Cnprog appears to be inactive, but is still strong in the form of askbot. OSQA is also a clone of CNPROG. I am not sure how active is osqa development, seems to have slowed.

In terms of bugs fixed Askbot is the best (from the three you've mentioned), I keep bugs out by writing test cases for every new feature.

You can monitor project activity and history here: Besides my own there are some contributions by several other people - mostly translations at this point, but forks are welcome.

Other projects that I'd mention are Shapado (Ruby/Rails) and Question2Answer (PHP). Maybe there are other decent ones, but I don't have time to research - who will tend to askbot then :)?
