This one is a bit tricky. On the one hand, people are referencing our
Github repositories in their scripts and dependent projects, so we should
keep it around at least for a while; on the other hand, Github doesn't
allow disabling PRs (AFAIK), so deleting the project would give developers
a clear signal where to contribute.

I realize this is bikeshedding, but I also very much prefer the LEDE
design, it looks much more modern. In particular:
- everything with a lot of text has a white background; generally colors
are used sparingly
- thin grey borders instead of thick black ones

The OpenWrt forum design looks a bit better than the landing page, but it
still feels too heavy due to the colored backgrounds.
