ILISP is a package that is designed to integrate various Lisp implementations (mostly Common Lisp systems and various Scheme dialects, including Guile) within Emacs (or XEmacs). ILISP runs an inferior Lisp process (in Emacs parlance) and provides a specialized set of commands, key bindings, and menus to ease the interaction with it. ILISP commands access the underlying Lisp process and provide ways to make the editing, compilation, and execution of Lisp programs much easier.
HO-CVS is a version control system based on MetaCVS. In addition to the features of MetaCVS, it features module level versioning, the ability to reference every version (since there is a tag after every commit, which is extremely useful but slow), complex versions like #v1.2.3 designed to carry information about the change, operation hooks, and a somewhat powerful log command.
CoMa provides a uniform configuration mechanism for items. CoMa is similar to autoconf, but without the auto part. It is intended to be used in component-based development where different software pieces are used in the context of more than one application or version of the same application. It provides a way to configure items and query or validate their configuration. At present, it works best with HO-CVS, but it can still work with pure CVS, albeit with some loss of convenience.
Common Lisp Quick Reference is a booklet with short descriptions of the thousand or so symbols defined in the ANSI standard. It comes with a comprehensive index. It is written in LaTeX and formatted for printing on both A4 and letter paper. After folding the sheets lengthwise, they can easily be turned into a handy booklet.
Phoros is a Web-based tool for photogrammetric road survey. Storage locations of images and GPS data acquired by a measuring vehicle are stored by Phoros into a PostgreSQL database. Images and a map are then presented on Phoros' Web interface. There, a user can determine and store global coordinates of features shown in the images.
QueryFS is a FUSE-based virtual filesystem that is based on queries. There are plugins to parse various query syntaxes and each query creates a virtual directory. Currently the most elaborate query language is SQL-based; you can either provide access to data stored in an SQL database, or keep an index of files in the SQL database and generate search directories with symlinks to found files. QueryFS and its SQL2 query DSL fully support creation of refinable searches: for example, the author has an index of downloaded email files; one can see all the distinct senders registered in the DB and then go into a directory of one sender and see all accounts that ever received an email from this sender.
otl is a text processor for generating markup from readable lightweight markup. Much of both the input and output formats can be customized. HTML output is bundled as an example. otl supports complex structures such as nested ordered and unordered lists, headers and footers, and tables.
