CElect is a console-based tool for determining a social preference ordering, such as an elected candidate or choice in a single-winner election, or the preferred composition of a multi-member council, based on a list of individual preference orderings (ballots) over the candidates or choices. It can also calculate the winner and social ordering when given a Condorcet matrix and list of candidates, though it is in that case limited to Condorcet methods. Of single-winner methods, it supports Dodgson, Simpson, Tideman/wv, first and second-order Copeland, and Schulze (all Condorcet methods), and FPTP, Borda, 1/n Borda, Hare, Nanson, and 1/n Nanson. Of proportional representation, it supports CPO-STV, CFPRM, and D'Hondt without lists.
File Selection Language is a descriptive language for file selection. It is used to selectively pick files from a directory structure. FSL uses glob patterns as the basic building block. For fine-tuning the selection, inclusion and exclusion rule combinations and conditional expressions are available. File size and modification date can be used in expressions.
The Magnification Composite Manager (MCM) is a screen magnifier that enlarges all or a portion of the screen for visually-impaired users of the Gnome desktop. The magnifier manages off-screen copies of all the windows on the desktop; it zooms them and places them back on top of the desktop screen. It is a composite manager because it uses the new Composite extension of the X Window System display.
