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.
Xfiles is an interactive utility for comparing and merging one file tree with another over a network. It supports freeform work on several machines (no need to keep track of what files are changed on which machine). Xfiles can also be used as a cross-validating disk<->disk backup strategy.
BundleMan manages the releases of an application built on versioned products under Subversion. An application is seen as a product suite defined using the Subversion svn:externals property. An application is a bundle of products. Products are versioned pieces of software. Releasing an application is about taking care of tagging the source repository, managing the version of each products, managing CHANGELOGs, creating a source package archive, and giving ways to maintain a release without blocking the trunk development.
fs2svn takes a sequence of archive folders (snapshots or historical backups of a project) and makes a new Subversion repository, preserving their revision history. Each top-level folder creates one revision, which is backdated to its most recent file's modification date. Additions, changes, and deletions between one folder and the next are all recorded in the repository, and the efficient diff-based storage saves disk space over the original full or incremental backups.
