A recent conversation amongst moderators/developers/admins/senior folks about how to help people with older devices has led to the proposed policy: Device Support and Suitability for OpenWrt
We propose to label various kinds of devices with regard to their ease-of-installation of the current version of OpenWrt. The three labels would be:
Recommended - straightforward for newcomers to get OpenWrt going
Limited - OpenWrt works, but certain hardware/software limitations may limit options
Difficult - OpenWrt can be made to work, but needs a lot of knowledge to get it going.
The full proposal is at: https://openwrt.org/playground/richb/support-suitability
There is a sample "Recommended for OpenWrt" Table of Hardware at: https://openwrt.org/playground/richb/tohrecommended
Let's continue the discussion here. (And remember: Rule #12...)
