Thank you Jean-Philippe for your offer.  We certainly do appreciate some
new docs of what you've tested.

And do you mean to produce packages of the gateway or the auth-server? 
Both ways, it would be great if you could do so.  Here, we do our tests
mostly on the openWRT platform, so we'll make packages for the different
versions of openwrt.

Next release should be by the end of september
