I note that the default AQM is rather lame now. I am working on a
replacement,and gui for it, but won't be done for at least a week.

I have no idea right now.

We need to take a major pass through the onboard doc
(I'd like better css on that too), but I have assiduously
resisted making any big decisions regarding the final
core feature set until now, and I don't want to
think about doc until that settles down.

I only have two 'features' left to add - and that's dhcp6-pd support
and better ipv6 support overall. I'd like to implement rfc4193
support,AND get that working on gw.home.lan as well.

Then there is the gui and aqm work...

Sorry, I had to rebase that build (again) and hadn't
checked the new package database into the build tree.

fprobe or fprobe-ulog? I'll build both but only want
to include one.

I am not planning a truly working new build or package set
for a week or so, either, sorrry.

I will start writing /etc/openwrt-version in the next builds.

I note that the bql series is just that (and it took me 23 attempts to
eventually get bql working), and it isn't tied
to a rc, or plan, at all. It was my way of dismissing the
externalities and fixing bufferbloat more than anything else.

While I was doing that, nearly all the fixes required to meet
rc7's original feature plan arrived...
