I would like if we take the same services as OpenWrt did in the past
from SPI (Software in the Public Interest) + the DNS / Domain service as
mentioned in this mail.

* SPI holds the OpenWrt trademark for the OpenWrt project
* SPI accepts donations for the OpenWrt project (incl. tax reduction)
* SPI manages the OpenWrt "bank" account
* SPI gave legal advice for the trademark and will help on other topics

OpenWrt had 6040.14 USD in the account at SPI by 1.1.2017, 1621.13 USD
were donated to OpenWrt in the year 2016:

In my opinion SPI did a good job and did everything we asked them for
and did not try to take over the project or something like this. ;-)

We need a new representation at the SPI and should vote about it.
