Package feed reorganization
For quite a while already we are not very satisfied with the quality
of the packages-feed. To address this, we decided to do a fresh start
on GitHub. The new feed https://github.com/openwrt/packages should be
used from now on and package maintainers are asked to move their
packages there. For the final release we will still build the old
packages feed but it will be necessary to enable it manually in the
opkg package list to be usable.

Additionally we would like to give a big thank you to all of our package
maintainers working on our various feeds.

New build servers
We would like to express our gratitude to Imagination Technology for
funding the 2 build servers that we used for the release.

Whats next ?
We aim at releasing Chaos Calmer (CC) before the end of the year. The
CC release will use 3.14 or a newer LTS kernel as baseline.

Have fun!
The OpenWrt developer team
