No, you misread it. The "fork" word that appears there is not what we
commonly intend by forking: instead, it means branching off the
development tree, stabilize it for a while, make a release, then
synchronize again with upstream and when the time is mature branch
again, and so on.
This is what all WebKit ports do.

Let's try not to panic whenever we read the "fork" word in a document
from Canonical. ;-)
