Cinabox (Continuous Integration in a Box) automates the setup of a Continuous Integration (CI) system by doing The Simplest Thing That Could Possibly Work. It consists of two simple scripts to set up a cruisecontrolrb CI server from scratch on an Ubuntu 8.04 system: one script to bootstrap Ruby, and another script to set up CI.
Elektra is a universal hierarchical configuration store, similar to GConf and the Windows Registry. It allows programs to read and save their configurations with a consistent API, and allows them to be aware of other applications' configurations, leveraging easy application integration. While architecturally similar to other OS registries, Elektra does not have most of the problems found in those implementations. Elektra includes a library, an API, and commandline and GUI tools for administration tasks.
Mooix is a multiuser object-oriented dimension (a MOO) layered over top of your favorite Unix system. To the user, mooix looks much like any other MOO. To the programmer, mooix objects look like directories full of files: executable methods, properties, and links to other objects. MOOs have historically had poor support for such things as real programming languages, encrypted logins, multitasking, and editors. Mooix inherits all of these things from the Unix system it is based on. At the same time, it's not wedded too tightly to Unix (e.g., it implements its own permissions system that is much more suited to a MOO environment than the historical Unix system).
oVirt is a small host image that provides libvirt service and hosts virtual machines (oVirt Node) and a Web-based virtual machine management console (oVirt Server Suite). It is built using existing open source components (libvirt, kvm, collectd, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and freeIPA). Presently, the oVirt Server Suite only manages the oVirt Node, but the goal is to be able to manage other node types and hypervisors in the future.
MrTools is a suite of tools for managing large, distributed environments. It can be used to execute scripts on multiple remote hosts without prior installation, copy of a file or directory to multiple hosts as efficiently as possible in a relatively secure way, and collect a copy of a file or directory from multiple hosts.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
