pkgmake automates some steps when making software releases. It creates a copy of the development tree, optionally cleans it up a bit (i.e. removes CVS/* and .svn/*), tars it, places the tarball in the SOURCES/ directory, creates the corresponding .spec file from a provided template (and the data specified in the configuration/on the command line), and runs rpmbuild and/or debbuild as well as spec2arch. As a result, you will have packages for Debian and RPM based distributions as well as the PKGBUILD file for ArchLinux. Using relman as the recommended frontend to pkgmake, new software releases are as easy as calling relman with two parameters: the project name plus the release version - and all packages are made and distributed.
Thunderbolt is a middleware infrastructure suite that includes connectors, Java development libraries, a business process design GUI, and a system monitor GUI. It is appropriate for both telco and financial services. It provides the basis for a simple, efficient integration infrastructure which can be easily extended. While maintaining a SOA in mind, it can easily orchestrate Web services and legacy systems. It's also useful for developing proof of concept projects requiring processing in real time, batch, or both.
Decorum is a simple dependency extension for Ant. It can construct class paths using a simple list of dependencies. It matches jars to the required version (eg "any", "1.0", "1.2.3+"), and it can build the dependencies if no jar is present. It is intended to be a light-weight alternative to Maven, Ivy, and Antlion.
autogen.sh (a.k.a. buildconf) provides automatic build system preparation and is generally very useful to projects that use the GNU build system (i.e. the GNU autotools: autoconf, automake, and libtool). It is a POSIX shell script that is used for preparing a build system for compilation, verifying versions, ensuring necessary functionality, and overcoming many common build preparation issues.
cygbuild is a porting tool for making Cygwin net releases. It helps Cygwin source and binary package maintainers to configure, build, strip, produce diffs, and generate Cygwin specific files. To put it simply, it converts any freely available program or package into a complete Cygwin net release distribution.
