hi all,


i was wondering about the rkill development, does it have a github? is it open source? I was curious about its inner-workings and wanted to take a look at the source.


just curious


edit: i should've added that i did try and look this up myself first. when i searched rkill it took me to the download page on BP and when i searched rkill development or rkill github, no meaningful results were returned so i assumed that in addition to being the place to download rkill, that this website must have something to do, or perhaps know the dev team behind the program.

Hi drwmbt :)

The RKill thread can be found at the link below.


As for if it's open-source and/or on GitHub, I don't think so. Only Grinler works on it and updates it as far as I know.

Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above topic discussion.
