That naturally depends on how Florian decides to work.

Worst-case (i.e. IgH continues to focus on their own work), we can
cherry-pick changes from their repo if/when that benefits our work.

But unless the IgH managed repository starts to accept community
contribution again, or we limit size of our "patchset", and thus limit
the amount of work we allow ourselves to do, it will at some point in
time become less relevant or realistic to cherry-pick from one
repository to the other.  It will end up as two forks.

But by deciding against forking, when not being able to get changes
merged, is practically the same as deciding not to be able to improve
the code.

I really hope they do, and hope they will participate in the discussion

Thanks for voicing your opinion :)
