You can do a fork on code.vtiger.com just as easily as you can on 
github. You can fork it and add new features and contribute them back. I 
do this. I wrote the instructions here 
http://code.vtiger.com/vtiger/vtigercrm on how to fork it, fix or change 
something and contribute back your improvements.
There have been some issues getting prompt reviews of merge requests, 
and I have raised concerns about that and many fixes got in, along with 
a few features. There is a ton more in the pipeline and I have a fork 
with a comprehensive update of all the javascript libraries (doesn't 
fully work yet, I haven't had time to complete it and my country seems 
to have just broken, which is a bit of a distraction).

Doing a branding fork, creating "wtiger" or whatever is a *heap* of work 
and risk I don't want to do, and customers are asking for help with 
their vtiger, not yetiforce or sugarcrm or anything else.

If there was a really convincing number of unloved merge requests, then 
I might be tempted to do something but there really isn't. If I was to 
suggest a change, I really want the on-demand stuff to be resynced with 
the open source project, the open source code should lead the on-demand 
platform because I don't want to waste my time doing stuff that has 
already been done, perhaps in an incompatible way.
