    To point out the bleeding obvious, it's not necessarily about the subject matter changing, but the technical environment. Systems change, libraries change with them, leading to potential compilation issues amongst other things.

    A quick search on Github reveals troglobit/netcalc[1] as maintained clone of sipcalc.
