Submission + - A fundraiser to "unfork" htop on the Mac (bountysource.com)

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.
