It is not meant to be a fork, nor do I recall ever calling the two words in 
one sentence :)

My aim is still to provide a distro, build alongsite and with Drupal. But with 
a different focus. With modules that are selected for their useability and 
developers-friendlyness. And with core tools for unit-tests, agile 
development and rapid protoyping (and probably a load of other 
buzzwords :) ). 

But a fork? No. I am even working on/with the railfrog team to build some 
completely different CMS from ground up because getting Drupal to serve these 
needs I have would indeed require a fork. But a fork with a lot of work ;). 
And maintaining such a fork is not what I would call fun. Its double the 
work, youll have to develop in two systems if your such a maintainer.

So hereby: officcially and signed in blood (haha) no: I am not working on a 
fork. Sympal is (going to be) just a distro. A different toolset.
