That is what Open Source is all about. If anyone decides that a
project doesn't match your needs, feel free to spring your
own. Competition is good.

There has been a Velocity clone announced here a while ago and even
Velocity has been incepted at the very beginning as a WebMacro clone.

If someone wants to contribute to the Velocity core, feel free to join
us over at -dev. However, as some of the discussions on this list
might have illuminated; the priorities of some developers might be
different from the priorities of the main Velocity driving forces
(first Geir, now mainly Will).

So I can understand that people either fork or start all over. About
forking: The ASF license explicitly encourages that by just requiring
you to acknowledge from where you came ("This project uses Software
developed by the Apache Software Foundation") and not forcing you to
put all your changes back out in the open which might not even be
possible.

No. IMHO.
