pyBit uses AMQP to create a distributed, cross-platform buildd toolkit to build packages using a collection of buildds, direct from various VCS clients. It is intended to support rapidly evolving software collections, and can support multiple VCS frontends and multiple build backends. Cross building is expected to be supported for some backends. The initial backend uses dpkg for Debian. pyBit includes support for cancelling selected builds and using multiple buildd clients per architecture, per platform, and per suite.
sdb is a really simple program to benchmark disks. It only writes/reads data sequentially to/from a file and calculates the performance of this action. A memory buffer is used for input/output to get values close to the real performance of the disk or RAID system. You can use flags like O_DIRECT and O_SYNC to avoid buffering by the operating system. It is similar to dd, but there are some differences, since dd was not created for benchmarking a disk. It is possible to initialize the buffer with random values before writing them to the disk or a file on the disk. It is a simple but effective program to get the maximum speed of a disk. Due to the simplicity, you will get the results much faster than with a more complex benchmark.
OpenHIM is a health information mediator that aims to enable easier interoperability between disparate health information systems. It was developed as the Rwandan reference implementation of a health information exchange for maternal health, and is intended for use in low resource settings.
White Elephant was created due to lack of line testing software like MonkeyJam for Linux. There are some animation programs for Linux, but the author needed more drawing options like in an image editor. The intended purpose is to test animations drawn in image editors like MyPaint and Gimp. These two programs have some plugins or hacks to work with animations, but they use layers as frames, and they don't have a real layer system to work with. That's where White Elephant comes in.
Shelk-test is a program for creating tests for students. Tests take up just three modules: creation, testing, and reporting. Shelk-test can insert images into all types of questions, making it possible to create a question such as "What is shown in the picture?" All tests are stored centrally in a SQLite database, increasing reliability and allowing you to have a database file without having to install a database server.
Seafile is a file synchronization and collaboration platform. It comes with Dropbox-like file syncing, but is designed to be better suited to teamwork. You can build a file syncing and collaboration service for your team on your servers. It can also be used to build your own Dropbox for personal use.
