thanks for the update and your monetary support.

Regarding the CE/FCC certification, maybe we can raise some funds from the users interested in this, i.e. nearly all EU users. How much is it?

Regarding the firmware deadline, 10 days may be a bit short for the wifi rework and new setup wizard to get done and mature enough for rollout. The web UI now
checks for all common mistakes users made in their initial setup (I hope I got all of them…). I'll see if I can add a "quick setup" page of the main
configuration options.

We should replace the serial number process by the factory defaults (wifi AP "OVMS / OVMSinit", no shell password).
