No, it ins't a fork. Just to clarify, the original java source code of SEXTANTE has been transfered (in coordination with the original creator of SEXTANTE) to the gvSIG Community Edition (CE) repository NOT to the official gvSIG repository [1]. gvSIG CE is a fork of gvSIG made in 2011. 
In SEXTANTE there are now two versions: one in python managed by the QGIS community, one in java managed by the gvSIG CE project. Both versions are well coordinated with the original SEXTANTE project team.
QGIS and gvSIG CE have been the projects with more activity behind SEXTANTE since its creator announced that the development of SEXTANTE could not continue as a full-time work. 
Best regards
