I'll speak for myself.

I feel more comfortable with LEDE:
1) Rules are straight there
2) No single people controlling infrastructure and refusing to help
3) No decisions made behind the doors
That will make me focus on LEDE. Of course this is open source world,
OpenWrt can pick my changes.

*However* I'd like to maintain 15.05 OpenWrt branch for some time (few
months?). Unfortunately I feel unsure about my access to OpenWrt repo
in the future. First some @openwrt.org e-mails were deleted/disabled.
That made me ask about my commiting permissions:
[2016-05-05] [14:41:32] <rmilecki> [mbm]: Kaloz: can we still commit to OpenWrt?
[2016-05-05] [14:45:28] <wigyori> as far as I know you can
[2016-05-05] [16:21:09] <matteo> rmilecki: yes
it looked fine, but few days later I was kicked out of
openwrt-hackers@ mailing list silently.

I really would like to have a straight message from whoever takes
these decisions at OpenWrt. What are your plans? Do you want me/us to
stop contributing to OpenWrt?
