Why do you assume that?

I made a number of patches, I notified the original author and he merged them in.
I worked on the project some more and almost completely rewrote many
parts of it. I notified the author, he thought that there's no point
for having duplicate work and he dropped the original project.

My repo started as a 'convenience' repo. I have many machines that I
work on so it is easier to just pull my dev repo from
than keep track of patches that the original author may or may have
not merged. Then it kinda went from there.
