Yes, clipit was the fork I was thinking of.  As pabs mentioned in a
separate email, clipit is currently its own package but there was talk
about replacing parcellite with it.

As far as I can tell, the maintainer of parcellite is definitely active,
since he uploaded a version of parcellite 5 days ago[1].  I have CC'ed
Andrew, whom I hope will reply within a couple of days.

right is to offer to become a co-maintainership.
