Yeah thats fine. Like I said my definition of what I am looking for is 
kinda fuzzy (I will try to further clarify it - I think the best 
approach so far has been to say anything that either tries to be a fork 
by renaming or that is a fork by changing/adding significant code that 
is not intended to be made available upstream).

Anyways thanks for all the input.

So should I work on this inside the newly build wiki? I guess I will 
just ask the maintainer for an account and I will see what happens :)

Otherwise I will probably just publish the list on my open source 
related stuff wiki ..

regards,
Lukas
