About the name sourcefu

gongfu

“fu” is short for the Chinese word gōngfu (功夫) which means “any study, learning, or practice that requires patience, energy, and time to complete.”

“-fu” appears in The Jargon File as “expert practice of a skill” but in “sourcefu” the hypen was removed to keep it short. :)
