running a community based wifi network based on OpenWRT I'm thinking
about using lede. Do you have any suggestions on this?
For doing so, I see the need for a more less stable base (stable as in:
few bugs, few refactorings / changes over time) Looking at lede at
moment I seed nightly builds and agile moving trunk, only.
It's essential, that tutorials on wifi node setups are usable over time,
that provided settings are applicable for a reasonable and foreseeable
amount of time and that users are able to install additional packages
(even kernel modules such as batman-adv) weeks / months after a release.
>From my impression this cannot be done using nightly builds based trunk
When lede was founded earlier this year, the goals were :
"- Building a great embedded Linux distribution with focus on stability
- Having regular, predictable release cycles coupled with community
provided device testing feedback.
- Establishing transparent decision processes with broad community
participation and public meetings."
Is this still up to date or has lede's focus changed so far?
Please don't get me wrong - I really do appreciate your work and your
doing a very got in job in developing an embedded Linux distribution -
but this not the point.
I'm in the need for a predictable release cycle and a transparent
decision process on upcoming release dates.
If lede's mission has changed so far, please let me know - if not,
please let me know how to get information on upcoming release plans.
For those of you without hope, we have rooms with color TV,
cable and air conditioning
