Hi,

Just a few things to take into consideration for 19.XX release

Oversized ethernet frames on ipq806x causes crashes
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2026

Overall ethernet performance on ipq806x isn't great,
perhaps add a note in the release about it

f2fs wonkyness on several (?) platforms?
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1575 (scroll down)
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1714

USB is half-broken on several devices (ath79)
https://forum.openwrt.org/t/ath79-target-status/18614/27 (and below)

TL-WDR4900 is currently broken
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1773

Zyxel P-2812HNU-F is currently broken
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2124

Mesh is broken using ath10k-ct?
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2123

openssl: backport devcrypto changes from master
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1046426/

Make sure NFS v3, v4 and client/server works on release
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2105

Possible performance regressions regarding mt76
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2090

USB seems to be broken on WRT1900AC v1
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=2091

syscall getrandom() hangs on Turris Omnia
https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=1979

Worth considering:

fstools: Disable lazy init for ext4 overlay
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1847

ipset: size optimizations
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1852

iputils: update to 20151218 (might be worth jumping to official repo?)
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1804

package/libs/libevent: Update to 2.1.9-beta (get 2.1.9 in before 
branching)
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1853

dropbear: bump to 2018.76 (just switch to master/head branch in worst 
case?)
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/915

Import the following and make default for ARC:
toolchain: Update to GCC 8.3.0
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1846
toolchain/binutils: Add binutils 2.32
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1803

ath79: make TP-Link revision naming consistent
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1047544/

Might be risky?

octeon: Generate writable and ext4 images for ERL
https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1813

(octeon:) Allow sysupgrade restore on ER
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1008841/

(octeon:) Evaluate board names in alphabetical order
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1008838/

There are quite many PRs and patches for adding devices which probably 
have to wait

Best regards,
Daniel
