Hi,

Thank you for the interest in the project! But really, there is no
need to fork GoboLinux: if you want to work on developing a Gobo-like
distro, why not taking the lead at developing GoboLinux itself? The
distro seems "dormant" right now, but there are people working on
keeping Gobo alive: check the #gobolinux channel at irc.freenode.net
-- that is the main hub of development now.

We're all interested in having a thriving distro based around the
original ideas of GoboLinux, but unfortunately the original developers
like me don't have the time/focus/energy to work on it anymore. Still,
we're always keeping the doors open to whoever would like to join the
Gobo community and work on the project.

Cheers!
