Description

hpcloud/tail has been completely dormant for 2 years and half. Development continued under nxadm/tail. The maintainer released the library with modules, updates dependencies and fixed a lot of bugs (and merged open PRs). I saw that the lib entered Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu. I am a user that moved from hpcloud to nxadm.
