Sorry, there's no interesting story behind the name. Per chose it simply because he thought it sounded cool, it was short, it was fairly easy to remember and it had the mandatory X in the end to make it UNIX/Linux-ish ;)
Well, the standard answer to this question is “when it's done”. New versions are however usually released every 3 or 4 months. Between releases, updated packages are made available through the ports system.

No, that's incorrect. CRUX was built from scratch and has never been based on any other Linux distribution.
Most of the developers and users prefer mailing lists over forums. It's much simpler to follow discussion when using a mailing list--forums require constant polling if you are trying to stay up to date about what's happening.
First off try searching the mailing lists. Browsing the archives (marc.theaimsgroup.com provides a nice, searchable archive) is always a good way to start. If that doesn't work, try asking in one of the IRC channels.
Create ports and maintain a repository of your own, help people on the mailing list and in the IRC channels and write documentation.
