The github one was a somewhat unintentional fork of the in-tree one by
the XCP/XenServer folks and the in tree one has lagged somewhat.

Thanos is working on resolving that fork as part of his blktap3 effort,
which apart from taking the github stuff also removes the need for the
kernel driver.

If anything I would expect github to have more not less features.
