universal-ctags has the objective of continuing the development from what existed in the Sourceforge area. Github exuberant-ctags repository was started by Reza Jelveh and was later moved to the universal-ctags organization.
The goal of the project is preparing and maintaining common/unified working space where people interested in making ctags better can work together.
