One thing that has helped us over in the rsyslog project was that we spent a 
signficant chunk of time setting up Travis (tied into github) and have that 
doing compile/testsuite runs for PRs that are submitted.

It took quite a while to get done (very little other work for a couple release 
cycles, about 3 months) but the results have been well worth it.

It would be even harder to setup for LEDE as it is bigger and has more different 
compile options to test, but I think this would be a very worthwhile thing to 
do. It's also something that could be setup by someone outside of the core group 
(working with their own fork of the project until they get things functioning)
