I prpose to to call the other fork 'GG' and 
drop 'five' from all references. Version numbers tend to change.

Good idea to remove version number as it changes and confusing anyway.GG is not a good name though because he may "age out" and hopefully Cinelerra lives forever!"Cin" is a good/easy name alternative and is the name already in use in 5.1.
Something like below as I have noticed a lot of usage of CVO to represent the CV Original 
"real" Community version.
CVO | Cin
Also, I personally am not opposed to having HV there also, even though can't support it, 
because any use of any version of cinelerra promotes the package and its usage.  Adamand the whole community over the years has put so much work into the software and thesite is for the "Community".  This is just my opinion.   Phyllis

First we need to find a name for the gg branch. It is not nice to have 
branch name vs version name. I prpose to to call the other fork 'GG' and 
drop 'five' from all references. Version numbers tend to change.

Terje, write a draft. I expect comparision from an user who really uses 
both forks.
