Hi all,

To clarify, the reason for integrating the OpenWrt patches into the LEDE 
tree is that in the future, at an agreed point in time for both parties, 
the OpenWrt trunk would be rebased from the LEDE tree, giving the 
community a "clean" trunk going forward.

(Hopefully at that time, the "two parties" will be one.)

Thanks Hauke for managing these talks and meetings.
