You realize that's very shaky grounds to make assertments about "legacy" and "deprecation", one way or another. As of now, no official decision has been made, and we should not announce our assumptions as such.
I see that jwoods reply is from 17 hours ago. As I am in the Pacific Daylight Savings time zone (Pacific/Los Angeles) and as the expiration on the link Mr Woods posted is enabled for 72 ours, even if the link is posted across the International Date Line, it should not have expired as of 7:41AM, (2:41PM UTC). And yet, when I clicked the link, a new tab opened, and I received this message:
The specified password activation key was incorrect or has expired. Please re-request a new password. If that fails, contact the forum administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will try that approach and obtain credentials. Thanks.
OpenWRT creates much confusion when the user must have one set of credentials for the OpenWRT.org versus another set for the OpenWRT Forum. I now have two accounts, one at the Forum the other I have no idea what to do to get rid of it. I have so little knowledge of all networking, I would never edit the OpenWRT pages. That is what the credentials are for.
not to argue, but when I said 72 hours, I had only read that. Your response was way more than puzzling, so, again, today, trying to get help and having my credentials fail again, I made a screenprint so we can both see what-is-what here.
