I'm not sure what you mean by ownership.

GitHub does not have a notion of ownership or "official" repository 
across forks (its does track forks though, so you could say it has a 
notion of "upstream").

Like Anil, I'm not exactly sure how forge helps in this case as Active 
development would still occur on github. And I guess the idea is to 
allow users to understand where to find most resent sources. Opam should 
be able to provide a reference to the relevant fork on github.
