OpenWrt is a Linux distribution for wireless routers. Instead of trying to cram every possible feature into one firmware, it provides only a minimal firmware with support for add-on packages. For users, this means the ability to custom-tune features, removing unwanted packages to make room for other packages. For developers, it means being able to focus on packages without having to test and release an entire firmware.
