Usage of an openwrt mail address suggests that the person using that address has another position in the project than those that use mail addresses not within the openwrt.org domain, which does not go well with LEDE rules.

John remerge proposal v3 states clearly:
> - mail addresses may under no conditions be used for any personal business, consultancy, applying for jobs, ... purposes
Did you purposely omit the next bullet item that says?
- any mail sent from an openwrt.org account needs to adhere the
trademark policy and should only be used for FOSS purposes
> As a mail address in a SOB is a personal address, is meant to be that, using an openwrt address in a SOB goes directly against the agreed on rules, and certainly against the spirit of the LEDE rules that have proven to be successful in making the project getting traction and commitment.
LEDE project rule #10 does only stipulate that new email addresses will
not be given away on the premises of and privacy and equality:
10. The project will not offer email accounts under its project domain
for privacy and equality reasons.
That sentence is written with the future tense, and therefore does not
try to impose or specify anything with respect to emails given before
(so in the past).
Therefore, my reading of the LEDE project rules and the remerge proposal
makes me so inclined as to think that Imre is not in direct violation of
the LEDE project rules regarding the use of an @openwrt.org email
contributor for FOSS perspectives.
Quite frankly, if the goal is just to give Zoltan and Imre a hard time
and nitpick on everything possible just to delay (purposely or not) the
remerge, then you are doing a great job at it, but this goes against

As for using another email address, I won't use my personal one for this as I don't use this for that, simply as that. This is fully following what the merge agreement that has been voted for and got accepted defined.
