I will shift both releases (18.06.6 and 19.07.0 final) to Monday 6.
January to get some security fixes in, please get your changes in till
Saturday so we have some testing before.

We plan to update libubox to current master in 19.07 and 18.06 branch.
In 18.06 we will revert this commit to prevent an ABI change:

After the new libubox is in, we will also backport this commit to 19.07
and 18.06:
I am not sure if we should update ubus in 19.07 to master.

Baptiste requests this change for 18.06:
Could someone please have a look.

The open problems in ath10k-ct / hostapd will probably not be fixed
before the final release, but they should get fixed in subsequent
releases like 19.06.1.
