That is an easy semi routine request. Github will happily un-attach a
forked repo. Just contact them requesting such. Or you can delete the
repo and re-upload a copy. That will do the same.
Just the same with owners permission you can also change the root of
any forks. Like making codehaus-plexus the root, and sonatype a fork of
that. I did that via owners permission for JTidy. It is now the root,
it was not before.
Though I would likely keep it a fork if the other is archived. Other
repos do that for historic purposes.
