After some discussion on the IRC channel, we came up with the idea of supporting to copy a project instead of forking it (so it doesn't end up in the fork/ namespace). I imagined this as a "Copy" button next to the "Fork" button :)
This would have the following additional advantages:
Assuming the identity of the "parent copy" is tracked in "child copies", it should also be easy to have a nice UI for PRs from/to copies - like the one that's already in place for creating PRs from forks or branches.
Some instances would probably prefer top-level "copies" over "forks" (like it works on GitHub / GitLab), so it would be nice if support for either things could be turned on / off per instance.
Some users might also prefer to turn off "copying" per project.
I suspect there is a strong use case for this with the Fedora Docs repositories, particularly the default template repo.
