It is strange to see you defining OpenWrt and LEDE as a same project -
especially due to the fact that LEDE is a fork (if you don't believe me
take a look at LEDE commit logs). To make things worse we've witnessed
that LEDE team members have been closing tickets or putting them in
"wontfix" state on official OpenWrt bugtracker - the fixes or
improvements did not land in OpenWrt while at the same time implementing
those changes in LEDE. While I don't mind in LEDE taking it's own
direction I do not approve this kind of behavior. Do you mind
explaining what does LEDE or its developers want to gain from such

Furthermore, I also find it extremely unprofessional to see you make
claims such as this one, c/p from Kathy's meeting summary: "Hauke
mentioned that some core developers don't like prpl." Who are these
"core" developers who make such claims? Are they even involved anymore
with OpenWrt?

I personally support prpl in this efforts due to the fact that last
summit was great and they did a good job with the conference and

I am okay with all options but due to the efforts shown by CZ.NIC I'm
most likely going to give my vote to Prague.

If prpl organizes the event and/or gives funding for it they should be
credited for doing it.
