RML is still closed source.  Our core business involves document servers
priced at USD 25k and up as part of enterprise projects, and it would be
almost impossible to keep selling these if we open-sourced all the key

TRML is an independent partial implementation of the RML specification, 
and my main complaint about it is that they don't clearly describe it as 
such or provide support for their own users, so people
end up asking here and we can't help them.

I am not aware of any forks.

We have a few 'branches' but that's our problem ;-)  More on that later.
