Many distributions have faced challenges with fortune-mod due to concerns about its maintainer and the presence of contentious fortunes in its data files. Instead of trying to replace fortune-mod or recreate a historically accurate fortune program, our goal is to serve those who value handpicked, randomly generated fortunes.

Fortune Acceptance Process

We manually integrate fortunes from fortune-mod, moving them from the oldtunes directory to the fortunes directory. Each fortune undergoes a rigorous manual verification process. While the selection criteria can be a topic of discussion, the final say rests with cafkafk's judgment.
