Merging wiktionary would definitely be great. But that'd be a tough task.

In fact, I am not sure if we should even maintain a fork. Maintaining it (as a 
hosted project) as upstream is going to be a herculean task. It will require a 
lot of effort, time and commitment to it. Also, I don't think I have the 
necessary skill set to maintain a project of this magnitude as upstream. I am 
a user for it but upstream maintenance is going to be a different thing.

For the current database that it is, IMO NMUing it, as has been happening 
might be the best bet. This way we don't lose this software (and all the data 
it brings with it).

But if there are many people with interest in it to maintain, I think we could 
set up a team and work together.
