@jow has posted a note on the lede-dev mailing list, requesting feedback on a branch to create a "lede-17.01" branch that would ultimately become the first stable release.
You can follow the discussion at: http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/lede-dev/2017-January/005241.html
I assume this is happening today? When it does happen, will it be officially announced or published on the git page?
Ooooooh, things are happening:
I'm barely able to build from source as it is. How do I start building against the stable 17.01?
I think I figured it out, didn't work on my first attempt as I didn't run a 'git pull' in awhile:
git checkout lede-17.01
If you are following the documentation from wiki and is still having trouble, bring it up to the Documentation thread so they can get feedback about documentation
Yes, I think I will as my solution didn't appear to work.
