It includes a set of control and dispatch tools for configuring and booting with colorized interactive scripts.

gnome-yum is a graphical program which makes it easier to use and setup the YUM install program. It displays the packages available on the package service sites with filtering. The settings for package services may be managed. The cache used by YUM can be managed to free up disk space, manually install, and transfer downloaded packages. Detailed information is displayed regarding the installed packages or package files. The files in the packages can be displayed with a program chosen by the user.
novi is a tool for finding the latest-version RPMs in a tree. It can be used to create Kickstart trees or yum repositories that contain the updated RPMS. In the case of Kickstart, this means machines come to life with the updates already applied. Using novi for a yum repository trims the size of the repodata files, which reduces client download and processing time.
OpenVPS is a set of software built on top of the Linux VServer aimed specifically at Web Hosting. It is not another set of kernel patches, but a set of scripts to create virtual servers, collect resource utilization information, and provide an interface to the customer as well as the administrator.
EPOR is an extensible package organiser for Unix-like systems. It's written to trace filesystem changes (something being installed) and save this information in a simple text database (this, as any other provided feature, is customisable via the embedded Guile interpreter). Database entries contain information supplied by the command line (package name, version, etc.) and traced by filesystem changes (new directories, files, etc.). This is achieved using the "LD_PRELOAD method''.
