The Rebel scum known as the LEDE Project have broken away from the OpenWRT project in an unannounced move meant to increase transparency. Jokes aside, The Register named seven of the developers who are part of this forking, a not uncommon practice in open source projects. LEDE will try to bring in fresh enthusiasm to a Linux project which has been losing the interest of programmers, perhaps due to the lack of transparency that they cite or possibly just due to waning interest in a long running project. Pop on over to their page to see their mission statement, rules and processes if you are interested in how they compare to OpenWRT.
"The LEDE Project – Linux Embedded Development Environment – describes itself as a breakaway project that wants to overcome what it sees as faults in OpenWRT."
