MirrorBrain is a framework to run a content delivery network using mirror servers. It solves a challenge that many popular open source projects face: a flood of download requests, often magnitudes more than a single site could practically handle. A central (and probably the most obvious) part is a "download redirector" that automatically redirects requests from Web browsers or download programs to a mirror server near them. Choosing a suitable mirror for a user's request is the key, and MirrorBrain uses geolocation and global routing data to make a sensible choice and achieve load-balancing for the mirrors at the same time. The algorithm is both sophisticated and easy to control and tune. In addition, MirrorBrain monitors mirrors, scans them for files, generates mirror lists, and more.
Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.
Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements normally aggregated in different files, including users, cron jobs, and hosts, along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files. Its simple declarative specification language provides powerful classing abilities for drawing out the similarities between hosts while allowing them to be as specific as necessary, and it handles dependency and prerequisite relationships between objects clearly and explicitly.
The svnmailer is a tool that is usually called by a subversion hook to submit commit notifications in various ways (at the moment: mail via SMTP or a pipe to a sendmail like program, news via NNTP, or CIA live tracker notification via XML-RPC). It is derived from the original mailer.py distributed with subversion, but should be much more consistent, more extensible, and have many more features.
UIMA SDK is a software architecture and framework for supporting the development, integration, and deployment of search and analysis technologies. It can be used to analyze large volumes of unstructured information (text, audio, video, images, etc.) to discover, organize, and deliver relevant knowledge to the client or application end user.
Chandler is a standards-based "Note-to-Self Organizer" designed for personal and small-group task management and calendaring. It consists of a desktop application and Chandler Hub, a free sharing service and Web application. You can also download and run your own Chandler Server.
