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.
MultiLoad is a load balancer that redirects HTTP requests to pre-defined servers/locations. It gives the provider a way to balance the traffic and hides the real download location. It allows you to manage different version of each download. It is also a load balancing server extension. You can distribute files on some servers so that a downloaded file can be loaded form different servers. These servers can have different priorities to control the active traffic.
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.
ECMerge compares and merges files and folders, side-by-side or 3-way. It provides syntax coloring for C/C++, Java, HTML, ASP, PHP, and many other programming languages. It can save your work at an intermediate state and restart it later. It can generate Unix patches and XML/HTML reports between files. A shell extension is provided under Windows. PDF, Word, and ZIP documents can be compared using converters.
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.
stableUpdate is an autoupdate tool for creating, detecting, downloading, installing, and removing service packs for JAR-based Java applications. Generated updates are transferred in archives, upgrading between subsequent versions. An update contains changed single files and changed parts of JAR and ZIP files. It supports mirrors, release notes, and uninstallation of updates.
ZFolder2Product takes the contents of a Zope folder and creates a custom Zope Product, which then re-creates the entire folder contents when installed. The advantage of using ZFolder2Product over a normal Zope exportation is that the folder contents are saved in external files usable within a version control system like CVS. After re-importing the files, you can edit them using the Zope Management Interface and export them back to the filesystem.
