--- Comment #2 from Tomasz "CeDeROM" CEDRO <tomek@cedro.info> ---
I have encountered similar problems recently when porting tools for NuttX RTOS
development on FreeBSD, specifically genromfs and kconfig-frontends. It turned
out that kconfig-frontends maintenance is abandoned, folks used simple copy of
the package, but there was no central upstream repository. (what is more there
were two known diverged sources on Debian using version 4.11 and Espressif GH
using version 4.6). People from GNU / Linux world does not see that as problem.

GitHub is really easy to maintain and process patches as HPS mentioned, also
provides reliable packages hosting, but it also may create a diverged fork when
not merged back to the upsteam :-)
