I'd say that nowadays with CI testing and real peer reviews of every PR, every state of upstream/master branch is pretty good. In project that I'm part of, we regularly rebase our fork of NUT over the upstream du-jour and this does not induce breakage.

Of course, this way I can speak only for quality of the aspects our project does use daily (as is, or extended) - such as the core stuff, the nut-scanner, and networked snmp and netxml drivers, and systemd integration for the most part. We also happen to do much of the recent years' innovation in these areas and backport it to upstream... in part, egoistically - so we have even more testing and less codebase deviations to track :-)

I suggest your project does the same, because you can't really know how well drivers and other bits behave on different hardware until you expose them to different use-cases. But if the bits you want are in upstream/master - they most probably already worked at least once for somebody interested ;)
