TWiki is a flexible, powerful, and simple Web based collaboration platform. It is suitable for dynamic intranets and knowledge bases, and for sharing and managing documents and collaborative projects. It resembles a normal Web site, but every page can be changed from a browser. It features automatic link generation, full text search, group authorization, Web forms, reporting, change notification, file attachments, revision control of pages and attachments, a modular templating system with skins, hierarchical navigation based on the topic parenting feature, and more. Plugins can be used to enhance the program and build groupware applications.
Config-Model provides a framework for editing and validating the content of any configuration file or data. With a configuration model (expressed in a data structure), Config-Model provides a user interface and a tool to validate configuration. An optional graphical (Perl/Tk) or curses interface can be used to edit configuration data that will be validated according to the user-provided model. Config-Model includes a model example for fstab and a small fstab demo.
Evergreen is an integrated library system originally developed by the Georgia PINES consortium for use as their automation system, and now includes contributions from around the world. It was designed from scratch for large-scale deployment in very large public library and state-wide consortium environments with tens of millions of records and hundreds of libraries, but can also scale down to the smallest of single-branch libraries.

movemetafs is a searchable filesystem metadata store for Linux that lets users tag local files (including image, video, audio, and text files) by simply moving the files to a special folder using any file manager. It also lets users find files by tags using a boolean search query. The original files (and their names) are kept intact. movemetafs doesn't have its own user interface, but it is usable with any file manager.
Annotate provides an annotation facility for DocBook documents. It enables visitors to an online version of a DocBook document to add comments to any paragraph or chapter of the document. It extends the DocBook XSL stylesheets, leading to modified HTML output which contains anchors at those places where annotations can be made. Comments and notes are stored in a DBMS. A CGI program then merges the HTML document and the comments to produce the output for the visitor.
Larbin is a Web crawler intended to fetch a large number of Web pages to fill the database of a search engine.
