Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
The Enhanced TightVNC Viewer, SSVNC, adds encryption security to VNC connections. The package provides a GUI for Windows, MacOS X, and Unix that automatically starts up an STUNNEL SSL tunnel for SSL or ssh/plink for SSH connections to any VNC server and then launches the VNC Viewer to use the encrypted tunnel. On Unix and MacOS X, a VNC viewer with many new features is provided. The short name for this project is "ssvnc", for SSL/SSH VNC viewer.
cygbuild is a porting tool for making Cygwin net releases. It helps Cygwin source and binary package maintainers to configure, build, strip, produce diffs, and generate Cygwin specific files. To put it simply, it converts any freely available program or package into a complete Cygwin net release distribution.
Perl text2html is an HTML 4.01/CSS2 project that converts pure plain text files into very informative and professional looking HTML documentation pages. The text files require no markup whatsoever; just naturally written text. This utility predates the now similar Python-based asciidoc.
genpuppet is a script to automatically generate a puppet manifest based on a series of user inputs. Think of it as a kernel "make config" for puppet. With genpuppet, the most frequently used resources are prompted for so one can quickly generate a working manifest without having to concentrate on syntax and spacing.
If you're a developer of multiple projects, you'll find yourself needing to switch between multiple different version control systems. After working in one (e.g. SVN) for an hour, you may need to switch to a different one (e.g. git). Getting your fingers to switch is the difficult part, or remembering the right command line flags to use for the given tool. That's where The One Ring comes in: it provides a constant interface to all the version control systems, and your fingers only need to remember a single command regardless of what checkout directory your shell is sitting in.
perl-depends is a tool that roughly determines the modules a Perl program uses. Perl evaluates "use" commands at compile time and stores the loaded module information into the %INC variable. By examining the loaded modules and comparing them against the standard Perl modules, the external module dependencies can be roughly estimated.
