CUPS has been forked after Apple supplied only one commit in all of 2020. How will this affect Linux operating systems and Arch?

I took the liberty to make the thread title more easy to read. Hope that was okay?

Right now this is a holding ground for the common patches used by the various Linux distributions, *BSD, etc. since Apple hasn’t been keeping up with the issues on the main repository. Our intention is to provide Apple with well-tested pull requests that ultimately end up in the Apple CUPS repository.

Changing the name is always a possibility, but the current goal isn’t to develop away from the Apple CUPS code so changing the name might send the wrong message.

I would say any improvement for cups is something much desirable.
