        Seems there was an attempt to resurrect it, but the PR is still opened and never merged.
        https://github.com/adamwiggins/rush/pull/19

        Sucks for the guy who made that PR and it never got merged.
        He got his own branch that is much newer, from 2017.

        Maybe someone should rewrite it in Python. I am no fan of Ruby.

          Are you saying that it shouldn't exist only because it's not popular?

            No, I am not.
            I am just curious, if there is any distribution that ships it installed by default, or if any service provider uses it.

              The Toronto Pearson International Airport uses it.

                English is not my main language, but I feel like

                "Rush's configuration support"

                is a weird use of the possessive form, isn't it?

                    No, it's correct; it's just a bit weird to pronounce. Rush as a single program or person would be "Rush's configuration file" whereas Rush as the band would write it as "Rushs' configuration file". A singular entity has it before the s, and group entity has it after the s.

                    To add some fun confusion, there is an exception to the before and after rule if we're talking about a guy named Jimmy Schmidts where it would be "Jimmy Schmidts' configuration file". If a word ends in s but isn't referring to more than one thing, like the last name Schmidts, then the apostrophe goes after the s. A reader then has to use context clues to figure out if it refers to the entire family or just to Jimmy.

                    For even more confusing fun, using possessive forms properly is opposite when it comes to how it's and its works due to how contractions and possessions use the same symbol. Rush's file means "Rush (I) possesses this file", Rushs' file means "Rush (they) possess this file", it's means "it is", & its means "it possesses".
