nss-myhostname is a GNU libc NSS module that statically translates the local host name to the IP address 127.0.0.2 (which is on the loopback device) and vice versa. This is useful to make sure that the local host name is always resolvable. Some programs (such as sudo) require this functionality.
Galet is a peer-to-peer application which primarily aims to provide easy-to-setup, secure communication channels between the computers of people who know and trust each other. Its secondary goal is to create a public network based on these channels. No direct connections occur between two nodes that have not been explicitly accepted by the users of these nodes. This makes the network very difficult to censor, as an attacker's direct access to the network is limited.
