A common question might be “is this a fork of GNU”?
Hahahahaha. Some time let's have ourselves a videocon with jitsi or big blue button
and gab a bit about things. I'll tell you the inside story of the EGCS for of gcc.
But I would suggest that the answer to this one be diplomatic and honest at the same time,
The term "fork" does not really apply. The GNU principles and standards and
projects are all the same. This is simply a place where governance on future decisions
can be made in a transparent manner. Also note that the scope of "future
decisions" is not huge.
