The Linux-Ecology-HOWTO discusses ways to make computers less harmful to our environment and to solve some ecological issues. It explains how to use Linux to save power and consumables like paper and ink. Since it does not require big hardware, Linux may be used with old computers to make their life cycle longer. Games may be used in environmental education and software is available to simulate ecological processes.
SiteFusion allows object-oriented PHP applications to operate as OS-native applications through a XULRunner-based thin client. The client connects to the SiteFusion daemon through an ordinary Web server, and applications run in separate continuous processes. Two-way communication is enabled, without the need for additional Web server configurations. The implementation of the XUL framework in a PHP class structure includes an implementation of the Mozilla tree view optimized for very large trees, supporting drag-and-drop, editable cells, and sorting.
exJello is a JavaMail provider that connects to a Microsoft Exchange server (actually, it uses the WebDAV interface exposed by Outlook Web Access). It is designed as a drop-in replacement for the standard POP3 and SMTP providers. This allows you to send and receive messages through your Exchange server in situations where a POP3/SMTP interface is not available (through a restrictive firewall, for example, or if your administrator simply does not provide a POP3 or SMTP gateway).
AGENCY is software that allows non-profit organizations to track data and manage operations. It is a fork and continuation of CHASERS. AGENCY aims to become a collectively-maintained and developed project that puts organizations in charge of their data systems. There are currently two “flavors” of AGENCY: one for managing clients and services, case management, and such (think “social service”); and one for managing donations and volunteers (think “fundraising”). Features include a report generator, permissions and access control, the ability to merge reports to OpenOffice documents, a log system, and real-time alerts with email notification. In the client version, many tables and data structures are already set up for organizations doing human service, homeless services, or HMIS. The donor version is set up to track donors, addresses, gifts (cash and inkind), flags, volunteers, volunteer activities, and more.
