Free or open source software may be forked with no prior permission,
per the definitions of "free software" ("Freedom 3: The freedom to
improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so
that the whole community benefits") and "open source" ("3. Derived
Works: redistribution of modifications must be allowed. (To allow
legal sharing and to permit new features or repairs.)"). ....
I thought Forks are considered an expression of the freedom made
available by free software...
Where are you getting your "protocol" from? do you have a link?

Josh: My name is Tweet, Thanks for respectfully asking why I forked
the project. My motivations are to write software that i can use and
share (licenses permitting). While Keith is educating me on some
arbitrary social protocol, i could be working on the project, but he
would rather reprimand me for doing something that he clearly admits
was completely acceptable, proper and legal.
Developers have the option to collaborate and pool resources with free
software, but it is not ensured by free software licenses, only by a
commitment to cooperation.
So...you want to share the project vision, development plans, etc I
could start contributing right away.
