On the info for the version of the patch: my error, must have overlooked the included version info, it is indeed included.
About the use of openwrt email addresses in the SOB:
This has been discussed before, and the arguments against using an openwrt mail address as a personal address haven't vanished.
The address in the SOB is meant to identify a contributor, most likely a natural person, not some entity of the openwrt project. Usage of an openwrt mail address suggests that the person using that address has another position in the project than those that use mail addresses not within the openwrt.org domain, which does not go well with LEDE rules.
IIRC, during discussions on the remerge, the following compromis was reached: usage of personal openwrt addresses wasn't ruled out completely, but only in passive sense, as a means to keep receiving mail on the address and active usage for personal business is not allowed. John remerge proposal v3 states clearly:
- mail addresses may under no conditions be used for any personal business, consultancy, applying for jobs, ... purposes
As a mail address in a SOB is a personal address, is meant to be that, using an openwrt address in a SOB goes directly against the agreed on rules, and certainly against the spirit of the LEDE rules that have proven to be successful in making the project getting traction and commitment.
Please take this opinion of an outsider seriously, regards,

As for using another email address, I won't use my personal one for this as I don't use this for that, simply as that. This is fully following what the merge agreement that has been voted for and got accepted defined.
