Well, posting to OpenWrt-devel with news about LEDE seems to me like
an act of propaganda/advertising/boasting or whatever the word could
be.  I do not think I have the role/hat/intention to play that...

Besides, I do not think the extra mail will do much help anyway as
it's very likely those concerned with the merge are already subscribed
to both mailing lists.

The better plan could be there were two guys volunteered to each watch
activities of a single side and prepare a digest/summary/brief or any
such thing together with emphasis on their possible effects on
possible future merge and cross-post it to both openwrt-devel and
lede-dev.  That way we will have a written down records/checklist to
review for the merge to happen.

But I probably have talked too much and will digress if going any further...
