you may have noticed "LuCI the Lua Configuration Interface" in the official

stuff, a statistics collector with rrdtool-graphs, OLSR and QoS support are
We are always looking for people to maintain, improve or create web interface
components. Maybe you would like to implement a webinterface page for your

If you want to contribute feel free to contact us. Any help whether it may be
development, designing, translation or documentation stuff is highly
