Years of internal discussion led nowhere. Maybe it helps now that we're
making the whole issue public.

No, they don't. They state that the LEDE project won't provide project
email addresses. Interpreting that as meaning that we shouldn't be able
to access our openwrt.org addresses is more than a bit of a stretch.

So? Asking us to not send any further emails about LEDE from our
openwrt.org addresses should have been enough.
