I’ve created a v0.2 milestone, as I’ll be doing some work on this in order to add it to our VIP shared plugins repo. Austin Smith (@netaustin) may also be using it for a project and incorporating some post meta forking functionality.

@benbalter should we use the Google Group you created as a public email list for the commit log? Github doesn’t yet support this natively, so we need to set up a mailing list somewhere.
@benbalter can you add @mjangda to the Github repo so he can check out the code?
After temporarily disabling custom capabilities, I’ve created my first fork! Doing so raises a few questions though:
- What is the plugin supposed to be doing? What problem does it solve?
- Do I publish a fork? If not, how do I merge it back into the original?
- Should forks be a public post type if they aren’t intended to be published?
Based on my prior opinions, forks shouldn’t be a public post type by default. The point of “creating” a fork is to be able to make edits to another post type, and then be able to “submit a pull request” to have your changes merged back into the original. This is what v0.1 should be.
