One thing to try here is contribute all changes back to the original author(s), at least as
patch submissions, so giving them the option to incorporate it.

The usual benefits of single-source/limited-diff OSS codebases apply, it's good community
practise and stops your project unintentionally adopting a "let's fork everything" process.

That doesn't mean you can't keep the source in git/svn (for .py libraries, this is what you
end up doing anyway), only that your project should avoid taking on all the maintenance.
