(I'm one of the authors of the fork, but I didn't know this was covered
here until *right* now.)
This is indeed a bit unclear. The fork is called "Corona Contact Tracing
Germany", or CCTG. Upstream (the official German corona contact tracing
app) is called "Corona-Warn-App". The link in this section goes to the
upstream repository. The link to the rebuild instruction go to our fork.
And yes, this is a working app and it's fully compatible to the official
app in all regards. There's been a few months of effort from the microG
project in reimplementing the underlying google ENF API.
