Yes and no. Forking at the hoster side has several advantages. You get a 
free host for the remote, the forks are categorized and associated with 
the mainline, the actual changes in the fork are visible for anyone 
(most importantly for the maintainers of mainline). And you get the 
forks of several contributors collected in a single place making it 
easier for people to pick out their favorite changes etc.

Best regards.
