I'd like to propose we start with merging both projects' IRC channels,
and for the time being change the topics with a message to urge anyone
to install the latest stable LEDE release. Anyone who is currently
running OpenWrt is running an old version, and is vulnerable to a
truckload of vulnerabilities, both in the Linux kernel and in various
packages included in our standard images. I think it is our duty to
inform both projects' users. If we don't do this, people might as well
stick to running stock firmware.

Since both projects have different IRC channels, we need to decide on a
mapping. Here's my suggestion:

#lede-dev -> #openwrt-devel
#lede-adm -> #openwrt-adm (new)

As we aim to be as open as possible, I suggest we drop the
#openwrt-hackers channel, and redirect that to #openwrt-adm as well.
Finally, with the objective of joining, I suggest
to have #openwrt-security, limited to people with commit access.

I would like to move forward with this ASAP, ideally close to the time
the 17.01.3 binaries have finished building.

Best regards,
