Ath79 nand on 19.07 and question about snapshot packages


I don't see any support for ath79 nand in 19.07, they are still built under ar71. Is this normal? Where can I follow the planning for the first release of ath79 nand?

Right now I am building from sources for my particular device (NBG6716). Is it true that I have to download and install packages right away, otherwise dependencies can be broken (see this for example : LuCI - dependency error - libiwinfo20200105)? If yes, is it possible to circumvent that? I may need to install more packages over time and reflashing is not a good option for me. I was thinking about a way to maybe download all packages in advance and host them localy. Maybe there is documentation for that already somewhere?

Thanks for your help, as always! :smiley:

This answers the first question :

Doesn't this mean 19.07.01 is already with ath9k?
