I think the problem also stems from Loic's (& others) inability to do 
anything useful with the codebase as it stands: I'm under the impression 
maintaining & extending SF is incredibly difficult currently; which doesn't 
surprise me because I had the same problem a while ago (maintaining a SF).

It's not really much good to attempt a fork in this instance.

BTW - another respository is, but that's limited to certain 
types of project.
