I don't know the ESP people, but from my POW their fork could easily

Of course I may be horribly wrong;)

the big trouble is AFPL upstream code is not under GPL license so it's impossible to merge patches into it. And the only one option is to maintain an external patch(or repository) as Fedora or ESP are doing. And doing sync with new GPL releases.

Or a _real_ fork.
