This is not about ego, it is about politness are recognition. A part of the motivation of creating open source software of any kind is creating a "brand name" from your name. Because there is no other positive feedback then happy users and the usage of your software. Other commercial things like getting paid, a pat on the back from your boss, some magazine prizes or whatever usually don't happen.

And of course forks are an important part of the open source culture and there are many reasons to create a fork. But if you do it be polite and nice and notify the original author so she or he (in this case fons) can port back interesting or good changes. Especially in a scene and community like Linux Audio where it is actually possible to know most of the persons names and projects by name.
I don't think that is too much to ask for.

I look forward to the new Aeolus version. Thank you, please keep up the good work Fons. Many people (I know personally) use your software and are very statisfied. Me included.
