After monitoring this thread for updates and coming to the realisation that openwrt is now useless, also LEDE is useless as my dozen or so Tp-Link WR703n devices are 4/32 which is plastered all over the LEDE site as being not acceptable. Very windowish alarming!!!!
I have come to the conclusion that DD-WRT is the way to go and will update all my devices to a project which is not in limbo, supports its users and does not present with the 4/32 limitation of LEDE
I would put a link here, but that is not permitted due to spam. One would think a community would be able to organise a different method of preventing spam, but instead use a sledgehammer approach.

Yes 4\32 are highly discouraged as there is no room to add much if anything to these images. But at least you can. DD-WRT does not offer a package manager.
DD-WRT is not as rosey as you point out. The router database on the home page is not maintained so the versions you see may (are) not the KRACK patched product. The latest versions are in folders that are not clearly visible. I had to actually make a post get a link to the KRACK patched product which is here: https://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=311799 There may be versions after this too.
OpenWrt does not seem to be doing anything to help the user of "Release" product which is unfortunate. If you use trunk and can build, both your issues are resolved, but not mine.
LEDE has made packages available for the older versions of 17.01, but on 4\32 devices there may not be enough room to install and 17.01.04 compiled versions may be available.
LEDE has a build for the 703 and you can find it on the bottom of the device page.

There are different versions of the MR3420 and they are available by drilling down from here.

I do not see a version for this in the DD-WRT router database, but there is a V1 solution at the DD-WRT link above.
I do not think you did sufficient research on any of these products.
Regarding links, after you reach a level of trust, I think about 10 posts, you will be allowed to post links.
