Can you be more specific about what you believe is LEDE's 'true nature'?

This is a guess: perhaps it is connected to the fact that Felix's
nbd at openwrt.org address now bounces, and that actions were taken which
were deemed to be over-the-top by the LEDE team?  Certainly there is a
great deal more doing on that either side is saying in public (which
might be just as well since there seems to be a fair amount of bad
feelings on both sides).

Perhaps 'under-the-hood' is the problem.  Did everyone with concerns
know or have insight into what steps were currently being taken and what
was planned, and have planned actions been followed through on, once
*agreed* as a solution?

Also, is the decision making process egalitarian and democratic amongst
those still actively in the project, or are some 'more equal' than others?
