Running sccs2rcs in a directory with an SCCS subdirectory will convert all the SCCS files to corresponding RCS master files in a new RCS directory; the SCCS data itself is accessed read-only. It will complain and terminate if any of the SCCS files are checked out, or if the RCS directory already exists and is non-empty. If the directory contains snapshot auxiliary data produced by Emacs VC mode for tagging, that will be used too.
TeachToPod is a set of shell scripts for ripping DVDs from The Teaching Company to produce either video files (m4v) or audio files (mp3) for playback on an iPod. Metadata such as lecture titles are automatically scraped from the Web and added to the output files. Operation of the scripts is almost automatic, and from the operator's viewpoint requires merely physical insertion and removal of the DVDs. Presently, the scripts are optimized for iPod Classic and have only been tested on Ubuntu 10.10.
Phreebird is a DNSSEC proxy that operates in front of an existing DNS server (such as BIND, Unbound, PowerDNS, Microsoft DNS, or QIP) and supplements its records with DNSSEC responses. Features of Phreebird include automatic key generation, realtime record signing, support for arbitrary responses, zero configuration, NSEC3 "White Lies", caching and rate limiting to deter DoS attacks, and experimental support for both Coarse Time over DNS and HTTP Virtual Channels. The suite also contains a large amount of sample code, including support for federated identity over OpenSSH. Finally, "Phreeload" enhances existing OpenSSL applications with DNSSEC support.
bmake is a program designed to simplify the maintenance of other programs. Its input is a list of specifications as to the files upon which programs and other files depend. If no -f makefile makefile option is given, bmake will try to open 'makefile' and then 'Makefile' in order to find the specifications.
SvOlli's Little Audio Related Thingies, or SLART for short, is a compilation of rather simple programs that are related to audio files: it consists of a player (Partyman), a CD ripper, a tag editor, and some other tools. These programs can communicate with each other via a custom IPC bus, so a newly ripped track can be automatically queued in the player, for example.
