The Solarpack project is a repository of 1400+ pre-compiled packages of free software for Solaris systems and a distribution of the NetBSD package collection tools (NPCT) for Solaris. The goal is to make Free & Open Source Software on Solaris just as easily available as it could be on BSD or Linux distributions.
LPMtool aims to be a complete package management and software distribution solution. It includes basic command line and PyGTK-based utilities for installing and removing packages, as well as tools to publish Web-based package repositories that use a GPG-based web-of-trust security model.
pmq is a tool to query installed Perl modules. It will find the .pm file for a given module (like which(1) for Perl) and its version number. It is robust against modules that give an error on loading or don't define a version number. pmq --all lists information on all installed modules, which is useful for checking that Perl upgrades haven't broken anything.
NSBD (Not-So-Bad Distribution) is an automated Web-based distribution system that is designed for distributing free software on the internet, where users cannot trust the network and cannot entirely trust the maintainers of software. NSBD authenticates packages with GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) or "Pretty Good(Tm) Privacy" (PGP(Tm)) digital signatures so users can be assured that packages have not been tampered with, and it limits the maintainer to only update selected files and directories on the user's computer. NSBD's focus is on security, leaving as much control as is practical in the users' hands. Network transfers are done with http or rsync.
