You can do statistics various ways to tell various truths ;)

Well, blogic was the release manager and nbd was the lead developer.  
Please tell me what decision power did they lack.

Let's see what technical changes has been introduced in LEDE  

- swithing to git
- switching to timed releases
- getting rid of trac
- making patch submission easy
- stop upgrading to kernels not fully tested

These changes have been proposed by me and by others, blocked by nbd and  

Let's look at the rules (https://www.lede-project.org/rules.html):

1. sounds nice, already outruled by "2"
2. that was the case in openwrt from the beginning
3. same as "2"
4. I've proposed this with _1 year_ timeframe, blogic called me a fascist  
and blocked it with nbd
5. same in openwrt, the only exception back in time was when we didn't  
have a separate packages repo (so _package maintainers_ had access limited  
to own packages)
6. this was the case with openwrt from day 0. This is how even blogic  
became a developer fyi.
7. ok, the first difference - voted were not public, decisions became  
8. second difference - we've tried to be as independent as possible eve  
with the disadvantages that came as a price
9. some infra was in sole control of people in LEDE, others are not in  
their control (but almost never under a sinle person's control)
10. we do offer those - for developers representing the project
11. n/a
