at GitHub's help page.)
To do the same thing with a command line client, open a terminal window, change to the directory you'd like to put the code in, and type:
//////svn export https://svn.seattle.intel-research.net/repos/wisp_challenge//////
If you need read-write access and already have a ssh account with Intel Research Seattle, you can use the same commands above.
You'd like to contribute code to the contribs section, but don't have an ssh account with Intel Research Seattle? Great!! Just send a note to - pollyp and she'll get you set up.
