-===== Joint future ​=====+===== Announcing the OpenWrt/​LEDE merge =====
  
-As of January 2018, both the OpenWrt and LEDE projects ​[[start#​announcing_the_openwrtlede_merge|agreed to re-merge]] back under the OpenWrt name.+As of January 2018, both the OpenWrt and LEDE projects agreed to re-merge back under the OpenWrt name.
  
-The merged ​project ​will use the code base of the former LEDE project. ​OpenWrt specific patches not present in the LEDE repository but meeting LEDEs code quality requirements got integrated into the new tree. The source code will be hosted at [[https://​git.openwrt.org/​|git.openwrt.org]] with a continuously synchronized mirror hosted at [[https://​github.com/​openwrt/​openwrt|Github]]. The original ​OpenWrt ​codebase has been [[https://​github.com/​openwrt/​archive|archived on Github]] for future reference.+The new, unified OpenWrt ​project ​is governed under the [[:​rules|rules established by the former LEDE project]]Active members of both the former ​LEDE and OpenWrt projects contribute to the unified ​OpenWrt.
  
-===== Name =====+==== Joint future ​====
  
-{{:wiki:logo_owrt.png|The OpenWrt logo}} | The name //OpenWrt// stems from the beginning of the open wireless router movements, starting with the [[https://​wiki.openwrt.org/​about/​history|first White Russian ​releases]] for WRT54G routers, marking the start of future wireless router firmware development.| +{{:media:merge.svg.png |}} LEDE's fork and subsequent re-merge into OpenWrt ​did not alter the overall technical direction taken by the unified projectOpenWrt will continue to work on improving stability and release maintenance while aiming for frequent minor releases to address critical bugs and security issues like LEDE did with the 17.01 series ​and its multiple point releases until now.
-| {{:​wiki:​logo_lede.png|The LEDE logo}} | The name //LEDE// is an abbreviation for Linux Embedded Development Environment,​ a reference ​to its flexibility ​and embedded buildroot origins, making it a solid choice for embedded Linux applications far beyond ​the wireless router ​and network appliance realm.|+
  
-===== Project Meetings =====+Old pre-15.05 OpenWrt CC releases are not supported by the merged project anymore, leaving them without any future security or bug fixes. The OpenWrt CC 15.05 release series did receive a limited amount of security and bug fixes, but due to its lacking integration in the release automation, no further binary image releases were made.
  
-We attempt to have regular IRC meetings to discuss and decide ​project ​matters.+The merged ​project ​uses the code base of the former LEDE project. OpenWrt specific patches not present in the LEDE repository but meeting LEDEs code quality requirements got integrated into the new tree while the source code has been moved to [[https://​git.openwrt.org/​|git.openwrt.org]] with a continuously synchronized mirror hosted at [[https://​github.com/​openwrt/​openwrt|Github]]. The original OpenWrt codebase has been [[https://​github.com/​openwrt/​archive|archived on Github]] for future reference.
  
-==== Next Meeting ====+The remerged OpenWrt project is legally represented by the [[https://​www.spi-inc.org/​|Software in the Public Interest (SPI)]] - an US 501<​nowiki>​(c)(3)</​nowiki>​ non-profit organization which is [[https://​www.spi-inc.org/​projects/​openwrt/​|managing our OpenWrt trademark]],​ handling our donations and helping us with legal problems.
  
-The next meeting date is yet to be decided.+Infrastructure formerly available under the lede-project.org domain has been mostly moved to corresponding openwrt.org subdomains and redirects were put in place when appropriate.
