For the lede-17.01 release we did not use a release name, I do not

example 17.01 DESIGNATED DRIVER, like it was done for OpenWrt releases.

change it. This would affect the naming of the current master repository
and the next release.

are funny I think they are not needed.

I started this vote base on this request from Zoltan:
