OpenWRT

Contribution Date

It's somewhat startling to realize OpenWRT wasn't nominated long ago ...

From http://openwrt.org/:

- OpenWrt is described as a Linux distribution for embedded devices.

- https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/SupportDonate - includes credit card payment means. No obvious PayPal mechanism sticks out.
