+ - A fundraiser to "unfork" htop on the Mac->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "It's usual to see initiatives to fork an open source project, but here's one that goes the other way around. After years getting bug reports from Mac users who were using a fork based on a 5-year old codebase, the original author of htop, the interactive process viewer for Linux, decided to try to take matters with his own hands. He started a fundraiser so he can work on a proper port himself. The original port has been done by stripping away all Linux code and replacing with Mac code — and this way it hasn't kept up with features and bugfixes. The plan of the fundraiser is to add a proper OS-abstraction layer and write Linux and Mac backends, so that htop can finally stop crashing on the Mac."
