Known issues:

  * Sysupgrade from ar71xx to ath79 and vice versa is not officially
    supported, a full manual reinstall is recommended to switch targets
    for devices supported by both ar71xx and ath79
  * Images for some device became too big to support a persistent
    overlay, causing such models to lose configuration after a reboot.
    If you  experience this problem, please report the affected device
    and consider downgrading to OpenWrt 18.06 or using the Image Builder
    to pack a smaller custom image
  * Some optional GUI packages crash with an error about missing
    "cbi.lua", install the "luci-compat"  package to fix these
  * Any outstanding issues reported at https://bugs.openwrt.org/
