MDS (Mandriva Directory Server), along with the Mandriva Management Console (MMC), is a powerful system that allows developers, system administrators, and other software vendors to manage users, groups, and their associated policies in both OpenLDAP server and Fedora Directory Server which allows multi-master replication. Its highly ergonomic interface design makes it very easy to use, and delegation of administration enables medium size organization to adopt MDS.
Arronax is a plugin for Nautilus (the GNOME default file manager) to create and modify application starters (".desktop files"). It adds the menu item "Create starter for this file" to the context menu (the menu you get when you right-click a file in the file manager). If the file is an application starter, you get the item “Modify this starter” instead. If you have icons enabled on your desktop, Arronax adds the menu item “Create starter” to your desktop’s context menu.
Basenji is an indexing and search tool designed for easy and fast indexing of media collections.

SciDAVis is an interactive application aimed at data analysis and publication-quality plotting. It combines a shallow learning curve and an intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface with powerful features such as scriptability and extensibility. It is similar in its field of application to proprietary Windows applications like Origin and SigmaPlot, as well as free applications like QtiPlot, Labplot, and Gnuplot. What sets SciDAVis apart from the above is its emphasis on providing a friendly and open environment (in the software as well as the project) for new and experienced users alike, and particularly in providing good documentation on all levels.

FusionForge is a collaborative development environment that gathers in one single place several tools useful for development teams: communication tools (forums, mailing-lists, news, etc.); development tools (bug/patch trackers, project management, source control systems, etc.); and community tools (file releases, software categorization, Web site hosting, etc.). It is the continuation of the free software version of GForge, based on the codebase that was maintained in parallel to the proprietary GForge AS version.
