Just what is upstream? :) Imho practically the repository you mention is
essentially upstream, by virtue of actually having activity i the last
few years.

Imho there are two options:
  - Either we officially deprecate the fd.o ring repository and add a
    note pointing the nemomobile one as a suggested continuation making
    it the de-facto upstream (Something jonny also mentioened).
 - Re-activate the fd.o telepathy-ring repository by syncing in the
   latest developments. However that depends on people willing to do the
   work and keep it updated, otherwise we'll have the same story again
   in a few years.

So basically the ball is in your court :). I'm more then happy to
advocate fd.o accounts for various people if it is preferred to maintain
it on fd.o (either as a primary or a mirror of the github repository) or
alternatively update the tp-ring information on fd.o pointing to the
github repository so it reflects reality.
