I don't like what I think is happening.
The FOP community is here, what does your ISP have to do with it?

You have the *right* to branch and continue parallel development here. This
is how it should be done. If not, it's not a FOP effort, it's your personal

IMHO it's not necessary, but you have more experience than me on this.

The fact that I didn't even know of your effort, and still don't know where
