    Ian has represented the open-source community diligently for quite a few years as a member of the OpenGL ARB. He's a very skilled and intelligent person, and is widely regarded as one of the people that have made open-source accelerated 3D possible.

    If you'd like to fork, the code is right in front of you. Have fun.
