reimplementation (plural reimplementations)
The act of implementing again.
-Wiktionary

Hi guys! The idea here is bringing a new life to FUNCTIONALITY present in abandoned (or plain old) software.

This isn't about cloning a program carbon-copy, but reimplementing its functionality afresh!

Furthermore, it can be extended beyond what the original program allowed, accounting for modern times. A much-welcome refreshment for many users!



Programmers abandon functional programs all the time. Let's give those programs' functionality a second chance here at DC :)



Some benefits:

  • Creative Commons Zero v1.0 Universal: It is reimplemented using a truly-permissive open-source license with the source code and rights gifted to the public domain entirely (regained software freedom) hence continuity is reassured due to the new licensing.
  • Extending functionality: If you ever wanted a program to make something new yet it was abandoned, then this one's truly for you :)

Feel free to submit!

I'm always willing to help a fellow!
