are these forks maintained in VCSs?


Historically forks have been needed because fixes in stable are hard. If stuff breaks in testing or unstable you usually need to fix it quicker than with a point release. A point could be made that the changes should be pushed to stable instead.

As far as I know there's also still no builddadm-maintainable puppet tree. (Partly my fault I acknowledge, because I hoped to be able to do rabbitmq, but failed working against a black box I don't understand.) If we could ship the relevant helper scripts through Puppet (and unify configuration) we could also make most of the fork moot and just cherry-pick new versions from testing.

Kind regards
