Vamos project allows computers to run software directly from the network, without installations. The software is stored on servers and is centrally maintained without the user's effort or attention. The user just needs to run applications, and the necessary bits are streamed automatically to its computer. The execution of the software is local, allowing high responsiveness and distributed computational load.
FREP is an application which can be used to keep files in a cluster of servers synchronized from a centralized location. Under the hood, it uses the Spread toolkit (broadcast/multicast traffic), libevent/epoll, sendfile, inotify, intelligent file transfers using the generic diff format, and zlib compression.
Devalot is a social networking application centered around software projects. It connects the user community with the development community and encourages participation and communication. It includes all the features you've come to expect in modern Web-based applications such as tagging, comments, and a wiki, as well as features you'd expect in project tracking software such as ticketing. It has features similar to some of those found in Trac, Collaboa, GForge, Mephisto, and Typo.
PHP Tarbackup is a simple class that allows backing up an entire Web site. It automatically works around timeout limits by splitting the job into multiple requests, allows tarball archive creation and updates, and comes with the Veloce script, which is very useful to automatically unpack tar.gz archives remotely and skip long waiting times due to FTP uploads.
W-Packager is a packager similar to dpkg that can be used by anyone to create and maintain Debian packages under Linux or other Unix systems. The aim of the project is primarily to have a workable version of a packager that can be compiled on many systems, including those that do not support fork(). At this time, W-Packager is used within UniGW. It can also be used under Linux.
CLU is an installation, removal, and upgrade management tool written for speed, size, and power. It utilizes LibAST to provide an object-oriented interface for abstracting package managers, packages, package groups, and repositories. The current implementation focuses on RPM, but additional formats can be added.
moap is a Swiss army knife for project maintainers and developers. It aims to help in keeping you in the flow of maintaining, developing, and releasing. It automates whatever tasks can be automated. It allows you to parse DOAP files and submit releases, send release mails, create iCal files and RSS feeds, maintain version control ignore lists, check in based on the latest ChangeLog entry, and more.
glucopy-glurestore is a set of scripts for copying and restoring a fully functional GNU/Linux (or other Unix-like) system. The glucopy script will back up all system content (system and user files), while the glurestore script will partition and format an identical system, restore the system and user files, and make the system bootable. The scripts are included in the HTML documentation.
