I don't know, but personally, I think that a fork over something like
this would be a bad idea. We don't fork every program that uses the word
"Linux" instead of "GNU/Linux" to refer to the operating system in its
documentation, for example. If you're concerned about it, perhaps you
could write to the maintainer and ask them to use neutral terms (e.g.
"FLOSS" instead of "OSS" on their main page).
