That shouldn't matter:
subtledoctor can fork Ardanis repo, clone it locally to his MAC, delete all files (commit "cleanup"), put all files from this file http://gibberlings3....ds&showfile=706 into repository (commit "version 8 BETA"), implement his fixes, Big world Fixpack fixes and you new one and finally push it. Later he can transfer repository to https://github.com/CamDawg or https://github.com/Gibberlings3/.
What matters is that it doesn't involve all additional work to create "gibberlings3" release and we can have fixed version instantly, not after x months. Now, since there is someone who can fix mod directly, I'm not gonna put 2x more time into creating patches for Big world Fixapck only to remove them two days after.
Make it happen
Please don't do that. It violates the policy we have in place for hosting G3 mods on GitHub and it would also be a mess to sort out later. Ardanis' repo started at v7 and its commits were planned for a v8 that was never finished; CamDawg's v8 is something completely different.
