There is no "owner", although you can see the people that modified it if 
you click on the little clock icon on the right.

I'm "bobafetthotmail" wiki user, I ported that wiki page more or less 
as-is from OpenWRT wiki.
Since I know little of routing (in LEDE or otherwise) I just gave it its 
own article, splitting it from a larger page with many networking 
topics, but I could not really change it or add anything to it.

If you want to improve it, please register/login in the wiki and do so.
