It's not necessary to package the forks if the fork is merged back
upstream, and we can refuse to package impacted packages until things
improve.  Or if upstream is unmaintained, point the
go-golang-org-x-crypto package at the protonmail fork (*).  Go
packaging needs to become less cracy.  We don't have to participate in
spreading the dependency hell.

(*) Looking at
the reason appears to be a lack of maintaining, but looking at
<>, upstream appears to be active
again, so AFAICT they don't have a reason anymore.
