I do agree with Darren that it should have been named differently because it confuses people.

When Darren forked HylaFAX from Matthias Apitz he did not change the name. This only made sense, too... it was still HylaFAX. When Corel purchased WordPerfect they did not change the name. Why? Because it was still WordPerfect.

Darren sells a product based on a proprietary fork of HylaFAX ... it is called "HylaFAX Enterprise Edition". If he truly believes that forks should be named differently then he would have not used "HylaFAX" in the name of his product. Is HylaFAX Enterprise Edition still HylaFAX? Well, that's your call.

it should have been made clearer that the fork of hylafax on sourceforge is really a fork (different project).

I've tried to make the differences clear by the website content. However, the project development occurring at sourceforge is for the same project as the development at hylafax.org. They're just different cuts of code, basically.
