Proposal, progress in merge discussion with OpenWrt

There have obviously been a lot of discussions about a merge, we see that the 
plan is to merge the OpenWRT changes into the LEDE repository, and there have 
been a couple e-mails about logistical things of merging resources.

But I don't think I've seen anything about administrative plans.

I am assuming that post-merge, the OpenWRT branding will survive (due to it 
being far better known) and the LEDE branding will fade.

But what is going to change in how the resulting project is going to be run 
compared to how OpenWRT was run in the past?

The two extreme positions (neither of which is likely, but both of which are 
possible) are:

1. LEDE devs are giving up running their own project and going back to the 
OpenWRT status-quo, but taking their changes with them

2. OpenWRT devs are joining LEDE and everything will run as LEDE has run, just 
taking over the name and existing resources of OpenWRT

I expect that the reality is somewhere in between, but I haven't seen anything 
about what is being planned.

It's very possible that I've missed something, and if so, please point me at 
what I've missed.
