   - #openwrt-announce - new releases, security, ...

   David Woodhouse and ask him to help with the migration. We will send out
   automated subscriptions with a letter that we have yet to draft

   There shall be 3 channels. All other channels that existed before/after
   the reboot shall be shutdown
   - #openwrt
