I think that is a good point. The active OpenWrt-Team seems
to consist of 3-4 people. Has somebody of them considered to work
fulltime for the project? This way the always growing Patchwork (~100
open patches) and Ticketsystem (>3000 open Tickets) would benefit.

It should be easy possible to get funding from all the companies which
work with OpenWrt. Is this in option?
