PySamba is a Python library that provides a full wrapper for the Samba CLI library provided with samba-3.0.24. It includes a Python module that hides the complexity of the lower layer (SMB), providing high-level commands like Mkdir or DiskAvail. PySamba allows the developer to interface to any samba-capable device much like Python's ftplib does.
The dsnapshot script provides a high-level interface to the Linux Logical Volume Manager. It uses its block-level snapshot support to create directory snapshots. In contrast to block-level snapshots, directory snapshots resemble the file system layer. Thus, you can snapshot any directory that is on a logical volume without worrying about the actual logical volumes, mount points, and paths.
mmounter tries to mimic the behaviour of MacOS with regards to automatic monitoring and mounting of the volumes in your system (CDs, ZIP disks, floppies, HDs) using their volume name as the mount point. It will optionally eject devices and let users mount/umount them. Currently mmounter supports ext2, ext3, iso9660 (CD), HFS, and VFAT. This tool is user-space only (doesn't require any kernel patching) and should be fairly portable.
MediaSort is a tool that automatically renames media files with metadata attributes. For example, you can sort your pictures by date, camera model, or other EXIF attributes, and your MP3s by author, album, or other ID3 tag values. MediaSort is also a "sorting" Ant FileMapper that can be used with any other Ant tasks to achieve more complex work.
