Not many, but there are enough skilled people on OpenWrt forums. Skill
is not biggest filter but willingness to write a forum post. I know
quite a few people who are skilled enough to do the tests, but none of
them would write it up as a forum post and share this info with
others. Why? They probably don't care enough and about OpenWrt forum

Here is one example of good test, it is for TPLink Archer C7 (Atheros)
which with stock firmware get's much better results than with OpenWrt
- https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=53703 so judge for
yourself if tests are done correctly. Maybe write up a wiki page for
instructions how to properly compare OpenWrt and stock firmware?
