Re: SBT branch in Ivy repo

IMHO sbt fork happened because Ivy was not using Git then.
GitHub shows clearly that the fork was created off Ivy repo clone created
by EasyAnt (which is dormant now).
So my idea is to graft their branch onto Ivy repo whereupon EasyAnt-derived
clones can be mothballed.
What happens next is an open question, sbt maintainers could either fork
the original Ivy repo or become committers.
Are there some political issues that I did not notice?
