Here my (official) opinion point by point:

> *) rules
> - owrt will adopt the lede rules and voting system

> *) branding
> - the owrt side sees no option of using the lede brand
> - a (minor) majority voted for openwrt as a name over lede whilst most 
> people said they did not care
> - as the last vote had a 100% ACK for a remerge using the owrt brand 
> is the only feasible option

> *) domain
> - transfer owner ship to SPI for openwrt.org and lede-project.org
> - add them to the pool of urls at digital ocean
> - post remerge build a setup where we have several DNS servers in 
> various locations
> - point git.openwrt.org at the lede git server
> - point bugs.openwrt.org to the lede flyspray instance
> - keep both wikis and forums as is (we should decide post remerge how 
> to proceed to avoid these issues blocking the progress)
> - update the lede domain entries for build/download/rsync/... servers 
> so that the openwrt domain also points at them

> *) SPI
> - nominate a new liaison team (imre and john offer to do this, if 
> anyone else is interested let us know)
> - inform SPI of the new liaisons, voters and project rules
> - this should be done early in the remerge process s.t. the domains 
> can be handed over

> *) github
> - start pushing to the openwrt organisation
> - cleanup the list of owners in the openwrt organisation
> - obsolete all issues on the openwrt organisation and close the issue 
> tracker
> - go through the open openwrt and lede PRs, pickup whats useful and 
> close the rest, asking people to repost (things wont be rebasable 
> anyhow)
> - close the lede PR tracker
> - obsolete the lede github org after a grace period of 3-6 months

> *) landing page
> - add a letter of intent / notice to both current landing pages 
> announcing the remerge
> - update the lede landing page to represent the openwrt name
> - update the landing page to have the same look & feel as the current 
> openwrt landing page
> - point openwrt.org at the lede landing page
> - try to find some design guru that will transform the owrt theme to 
> one appropriate to this century

> *) trac
> - trac is already readonly, keep content so that search engines can 
> still find the it
> - edit the trac html templates, adding a note pointing at the 
> bug.openwrt.org instance

> *) IRC
> - add back cloaking
> - give people channel ownership/admin rights

> *) email accounts
> - currently there are around ~20 active openwrt.org mail accounts (the 
> 3 owrt devs would like to keep theirs active)
> - turn all the webmaster@, hostmaster@, ... accounts into aliases that 
> anyone with voting rights can be subscribed to
> - ask those people that are no longer active to voluntarily give up 
> their accounts
> - mail addresses may under no conditions be used for any personal 
> business, consultancy, applying for jobs, ... purposes
> - any mail sent from an openwrt.org account needs to adhere the 
> trademark policy and should only be used for FOSS purposes

> *) wiki / forum
> - TBD
> - asking in either forum/wiki will get a biased vote so keep them both 
> around
> - start a separate discussion regarding these post remerge
I prefer the OPENWRT forum
> *) LF
> - find out what doubts folks have about LF
> - find out benefits - we would have their hosting and sponsorship ?!
> - start a separate discussion regarding these post remerge
ACK for the hosting and sponsorship

> *) git trees
> - rebrand the lede tree to openwrt
> - work out what has happened inside the openwrt tree since the reboot 
> and pick up the useful bits (zoltan has done some prior work on this
> already)
ACK merge (no rebrand to be coherent with the first point)

> *) mailing list
> - ask david to add the openwrt-adm and openwrt lists
> - send out invitation mails to the new list
> - setup redirect/auto-reply for the existing lists

> *) trademark policy
> - review/ack imres trademark policy (https://openwrt.org/trademark)

> *) timeline
> - vote / agree on the proposal within the next week
> - work on the action items in the 4 weeks after that
