A while ago I heard there is a Community Fork of Magento2 which will include a lot more bugfixes with faster releases.

How can I start using it for my project?

That is Mage-OS Association: https://mage-os.org/

Mage OS now has 2 repositories:

  • Magento™ Mirrors (At this time, the mirror includes all packages for Magento versions 2.3.7 through 2.4.x). This is a public repository then no composer authentication is required.
  • Magento™ Nightly Builds

You can read more info here https://mage-os.org/distribution. They have plans to launch the Mage-OS Distribution and start accepting pull requests by the end of this year. Stay tuned for more!

To start a new project, you can choose the repository that fits your need:

  • Magento™ Mirrors: composer create-project --repository-url=https://mirror.mage-os.org/ magento/project-community-edition:2.4.5 mage-os, where mage-os is your project directory, you can this directory as you want.
  • Magento™ Nightly Builds: composer create-project --stability alpha --repository-url=https://upstream-nightly.mage-os.org magento/project-community-edition mage-os, where mage-os is your project directory, you can this directory as you want.

To switch your existing Magento project to Mage-OS, edit the composer.json to change repo.magento.com

to mirror.mage-os.org if you want to use Magento™ Mirrors repository

to upstream-nightly.mage-os.org if you want to use Magento™ Nightly Builds repository

Run composer update to update package.
And run the following commands to upgrade module, compile code, reindex, and deploy static content:

bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento setup:di:compile
bin/magento indexer:reindex
bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
