Wow, that was a very good read. Thank you for that. I definitely have
been using the wrong terms. upstream & origin are interchangeable, yet
I was using them to represent two distinct repositories.

I think going forward my central repository will be named 'origin' and
for the name of the second, nothing has really jumped out at me yet
but it'll either be "fork" or "proxy"... "surrogate" would be nice too
if it wasn't such a long word in comparison.

I'm sure you guys will find a name for it in good time. I wonder what
Linus would suggest.
