up to now a Wikipedia sister-project meant that its content is (mostly)
disjoint with the content of any other Wikipedia project. That means that an
article is either in A or in B (or = exclusive or).
The proposed project "wikispecies" will have a huge overlap with existing
Wikipedia articles. Therefore using the term sister-project is IMHO wrong,
and calling it a "partial fork" is much closer to reality.
