The point you are missing is that some of the OpenWrt core team is living 
in a non-EU timezone. We can pick a PDT timeslot that won't work for 
anyone living in EU, and say that LEDE is not interested in the 
discussion, but that's just not the proper way.

It is one thing that there are no commits currently from anyone, until the 
OpenWrt/LEDE discussions are made.

See above. We don't plan to play dead. Also, IIRC there are patches for
targets which are/were maintained by LEDE members. As far as I know,
commit rights have not been revoked (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).

Yes, there might be some confusion about this, we are still lagging a bit 
behind due to the surprise fork. Luka sent a mail on some of the 
planned moves, please refer to that thread. (Jow, thanks for the 
buildbot-related number crunching.)

If I start a discussion about my employer-related topics along a beer with 
a couple friends, that's a private discussion with personal opinions. If I 
do it on any public channel, I can be felt to represent my employer on 
that topic. You seem to be representing LEDE.
