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.
JBup (Java Backup) aims to become a robust, professional backup tool. It creates a mirror of the current file set and compares it to the previous version. The deltas are saved and the previous mirror is removed. By applying the increments in reverse time order, complete backups of arbitrary versions can be created. It is an Ant task and can therefore be used in Ant scripts that perform additional backup actions, such as archiving directories or sending emails.
VeriTAR [Veri(fy)TAR] is a command-line utility that verifies the MD5 sums of files within a tar archive. Due to the limitations of the tar ("ustar") format, the MD5 sums are retrieved from a separate file and are checked against the MD5 sums of the files within the tar archive. The process takes place without actually exctracting the files. It works even with corrupted tar archives. The program carries on to the next file within the archive, skipping the damaged parts. At the moment, this relies on internal functions of Python's tarfile module.
Jailer is a database subsetting and browsing tool. It is a tool for data exporting, schema browsing, and rendering. It exports consistent, referentially intact row-sets from relational databases. It removes obsolete data without violating integrity. It is DBMS agnostic (by using JDBC), platform independent, and generates DbUnit datasets, hierarchically structured XML, and topologically sorted SQL-DML.
Skwish is a fast, simple, lightweight Java library for storing blobs on the file system. It allows multiple concurrent readers and writers, provides all-or-nothing write semantics, and is designed to survive abnormal, unclean shutdown. Skwish is a structured implementation of storing all blobs in a single file to save on file system I/O. Skwish is premised on the proposition that blob storage ought to be orthogonal to the task of indexing. It is meant to be a clean and simple store on which some other index can be built.
apub is a tool to simplify uploading documents of a site to remote servers. Simply create an XML configuration file containing one or more site definitions, with the local and remote document root. After that, you can upload any file in any of your document roots with one simple command.
Associations Indexing Service (AIS) was originally done as an extension of human memory for tagging (storing under personal keywords and associations) resources, URIs, bookmarks, and memos (for fast access to the information in future) by using the same keywords or queries, similar to popular search engines. It can be seen as a local search engine, used as an automatic indexer of big file hierarchies (e.g. personal archives or files repositories). It is based on Lucene, so the application will remain very fast with any size index.
