fileq transfers files from an incoming queue (directory) to a list of destinations. Destinations can only be directories on remote hosts. The respective transfers are performed using the sftp command line utility from the OpenSSH package. After a successful transfer to all destinations, the local queue (directory) is emptied. This tool can be very handy for automated distribution of files to different hosts using a cron job and public key based authentication in ssh connections.
Sharehound is a network file systems indexer and Google-like searcher written in Java and based on Apache Lucene.

libpdtp is a client library for the Peer Distributed Transfer Protocol, which provides BitTorrent-like content distribution through a peer network while allowing servers or server clusters to export a dynamically changing directory hierarchy, making PDTP suitable for roles currently filled by HTTP or FTP servers. It is designed to be equally as usable in single-threaded CLI applications or multi-threaded GUI applications.
