That's not upstream. That's the (hijacked) fork by Nagios Enterprises 
being the domain and trademark owner, but not being the original 
development team.

Probably you should dig a bit into history, like [0] or [1] or [2]

The original upstream was required to be renamed to 
http://www.monitoring-plugins.org which provides the *trusted* upgrade 
path for the sources built into debian binary packages. I'd call that 
upstream, but ask Jan, he'll know better who to trust.

Some further discussion was already here [3] introducing a rename to 
monitoring-plugins while still providing a clean, trusted upgrade path 
to all existing users (which I am and I also do care for the Icinga 

'nagios-plugins-2,0' should probably get a new package named 
'nagios-enterprises-plugins' or 'nagios-core-plugins' as already 
suggested in other distribution bug reports.
