There is at least one case of "revival" from Attic to an external
project, HiveMind was resurrected as Gaderian[1], although I think the
energy ran out after some first couple of intensively months.
Harmony is a much larger project, it is not likely that enough big
group of people can pull it off, unless some serious corporate
backing. And my guess is that if a company is interested, then it
wouldn't surprise me they just clone it internally.

What you can't "fork" is the name. "Harmony" will stay with Apache,
and any new effort will have to choose another name.
