Maximus is a module manager for BlitzMax. Maximus is made out of two parts. The first is a Web application that provides a place to host BlitzMax modules. A Web site made with this application is responsible for supplying module packages to the Maximus client. The client is used to install and manage installed modules on your computer.
pacmoon is a tool for compiling Arch Linux packages using custom make flags from /etc/makepkg.conf. It keeps track of which files have been compiled so that in the event of compiled packages getting replaced with a binary (like during an upgrade process), pacmoon can recompile only the necessary packages.
pg-python provides access to Python from PostgreSQL. It contrasts with the built-in procedural language by interfacing with PostgreSQL types rather than converting them. This allows large instances of data types to be handled with greater efficiency while also allowing reasonable support for arbitrary data types without the need for a specialized implementation. Procedures are managed as entire modules so that initialization can be performed naturally by a stored procedure (each PostgreSQL function has a "main" entry point). Import statements may exist in a more natural position, and the "main" entry point may be decorated.
Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.
