nice to see things picking up pace. do we know who this actually
involves ? it is not clear to me who is still on the openwrt team.
although they are all welcome it would be nice to actually know who this
would comprise. anyhow lets hope we work something up and make everyone
happy again. would be nice if we could word this in more of a common
task/todo list rather than demands/conditions.

some ideas that were discussed on irc and i think in one of the meetings

*) ask for the openwrt.org domain to be handed over to SPI, and hand
over the lede-project domain at the same time
*) there is the rule of no project email addresses being used to send
emails by developers, how should this be handled ?
*) ask for openwrt to donate the wiki and forum to the infrastructure pool
*) while at it we should also offer voting rights to the active feeds
