-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. 
 + 
 +==== Joint future ==== 
 + 
 +{{:​media:​merge.svg.png |}} LEDE's fork and subsequent re-merge into OpenWrt did not alter the overall technical direction taken by the unified project. OpenWrt ​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. 
 + 
 +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. 
 + 
 +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
 + 
 +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. 
 + 
 +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.
