wtf are you talking about ?  Gentoo was always been the upstream of it.

no clue what you're talking about.  Gentoo wrote baselayout from scratch, and 
then rewrote baselayout-2 from scratch in C to address some fundamental issues 
at the time.  then Roy stepped up to do a lot of the work and when he decided 
to part ways from Gentoo over POSIX shell/ebuild issues, but wanted to keep 
working on baselayout-2, we allowed him to do this.  so he renamed the core 
bits to openrc and moved the development off of Gentoo infra.

it's already cleaned up.  this is the "squash regressions from baselayout-1 
and make sure all stable packages are happy with it" phase.
