Thanks Philipp, I didn't know Freifunk Berlin had its own firmware
generation utility!  Looking at it, it seems a bit heavyweight (it builds
OpenWrt from scratch instead of using the ImageBuilder) but it's probably
necessary if you want to patch some packages.

I have added this information to the relevant documentation:


Now there are 10 different projects that we could use for our community
network, https://xkcd.com/927/ is already starting to apply :)
