+Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
+== What devices does LEDE targets?
+LEDE mainly targets embedded devices capable of running Linux. In most cases wireless routers. This has not changed compared to OpenWrt.
+== Is LEDE represented by any Company or Industry organization?
+No LEDE is not affiliated with any specific company or any industry organization.
+== The company I work for uses LEDE and wants to support the project. What should we do?
+The best support is that you allow and encourage your employees to contribute your changes back to the LEDE project.
+This way others can also benefit from your changes and you reduce your maintenance cost because you need less patches when using more recent versions of LEDE.
+== Are there plans to license LEDE under a different License?
+There are no plans to change the license of the LEDE code. It should be easy to copy code from and to OpenWrt.
+== Were there any technical reasons to split from OpenWrt?
+Nothing special, expect that LEDE wants to focus more on stability and not so much on bleeding edge any any more.
+The release process should be better automatized and the release should be better tested.
+== Will OpenWrt Chaos Calmer still be supported?
+OpenWrt Chaos Calmer will be supported with security and bugfixes by the OpenWrt project.
+== Where is the LEDE Wiki?
+This is work in progress.
+== Where is the Forum?
+Currently we have mailing lists, see https://lede-project.org/communication.html
+== Where should I send my patches for LEDE and OpenWrt integration?
+Send them to both mailing list, probably the same person will take care of the patch on both sides.
