Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
py-setproctitle is a library that allows a Python process to change its title, as displayed by system tools such as ps and top. Changing the title is useful in multi-process systems, for example when a master process is forked: changing the child's title allows you to identify the task each process is busy with. It is based on PostgreSQL's multi-platform implementation.

The psycogreen package makes it possible for psycopg2 to work with coroutine libraries, using asynchronous calls internally but offering a blocking interface so that regular code can run unmodified. While Psycopg offers coroutine support, the main module is a C extension that cannot be monkey-patched to become coroutine-friendly. Instead it exposes a hook that coroutine libraries can use to install a function integrating with their event scheduler. Psycopg will call the function whenever it executes a libpq call that may block. psycogreen is a collection of "wait callbacks" that can be used to integrate Psycopg with different coroutine libraries. psycogreen is currently mainly useful for integration with gevent.
ssh-ident allows you to have a single line in your .bashrc, then let it take care of loading ssh-agents when first needed, load all the necessary keys, and share ssh-agents across login consoles. If you have multiple identities for the same account, it is able to load different keys depending on the host you connect to or the path you are working from. At the same time, it keeps the ssh-agents separated and forwards only the keys which are needed for the specific host. It also allows you to specify ssh-add options, so you can automatically lock keys which are unused for a certain time, or have a confirmation request every time a specific key is used.
BurnerOnFire is a multi-threaded program that can write the same content to multiple CD/DVD burners simultaneously. It is currently developed and tested only on Debian and only supports content in the form of ISO files. It uses D-Bus/HAL specification to interact with hardware. It spawns subprocesses that wrap around the command line program Wodim. BurnerOnFire has both CLI and GUI (GTK+) interfaces.
Django REST framework is a lightweight REST framework for Django that aims to make it easy to build well-connected, self-describing RESTful Web APIs. It creates self-documenting Web APIs that include a Django admin style frontend. It has a modular, flexible architecture using Django's class based views. API creation can be as simple as adding a couple of lines to urls.py.
