Creating an official fork on github?

Jun 7, 2015 at 5:54 PM
Hi everyone,

it's been considered on another thread, and I would like to make a suggestion: on github, creating a new group, and forking the current project there.
This group would include the original author which could then claim its work back.
Do you think it's a good idea?

It's OpenSource with a BSD-License.
If you want to support it, you are free to fork it.

Maybe this will help you: https://github.com/darinkes/ssh.net
But I don't have the time and energy to support/improve such a project.

Of course everyone's free to fork it, with the risk of losing a central repository where all improvements fall back.
Since your fork is up to date, you could just create a group (SSH.NET? SSHNET?), change ownership of your fork to this new group.
Then you could add a few other people to the group, including https://github.com/drieseng (the original author of this project).
We could then move the issues and create a small organisation just to keep the project alive.
Also, we probably need to create a NuGet package.
What do people think of this?

I think this is a good idea. It will make the project move a lot quicker with more contributions. I certainly hope the original authors can see its value and join in with the move.

I like this idea as well. da_rinkes, thoughts?
