I'm just a lurker on this list but this is exactly the kind of email I
have missed in the past. I have no moral right to comment on the points
you have brought up, but bringing them up transparently on the public
mailing list for every developer/fanboy/contributor/lurker/.. to comment
on is what has been missing from the OpenWrt project up to now, IMHO.

I really hope that you will get lots and lots of replies to your
message. And, yes, these replies may point in every direction possible
and the will contradict each other and some will be out of tune (like
mine). But if you get the feeling of what the community at large thinks
about the issues you brought up, it was worth it. And I am sure that the
community will thank you for their opportunity to be heard by supporting
you even if the outcome of the issue in question was not in their favour.

And please, the next time you'd like to go to an OpenWrt/LEDE related
event and feel that you can not afford it, do speak up. I'm sure that
I'm not the only one being able to toss in a couple of bucks into the
hat for such a thing. Getting to know the other devs face to face,
having a beer (or two) and then, later, being able to attach a face (and
hopefully fond memories) to an email address has proven to be invaluable
for me in my job. Knowing people face to face can make the difference
between confrontation and compromise.

So, back to lurker mode for me.

With kind regards
