We just had our developer meeting and want to do branch the next release 
soon. I just want to coordinate the release planning here, the full 
meeting notes will be published later.

We want to merge the mac80211 update to version 5.10 found here:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/mac80211-5.10
Felix uses this since some time now and found no problems, I am also not 
aware of any problems. Kernel 5.10 is an LTS kernel which makes security 
maintenance easier for us.
I plan to merge this at the weekend.

We would also like to get this busybox update in:
It also works well and should make it easier to maintain busybox in our 
stable release.
I plan to merge this at the weekend.

It would be nice to get DSA support in LuCI. We have this pull request:
This still has problems with Wireless bridge-vlan.
If this is not ready in time for the branching we will backport it later.

Rafał is asking about the general LuCI status here:

For more details, we have this release goals page:

lynxis and ynezz will prepare the build bot setup to build snapshots of 
the 21.02 release branch and the releases (candidates).

If everything will look good, we will branch 21.02 sometime next week.

If the update of mac80ß211 or busybox breaks something, we will fix it 
or revert the update this should not delay the branching.

I would like to have a 21.02-rc1 in 2 or 3 weeks after the branching, so 
we get more test coverage.

Do we still have some important bugs we should really fix in master or 
anything which could be blocking for the release?
Any objections to this plan?
