You are correct. These are bundled libraries, not forks. And not
because of the same name... Forking is a bad idea unless upstreams are
unable to work together. So if there's something like a bugfix that's
needed, we (The Fedora Packaging Committee) would want to know why the
change hasn't gone into the other package (ie: grit) as the bugfix would
presumably hekp out other consumers of grit as well.
In the case of grit, upstream
has almost 'abandoned' the project.
You can see that the commit history is very sparse and of the 111 issues
on the issue tracker  more than the half of them are Pull Requests
fix some bugs or enhance the app.
As far as I know, GitLab will switch to rugged , but that is not
going to happen
for another year as it still lacks some needed functionality. Therefore
the grit fork.
