This document explains why [tview](https://github.com/rivo/tview) was forked to
create [cview](https://git.sr.ht/~tslocum/cview). It also tracks which
tview pull requests have been merged into cview.
# Why fork?
[rivo](https://github.com/rivo), the creator and sole maintainer of tview,
explains his reviewing and merging process in a [a GitHub comment](https://github.com/rivo/tview/pull/298#issuecomment-559373851).
He states that he does not have the necessary time or interest to review,
discuss and merge pull requests:
>this project is quite low in priority. It doesn't generate any income for me
>and, unfortunately, reviewing issues and PRs is also not much "fun".
>But some other people submitted large PRs which will cost me many hours to
>review. (I had to chuckle a bit when I saw [this comment](https://github.com/rivo/tview/pull/363#issuecomment-555484734).)
>Lastly, I'm the one who ends up maintaining this code. I have to be 100%
>behind it, understand it 100%, and be able to make changes to it later if
> necessary.
cview aims to solve these issues by increasing the number of project
maintainers and allowing code changes which may be outside of tview's scope.
# Merged pull requests
