AutoUpdate is a Perl script which performs a task similar to Red Hat's up2date or autorpm. It can be used to automatically download and upgrade RPMs from different HTTP(S) or (S)FTP sites, while also handling dependencies. Moreover, it can also be used to keep a server with a customized (Red Hat) distribution plus all clients up to date.
CGIBurn is a Web-based front end for burning CDs. Out of the box, it knows how to copy from one data CD to another, from a directory of files onto a CD, from a CD into a directory of files, and some other, less useful options. It is designed with the goals of letting a home or office share a single CD burner between multiple users, and offloading the processing required by CD burning onto a dedicated machine.
The dump package contains both dump and restore. Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a filesystem. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups.
fistgen is the FiST language code generator, used to create stackable file systems out of templates and a high-level language. This package comes with stackable file system templates for Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. It also contains several sample file systems built using the FiST language: an encryption file system, a compression file system, and more - all of which are written as portable stackable file systems.
GTKtalog is an archiver to store a CD file tree structure. It can be used to easily browse a CD-ROM database.

The file search module can do searches on filename, foldername with name, category description, date, filesize, and content parameter. Each filetype has its own icon. It possible to use programs like tar, arj, zip, or scripts to extract information from files to include in the database. Gtktalog can mount, scan, umount, and eject a CD-ROM in the background.
