One simple question:
If LEDE team members are the ones who were suffering from some
non-democratic decisions, why didn't they bring it to public
discussion for community? At least on devel maillist?

If it was clear problem in remaining OpenWrt team then LEDE would win
the community right away or maybe problematic people would just go
away. Either way it would be more fair and open. And this is one of my
biggest concerns - LEDE team is promoting openness but didn't do their
moves openly (looking at maillists it seems they were hiding it for
month at least). Hate double standards.
