For a "fork" feature I would use

-   Giti

    Is a wiki site that uses Git and Pandoc. This means that will be easy to
    anyone to fork your project and they can export the pages to almost any
    format (e.g. ODF, DOCX, EPUB, Wikimarkup used my MediaWiki, ...)

-   ikiwiki

    Is another wiki site that uses Git.

-   Federated Wiki, https://github.com/fedwiki

    This one is experimental so I will not use it right now for something

You can use MediaWiki.

Solve the problem of information be stored in different locations and one is not
aware of the other ones is a "feature" of the internet design.
