sounds ok for me ;-)
I am using Netgear ex6120 and ex6130 Adapters. they seem to be
the same but the 30er has in addition an power Outlet/throughput.
How is this backport fork working?
You have to find the commit in master that adds your device (git log master | grep
Then you can git cherrypick or simply copy the code of the commit to the 19.x branch.
Depending on the device / drivers etc, this may not work (as more changes have to be
backported, kernel version needed, etc). But you can try ;)

So it should only be corrected for the next
release I think.
I think that the policy should be that we always add support to
openwrt/master (snapshots) in a backward compatible way when
it is not possible then we ask ourselves what to
do depending on the
I mean, how much it will brake in each case.
After the 20.09 release I think we can drop OpenWrt 18.x support and
on 19.x and snapshot but prioritizing 19.x over
rationale is to deliver the a stable experience).
Andy, what device do you need that it is only in master? Some can be
easily backported to 19.x in a local fork of openwrt. I know this
pros/cons but relying in snapshots is also very
unstable and time
