I don't understand what you mean by the "main project". Clearly you can develop a project based on the OS Templot code, but I'm puzzled how you could require anyone else to regard it as the main or only project?

Open-source programs often fork into several different versions. Some Templot users may be looking for different usability, but others may be happy with the existing usability and more interested in adding functionality -- such as say a "make outside-slip" tool, or including the UK vertical 1432mm double-curved flat-bottom switches in the available switch presets.

If you are struggling, you may find these pages helpful:

cheers,

Martin.
