For any code to land in a stable branch (here 0.94) it needs to go into
the master branch first. The 0.94 branch is frozen, so should only see
bug fixes now. There might be exceptions but there should be good
reasons for that, in 99.9% of the cases we shouldn't.

Interesting, so the Australian deployment is using enterprise WPA/WPA2
in their deployment? I thought that would be in use mostly in the
corporate world. For background info maybe you can illustrate the usage
a bit with this real world example.
