I guess the real test will be what happens going forward - if LEDE dies
for the same reasons OpenWrt was dying then that puts paid to LEDE's
story; it it succeeds then it vindicates them.

I have no clue about this part, I'm not exactly in the loop.  I think
part of the problem has been that there is no means to add new
developers, and that suggestions for adding developers have been opposed
(that's a guess though).

Yeah, pretty much we're left guessing unless there is more information
given.  I'm thinking the LEDE split was not like a conspiratorial split
where everything is carefully planned out and orchestrated, but more of
a rapid response (given that this isn't part of paid work for the most
of them, and even then the LEDE split wouldn't likely be part of the
job/contract) to something behind the scenes.  Even if the LEDE team is
unable to post to this list, I hope they give more information using the
avenues available to them, once they get the chance to do so.
