I just want to say first of all that I'm really impressed so far with the OpenWRT platform in general. I've been using DD-WRT with my Netgear R6400v1 for about two years now, and I've grown really tired of the disorganized mess in that whole ecosystem - the docs, the super old school forum, lack of build tools, SVN reliance, and also the general lack of coordination, my trust has dwindled in it all.
Sadly my R6400 is not compatible with OpenWRT so I'd like to get some recommendations as I plan on transitioning (also the closed source binaries make me uneasy). Any recommendations to get started? Another question I have, is there build/code signing in the OpenWRT platform? This is something severely lacking in DD-WRT.
