Is there a particular reason that this architecture must be submitted
to OpenWrt under the terms GPL v3+? I would prefer that OpenWrt stick
to GPL v2 in order to maintain better compatibility with the Linux
kernel (kernel.org). The kernel is primarily GPL v2 licensed (or
something FreeBSD-like which is more, not less, permissive). The
OpenWrt distro has only a few GPL v3 package exceptions, such as

The OpenWrt core team are doing a good job building a better
industry-community relationship for OpenWrt, which I think can be a
win-win for overall project improvement (brings in more developer
resources, much like kernel development depends on industry
developers). Introducing more GPL v3 packages makes it problematic for
certain industry partners to be able to fully collaborate.
