Surely, this is a bit of a messy situation.  I'd rather not pollute the 
main Drupal repository with forked modules. That would be a nasty 
precedent.  If the sole reason this module exists, is the 
volunteer.module I'd bundle it as such -- that is, put the forked forms 
module in contrib/modules/volunteer along with an explanation.

Would that work for you?
