Yeah I'm with Greg on this one - we don't need github forks etc, my
strategy has thus far been to just wait for staging-testing to
coalesce into a more up-to-date state and then work on top of that as
needed. Extra forks just introduce more complexity and more to watch +
keep track of in my opinion, as the e-mails still keep flowing in
anyway :-)

Phil
