Anti-Spam Agent for Novell NetMail is a replacement for SpamAssassin's spamd. It will tell the NetMail server to send all new email to it for spam checking. If SpamAssassin determines that the email is spam, you can either have it deleted, or have "X-Spam-Flag: YES" added to the message header. This project also includes assistance for others to write their own NetMail agents.
Anti-censorship tools (proxyTools) consists of a huge Perl application (localProxy) and a set of tools to analyze the user's network (proxies, firewall rules, name servers, etc.). LocalProxy abstracts external services in an uncensored, reliable, fast manner to the localhost, where they may be used by standard clients (Web browsers, Usenet news clients, SOCKS-capable clients, etc.). Various combinations of strategies are tried to ensure the non-censored nature of the information, and multiple, parallel services (e.g. HTTP proxies) are used to ensure reliability and speed. The tools are capable of automating collection of the data required for localProxy. LocalProxy builds a configuration for the user and dynamically adjusts to using the fastest strategies and proxies available to it. The tools are useful for network analysis (firewall rules, proxy capabilities, etc.) independently of localProxy.
The Atropos (formerly AVNMP) Toolkit allows experimentation with predictive capability inside a network while the network is operating: this might be best described as 'in vitro' prediction experimentation. Its purpose is to facilitate experimentation towards addressing a severe limitation in state-of-the-art network management: current management techniques are reactive. The toolkit is an active application that executes in real time within a network that has an overlay active network. Active networking provides a framework in which executable code within data packets executes upon intermediate network nodes. The Atropos Toolkit provides the infrastructure to develop and inject numerous, small, interacting network component models in support of network prediction. Research results in Complexity Theory using Atropos can be found in the DARPA-funded GE Fault Tolerant Networking Project.
CleanPOP cleans your POP3 mailbox based on your local mbox, so local anti-spam tools can be applied to Web-mail and other non-local clients. After you've downloaded and processed mail from the POP server, CleanPOP logs in and purges email messages which match locally-added spam headers or are older than a configured expiration time. It aims to be safe by not deleting unfetched emails (unlike other email filters), and efficient by checking only new messages. It's also useful for fetchmail users, who have no option to "delete after X days".
ColdSync is a portable synchronization tool for Palm devices (PalmPilot, Handspring Visor, etc.) that runs under *BSD, Solaris, Digital Unix/Tru64, Linux, AIX, and Windows NT. It supports PalmOS 2.0 (original PalmPilot) and later. It is only known to support Visor syncing under FreeBSD and Linux, however. It supports IR syncing under Linux. ColdSync can back up, restore, install, and synchronize database, and can be extended and customized through the use of conduits. ColdSync is rather paranoid and takes pains not to delete anything it isn't 100% sure about.
