Is forking the "GNU Image Manipulation Program" in order to give it a "less offensive name" a good idea or bad idea?

@lunduke@social.librem.one I saw already some of the discussion regarding the name in the past and just had a quick look at their repository. If they would just pull from the original repository after each upstream release, change the name and release their version, it might work for this imho rather small group. But as it seems like they also change other code parts and plan even more changes I wouldn't be surprised if nobody will talk about it in a few months down the road.
