Thanks for the update Hauke and those who took notes. A merger would
be a nice Christmas present, or at least something to look forward to
in the New Year! ;)

From a PR perspective, I strongly suggest keeping the term OpenWrt as
part of the branding of the project moving forward. It can just be
cosmetic (web site, etc.) but the name has so much history, and
positive connotation, that you don't want to lose that brand attached
to the development moving forward.

happy holidays all!
