I installed OpenWRT on my Linksys WRT3200ACS and love it.
I have experience with Debian where I always use the "stable" version to ensure my system keeps running and does not break easily.
For OpenWRT, I realize that I get package updates every few days. Most of them look like "dailys" rather than stable versions. Example:
luci-app-opkg git-20.287.57033-3d52019-1 » git-20.313.59566-7460e9d-1
What is the best approach to keep an OpenWRT router current, yet minimizing the likelihood of breaking something? (On a daily basis, it's my internet router and not playground, so a critical part to get my work done).
Specifically regarding security updates I'd like to have a current system but
How do you manage updates on your router?
PS: My opkg/distfeeds.conf is the original one:
