CDimg|tools is a set of commandline tools to inspect and manipulate CD/DVD optical disc images in formats uncommon on free Unix-like systems (like GNU/Linux or BSD). It makes it possible to convert .NRG Nero images, to demultiplex RAW+96 image files containing both stream data and sub-channel data, to decrypt CSS-scrambled VOB files, and to decrypt CSS-scrambled DVD Video image files.
Midao is a framework that was created to simplify development with JDBC. It shields developers from the nuances of vendor JDBC implementations and provides standard JDBC boilerplate code. It is flexible, customizable, and simple and intuitive to use, and provides a lot of functionality: transactions, metadata, type handling, profiling, input/output processing/converting, pooled datasource library support, named parameters, multiple vendor support out of the box, custom exception handling, and overrides. With a single Jar, it supports both JDBC 3.0 (Java 5) and JDBC 4.0 (Java 6). It is well tested, with over 500 unit and functional tests, and is also tested with the latest drivers for Derby, MySQL (MariaDB), PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL.
kvm-simple-init can perform the following actions on a KVM machine: start, stop, kill, and restart. It focuses on simplicity, and is fully implemented in just a few hundred lines of shell script. It is intended for people who do not want to run libvirt just for running a few VMs, or people who prefer to manage flat configuration files using their preferred configuration management system. It does not provide complicated configuration file format or parameters. Only two pieces of information are needed: a QEMU monitor port for the machine and the full KVM command line needed to start the machine (gives full configuration freedom). kvm-simple-init can be used directly as a system init script for starting all KVM machines on a host machine. Just drop it in /etc/init.d, and enable it with the tools provided by your UNIX distribution. kvm-simple-init was inspired by the init script of FreeBSD jails.
gnhast is a collection of daemons that work together to build an event-based home automation system. Any event (such as a light being turned on) can be handled by an external script or program. These programs can be written in any language, and the central daemon handles all the intercommunication. It is designed to be easily extensible for new device types and protocols.
The Assimilation Monitoring Project is a highly scalable discovery-driven monitoring system. It integrates continuous discovery of servers, services, service dependencies, switch connections, and lots of other things into the monitoring process. The discovery is "stealthy" and will never set off any network security alarms. Adding servers doesn't measurably increase monitoring load, and the system is expected to easily scale into the 100K server range. The discovery work is distributed among all the nanoprobes (agents), which run scripts that spit out JSON. The central system (CMA) stores these strings and runs optional plugins to create graph nodes.
