Which is your github fork?  Do you / Did you integrate some 'floating
patches' from the mailing list?  I personally and as the maintainer of
the Gentoo package would pull and make packages from anybody who steps
up and does stuff that makes sense.  That's the "github popularity
contest" and if the 'official repo' can't compete, so what?

A more integrative approach would be to make you a member of the github
organization.  You should probably contact these people personally:
