novi is a tool for finding the latest-version RPMs in a tree. It can be used to create Kickstart trees or yum repositories that contain the updated RPMS. In the case of Kickstart, this means machines come to life with the updates already applied. Using novi for a yum repository trims the size of the repodata files, which reduces client download and processing time.
cintoo Messages is a framework to make internationalization easier for Java applications. It supports locales for threads, and bundles can be associated with different packages. This allows the usage of different bundles for different parts of the application, such as plugins, an installer, or a logging system. Bundles can be managed and associated with packages without any changes in the code. This makes bundle management and refactoring much easier than with other solutions. cintoo Messages supports global locales for client applications written in Swing or SWT and thread-local ones for serverside Web applications.
Auth MemCookie is an Apache v2 authentication and authorization module based on a cookie authentication mechanism. The module doesn't do authentication by itself, but verifies if the cookie used for authentication is valid for each URL protected by the module. The module also validates whether the authenticated user has authorization to access the URL. Authentication is done externally through an authentication form page, and all authentication information necessary to the module is a stored in memcached.
Extended Virtual Synchrony for Java is a pure Java implementation of the totem single-ring protocol, which provides process group membership and reliable multicast with totally ordered messages. Because of its token-based design, this protocol is unique in achieving effective flow control, and is ideal for implementing replication in small clusters.
mod-vhost-ldap is an Apache 2.x module for storing and configuring virtual hosts from LDAP. It supports DocumentRoot, ScriptAlias, ServerName, ServerAlias, ServerAdmin, and SuexecUserGroup directives. It's built on top of mod_ldap, so it uses its caching capabilities and can be used with a threaded Apache httpd.
mod_athena is an Apache-based application load balancer for large systems. It allows the HTTP server to act as a load balancer either internally to Apache's own mod_proxy (for reverse proxying), or externally to machines querying it. Arbitrary statistics are sent to the engine via a simple GET plus query-string interface, from which it will then make decisions based on chosen algorithms.
