Shasplit takes a large data block, splits it into smaller parts, and puts those parts into an SHA-based content-addressed store. Reassembling those parts is a trivial "cat" invocation. Repeating parts (e.g., from previous split operations) are stored only once, which allows efficient incremental backups of whole LVM snapshots via Rsync. Shasplit shows its strengths on encrypted block devices, but might be useful for non-encrypted data, too.
LiPPGen, the Literate-Programming-based Presentation Generator, takes a standard Literate Program (with LaTeX as the documentation language) as input and lets the instructor comfortably generate presentation slides for each code chunk. It then assembles the provided slide texts and the code chunks and turns them into a browser-based presentation. The presentations feature scrollable code chunk listings, primitive syntax highlighting, and line breaking within listings. LiPPGen expects the source file to be formatted in noweb's Literate Programming style.
Attic is a deduplicating backup program. The main goal of attic is to provide an efficient and secure way to back up data. The data deduplication technique used makes Attic suitable for daily backups since only actual changes are stored. Main features: space efficient storage, optional data encryption, and off-site backups.
PyAnnolib is a library that lets your Python programs read Electric Accelerator (emake) annotation files. Electric Accelerator is a build tool product from Electric Cloud. Annotation files give a very detailed description of the jobs that were run during the build, including the complete dependency graph. This library is useful for writing reports about your build, data-mining the annotation file for the complete and accurate dependency graph, etc.
