I would like to take care about the repo merge.
I will go trough the OpenWrt git repository and look for stuff that is
not yet in LEDE. If I think it looks good I will merge it into the LEDE
code base, otherwise I will provide a list with all the commits I think
we should discuss.

Is that OK with all of you?

For actually moving the repository I would need some help, but I can
coordinate that.

How will take care of merging the websites?
Imre wanted a different website design, but I am unable to do such
stuff. I do not care about the design, but I like that it is a wiki.
