Performing updates on routers is quite different from full Linux distribution. It's not sustainable to do release upgrade via a packet manager. Instead it's usually required to re-flash the system image. Depending on the installed packages an image rebuild may be to complex for regular users. A more convenient way is needed.

This project will implement an "image as a service" server side which provides custom build images depending on installed packages. A notification in the web interface will notify about the new release. After image creation a one-click installation is offered within the web interface.

The server side implementation will use established tools like LEDE's ImageBuilder to provide an generic approach for image creating. In this way the entire OpenWrt/LEDE community including several community-mesh firmware projects will benefit from that new update routine.
