I'd be happy if you could give me some updates on versions,
methodologies and URLs.
As there was no answer on this topic in 20 days, I'll copy and paste
here spiccinini's answer that was posted on the Riot/Matrix chat 
I'll add some more observations:

In my opinion it would be better to have an OpenWrt19.07-based
but to have a OpenWrt18.06-based release is much
much better than no
release at all (which is the current situation: LibreMesh17.06 is 3
years old now).
Chef backend and frontend is currently being rewritten by aparcar and
coworkers in a completely different shape [2,3] and anyway does not
sense to have a Chef for something that is not a
So, currently the suggested compilation method is the one described
the website on "Compiling LibreMesh from
source code" .
According to the website, this method ("Compiling LibreMesh from source
code") uses OpenWRT 18.04, is it ok to use 19.07 instead?
If that's not problematic, is there anything else I should do or know
besides changing the version in the git clone command?
The pending issues for making a release based on
OpenWrt18.06 or on
OpenWrt19.07 does not differ much  but there is at least a
significant one regarding Batman-adv configuration.
I started selecting some high-priority issues which in my opinion
