This was a replay to the " downloads.openwrt.org NOT accessible!!!"
thread and your mail is totally unrelated to that. When you want to
start a new thread next time just send a new mail to the list and do not
replay to an older mail. If you want to answer to this mail because wen
you should use the replay button.

As this is a separate package you should create a pull request on
github. Here is some documentation on how to do this:

OpenWrt CC is currently in maintenance only mode and we only allow
security fixes and bugfixes, but no new features. You can still send a
pull request to integrate our package into the Openwrt package feed for
trunk which will be used for the next release.
