Well, it helps to have a buildable cerowrt of your own... OR, you can
just bump up the version numbers
in the makefiles like I just did, and do a new build of the
"stable"-ish cerowrt (3.10.36-6), push it out, which I just
did, and ask folk to make sure their /etc/opkg.conf points to the
right 3.10.36-6 repo, and to then do a

opkg update
opkg upgrade luci-app-sqm sqm-scripts

which should pick up and install those two packages for further testing.

I do look forward to the day where the kernel settles down enough to be able to
incrementally improve/update/fix various packages and libraries only,
or we come up with a way to make incremental updates work more often.


in other news, making a little headway on the ubnt edgerouter:

thx. turned out getting a hotel in SJDS on easter was too hard so I
didn't jump on a plane this weekend. I went biking in SF instead. Fell
and either bruised or broke a rib. Not sure if I'm going anywhere
after that.

It was nice to not think about the internet for a while anyway.
