NOTE: cpulimit hasn't been developed for quite some time. Please take a look at this fork (limitcpu) which is used by multiple major Linux distributions and at least one BSD, is compatible with this one, and keeps getting updated to this day.

Debian (along with its derivatives), OpenSUSE, FreeBSD, maybe others have been using this fork, which is actively developed, but it's already packaged on the AUR.

Fedora, Alpine, and this package are using the original upstream.

Most users would probably be better served by limitcpu. I would add a postinstall message if it didn't cause a pointless upgrade for existing users.

There’s a 0.3.2 release from https://github.com/denji/cpulimit/releases – I don’t know if this is the "official" fork of the project or not, but AFAICT at a brief glance, it’s the only fork that has done any releases. It hasn’t received commits for 5 years though and it doesn’t seem like https://github.com/HiGarfield/cpulimit has incorporated the changes/commits from that fork at this point.
