I am sorry to tell you that the described scenario is from using github :P

Yeah ... right ... So those forks would be "private" public, right? What if,
if I as a user choose to not use the officiall repo, because it is not
maintained properly or because a feature is there i really care about, but
the maintainer doesn't want to integrate it properly.
I take it that those repositories would constantly rewrite history publicly?
How is that usable then?
