Twapake is a system administration utility for Slackware and Slackware-based operating systems only, making it easier to manage last installed packages and see the installation date of a package. It can print a simple list of N packages sorted by installed date to STDOUT. It can print a snapshot logfile to the /var/log/twapake/ directory. A snapshot is a list of all packages sorted by installed date at T time. The installed date is printed too, making it easier to see when a package has been installed on your system. You can remove the last N installed packages, print the packages installed since a chosen date, and launch a Curses User Interface for easy removal.
Release Notes: This release adds a --nlpkg (-n) option to use with -i to specify how many last packages have to be printed to STDOUT. It changes the output format of the twapake snapshot to be more human readable.
LogAnalyzer is a Web front-end for syslog and other network event data. It provides easy browsing, searching, basic analysis, and some graphics.

Depending on the log data present, it can process syslog messages, Windows event log entries, and some more exotic things. Its troubleshooting support enables users to quickly find solutions to problems seen in the log data. LogAnalyzer was previously called phpLogCon, and has been renamed since v3.

Patchutils contains a collection of tools for manipulating patch files: interdiff, combinediff, flipdiff, filterdiff, fixcvsdiff, rediff, lsdiff, grepdiff, splitdiff, recountdiff, and unwrapdiff. You can use interdiff to create an incremental patch between two patches that are against a common source tree, combinediff for creating a cumulative diff from two incremental patches, and flipdiff to transpose two incremental patches. Filterdiff is for extracting or excluding patches from a patch set based on modified files matching shell wildcards. Lsdiff lists modified files in a patch. Rediff, recountdiff, and unwrapdiff correct hand-edited (or otherwise broken) patches.
Release Notes: Interdiff had previously been putting absolute filenames in the input to the patch program. It now avoids doing this. Editdiff no longer runs rediff when no changes were made in the editor. The correct exit status is now set when the decompress option fails. A temporary file leak has been fixed. The documentation has been updated.

reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS.
