Hi,

As many already acknowledged this proposal I would like to call for an
official vote among the LEDE committers till 14.6.2017 on this proposal.
I counted the following replays to the proposal already as an
acknowledgment:
Steven, Matthias, Stijn, Hauke, Florian, Daniel, Hans, John, Rafał,
Felix, Alexander, Piotr
If you till ack it, you do not have to do it again.

I haven't seen any NACK among the LEDE committers till now.

If this will get accepted by the LEDE committers and also the OpenWrt
core developers accept it, I would like the OpenWrt core developers
start with migrating the openwrt.org domain to the SPI as a first step.
