In the last poll the majority decides for a re-merge. [0] To bring this 
a little bit further I would like to see this announcement on the front page which would inform users that the code repository 
moved to the LEDE project. This is based on the topics, I think we all 
agreed on, but if I did something wrong, or you think we decided somehow 
differently please correct me. My intention is to get users, that are 
not following the project very closely informed about the situation.

contribute code to the LEDE project please follow the LEDE submitting
