Tested the release candidate on octeon/erlite, most things work nicely
so far.

Upgrading from 15.05 was tricky though because octeon_board_name
is broken in 15.05 and i needed to manually fix it so sysupgrade would
work (octeon_board_name() returned 'cavium,octeon-3860' instead of
'erlite' on 15.05)
Imho we should make a note on each board which successfully booted the
release and make a note whether it was flashed using sysupgrade or
factory method and if any hacks or special work-arounds were needed,
ie stuff like the octeon_board_name problem mentioned above...

Package problems:


dnsmasq REFUSED queries no matter from which interface they came.
I replaced it with unbound and odhcpd which solved the problem.

The same configuration worked without any problem for almost a year
with more than 100 days uptime on 15.05.


openvpn-mbedtls didn't like my vpn server for some reason:
The certificate is signed with an unacceptable hash.

openvpn-openssl worked without any problems.

Should I file bugs for those openvpn-mbedtls and dnsmasq problems?
In case of openvpn-mbedtls I'm not sure whether it is a bug or a
