end of the road for oxnas?

It looks like OpenWrt is dropping oxnas after the upstream community has discontinued support. Is this the end of the road for oxnas?

We are at 5.4.x here. So it will be tracked to 5.4 LTS until Dec, 2025. Yes, it will be the end of the road for OXNAS on Dec 2025.

Makes me sad for both of my Pogoplug Pro's as they have run Pi-hole and Time Machine backups so well for the past 12 or so years.

I remember buying a bricked Shuttle KD20 NAS years ago and finding the forum when I was trying to unbrick it. It started my 'hobby' of buying cheap electronic devices on ebay and taking them apart trying to understand how they work.

We are also facing another EOL issue with a possible removal of armel architecture in Debian 13. Basically, if that happens we can continue upgrading Kirkwood kernel, but all Kirkwood boxes are stuck in Debian 12 :( Hopefully another distro will still support armel.

What has kept armel in Debian 12 is the rPi, thanks rPI :) I hope that specific rPI board will continue to ship for a longer time.

@Koen so well said! I have developed the same hobby and thanks to this website was able to vastly expand my skills.
