In my community network we are changing the way we generate OpenWrt
firmware images, and I took this opportunity to look at the existing
methods based on the OpenWrt ImageBuilder and/or SDK.

In the end, I found way more projects than I thought would exist!

I documented everything I found here: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/imagebuilder_frontends

Please add any project that I may have missed, and feel free to fix or add more
details if you don't like the description of your project.

As a side-note, does anybody use uci-defaults scripts? https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-developer/uci-defaults
It seems like the best way to implement customization without having to
update file templates with each OpenWrt release, but during my quick
overview tour I haven't noticed any project using this method.
