The series has been sent as discussed on irc. I don't recall any more 
required - also based on checking the CSV, thanks for prepping that.

The RFC patches/PRs are:

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/433
I'd like to add genimage support to OpenWrt. With this package one can 
create arbitrary image either for internal flash or SD/USB storage devices.
As this package is basically applicable to any target should I enable it 
in tools/Makefile tools-y target?

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/409
Add nconfig toplevel target to utilize ncurses ui configuration utility 
as found on kernel's buildsystem.

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/533
tools: add package autoconf-archive

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/464
Add full control of network configuration to a user script #464

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/312
ar71xx: add support for Zsun WiFi SD Card Reader

lantiq: td-w8980: fix failsafe mode via ethernet.

packages: lzo: Update LZO Makefile to repair dead Main URL

 - https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/539
Add TL-WA901v5 support

 - #1-4 would require discussion if they're needed at all, they look as 
"nice to have".
 - #5 needs some work as it has some dirty hacks. This can be taken care 
on the summit's second day - I recall someone going there has a ZSun reader
 - #6 - I haven't seen traces of this in LEDE, but I leave it to the 
lantiq experts to opinion on
 - #7 was due to an outage if I recall correctly, again, it's optional
 - #8 - needs some further changes around creating the -factory image
