[Rubygems-developers] Canonical Repo and Forks?

I was considering applying this one-character and (seemingly) obvious
bugfix pull request which just came in:

http://github.com/rubygems/rubygems/pull/5
http://github.com/sampierson/rubygems/commit/cf35d780d26eb8d6294786badf72c7e8b5e76744

However, I'm unclear on the current state of things, especially in
context of the recent thread discussing regressions.  Questions:

* Where is the canonical repo?  The one on Github?  Is the rubyforge
repo dead now?  Can we delete it?  I've got both on CI for now [1],
[2].
* If I commit to master branch on github, do I need to apply the patch
to any other branches or forks?
* Are there any forks which to which I might not have access (e.g.
1.9)?  If so, what do I need to do in this case?  Put in a ticket
and/or patch to Ruby?
* Against which forks/branches should I run unit tests (whether I can
commit or not?)
* Are the answers to these questions documented anywhere other than
other committer's heads?
