OVERALL RATING: 1 (weak accept)
The paper is well structured and the topic is very interesting. The proposed system has been tested in a real scenario and I see it is open as a Google code project.
The motivation for the experiments in section V is not clear to me. The paper focus is supposed to be about the WMN, but then the measurements are about the routing protocol o generic packet RTT, with no apparent relation to the WMN. Only al the end, with Table II there’s some kind of evaluation. The relation between the experiments and the proposed WMN, and why the experiments are deemed useful then, should be cleared up at the experiment description. If they are not related, then the paper goals should be better explained, since they are no just related with presenting a WMN.
Some minor comments:
Node numbers in Figure 3 are a bit small. Maybe a larger font could be used to easily identify nodes (specially #3, the Afrimesh server node)
I understand that Afrimesh was created to cater to the TelcoVillage scenario, but it would be interesting to know whether it can be applied to other scenarios.
Maybe the authors could reference the Afrimesh Google code project in the paper.

The paper deals with protocols and management for wireless networks.
———————– REVIEW 3 ———————
OVERALL RATING: 2 (accept)
The paper discusses and evaluates the performance of a wireless mesh network management system called Afrimesh. The paper first reviews similar systems such as MeshMan, MeshMon, DAMON, etc. and then describes in detail the architecture of the Afrimesh system in terms of the underlying routing protocol, called BATMAN, the three layers comprising the system, and the corresponding interface. The software components at mobile nodes and the system admin node are also listed and briefly described. The second half of the paper describes two simple experiments (unloaded and loaded scenarios) to characterize the performance of the management system and the underlying protocols in terms of signaling overhead, delay of data, throughput and jitter.
The paper is easy to read and follow. However it is long and in most section be can condensed further. For example, the discussion section includes a table (Table II) which is followed considerable text explaining the terms used in the table. The authors need to be more concise and brief in many places.
There are minor typos in the paper and places where acronyms are used before spelling out the terms like OLSR and SSH. The word “co- ordinates” should not include a space, etc. Figures 6 and 7 need to be made readable.
