Sencap is a simple ENCAP software manager. Encapping is a method of installing software from source tarballs into private trees (bin, lib, man, share) and symlinking them to the system tree (e.g. /usr/local). Uninstallation of encapped software is quick, reliable and easy. Encapping is best used to augment the default package manager, not to replace it.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
OTRS is a platform independent Web-based help desk system that supports service organization of any kind (e.g. IT service, customer and technical product service, complaint management, public services, etc.) to increase their efficiency. It increases transparency as well as service quality and lowers your total cost of ownership. It has been certified ITIL V3 compatible by PinkVERIFY for incident, problem, change, service asset and configuration, request fulfillment, and knowledge management. Other ITIL processes like service catalog and service level management are supported as well.
Scylla Charybdis lets you get a data odyssey done with the help of two small monsters. It's easy to use, utilizes SSL (encryption), LIBZ (compression), and simple password protection. A builtin timeout detects link breaks (for dialups) such that an uploads can be automatically continued from where it broke (within a file). MD5 sums detect if files are successfully transferred. In case of data changes the destination is renamed and not overwritten (backup history). Data throttling can prevent the transfer from using up full link speed, such that a background upload does not disturb your SSH sessions (like SCP does).
