Oddly enough, there is now a network/softphone called Ring[1] and so
telepathy-ring may become confusing, it may need to be renamed
telepathy-mobile or something.

Telepathy is a modular framework, the link you provided is a
connection manager (CM) that appears to run within a Telepathy system,
it doesn't appear to be a fork or alternative to the core Telepathy

Telepathy is currently in many Linux desktops.

There has been some talk about improving the GNOME Empathy front-end,
I'm not sure about the state of the KDE front-end, but they do work as
they are.
