And I am puzzled how you don't accept that open source *allows*
forking and all that stuff, but that doesn't mean that competition is
necessarily good, or just felt as good. In particular not in a case,
when the code base is most likely 90% or more identical and there's a
lot of common history. And, likewise, not in a case like this where
competition primarily means that a lot of effort (building, mirroring,
...) will be spent for simply duplicating things that don't add any
value to either project.
