I'm surprised: what is relation between that python binding and the
python binding integrated in

I would have thought that it's the latter which is a fork, since AIUI
sphinx is supposed to be managed by CMU. But not all source files of
https://github.com/cmusphinx/pocketsphinx-python are present in
https://github.com/bambocher/pocketsphinx-python : the C pocketsphinx
library is not there for instance.

I guess discussion is needed with upstream to understand what should be
packaged, indeed. Even just the version numbering is not coherent
between them.
