I wrote a blog post about the technical details of rampsliding:

Rampsliding Is a Quake Engine Quirk in the Same Way That Bunnyhopping Is

Here’s a snippet:
The obvious assumption would be that [rampsliding] is an intentional feature that uses things like the slope of the surface and the player’s velocity to determine when a player is rampsliding, but that is not the case. In fact, in the same way that bunnyhopping was likely an unintentional quirk of the ‘air acceleration’ code, rampsliding was likely an unintentional quirk of the ‘categorize position’ code.
