I agree. Despite the domain name being handed over it still looks like
the openwrt.org infrastructure is the hands of a single person, which
was the precise cause for the fork...
What about handing this AS over to the SPI as well? Or at least have
several admin-c registered?

(I'm aware that this might not be the best moment to discuss this, we
all could have thought about that a bit earlier...)
