Hi John,
probably that's fair, as I was not the most active and during last 6-8
months was barely active (publicly) at all partially because was too
frustrated about the split, partially because was too busy with day
job and partially because didn't know where to commit patches (since
there are talks about the merge but it would be easier for me to
commit into OpenWRT tree and I didn't want to complicate the merge).

So I leave the decision on whether to count me or not to you and not
going to argue about that.
