Sorry it took me longer to count the votes. ;-)

The remerge proposal was acknowledged by the following LEDE developers:
Steven, Matthias, Stijn, Hauke, Florian, Daniel, Hans, John, Rafał,
Felix, Alexander, Piotr and Jonas (13)

In addition it was acknowledged by the following OpenWrt hackers:
Zoltan, Miken, Imre and Matteo (4)

The following people I was unable to put into one of these groups also
acknowledged it: ;-)
Koen, Vincenzo, Alexandru and Eric (4)

I counted one Not acknowledge:
Jow (1)

I used this list for the LEDE developers:

With that vote the remerge is officially approved by the LEDE developers
and also by the OpenWrt hackers.

As a first step I would like to see the openwrt.org domain being
transfered to the Software in the Public Interest, Inc (SPI) so the SPI
can take the ownership of the domain in the name of the project, like
they do for the debian.org domain name.
Imre will you take care of this please.

Imre and John volunteered to represent us at the SPI. As I haven't read
anybody having a problem with that in the mail threads, I assume that
this is ok with everyone. Imre and John can you please also work on this
topic. If anyone wants a formal vote on this or would like to have other
people representing us please speak up now.
