Finally took notice of the post install instructions for hostapd. I have never done what is said below. Hostapd sets master mode, sets ssid, sets channel and and if configured adds wlan0 to br0. If not adding wlan0 to a bridge then would want the the config_wlan0 line.

Using hostapd with openrc since maybe Dec last year and not seeing the "need" bit in these instructions. What am I missing?

Code:

 * If you are running openRC you need to follow this instructions:
 * In order to use hostapd you need to set up your wireless card
 * for master mode in /etc/conf.d/net and then start
 * /etc/init.d/hostapd.
 *
 * Example configuration:
 *
 * config_wlan0=( "192.168.1.1/24" )
 * channel_wlan0="6"
 * essid_wlan0="test"
 * mode_wlan0="master"

I've been using hostapd for a few years... I've never noticed that message and my conf.d/net doesn't have any wifi config in it. No problems here.
