Admin-packages is a package manager for sources. Among other things, it handles multiple local and remote repositories, user defined tmacro transformations, recursive dependency resolution, installation logging and package removal, creation and installation of binary packages, and the ability to create new distributions from scratch.
Conary is a distributed software management system for Linux distributions. It replaces traditional package management solutions (such as RPM and dpkg) with one designed to enable loose collaboration across the Internet. It enables sets of distributed and loosely connected repositories to define the components which are installed on a Linux system. Rather than having a full distribution come from a single vendor, it allows administrators and developers to branch a distribution, keeping the pieces which fit their environment while grabbing components from other repositories across the Internet.
debshare.create is a hackish script used for producing .debshare files, which are basically "self-executable", monolithic archives containing several .deb packages. A .debshare file is meant to install one (or more) applications that it contains, complete with all its dependencies. This facilitates easy sharing of applications across computers using a single file, as opposed to multiple .deb packages. This idea was originally meant for Ubuntu systems, but there should be no reason why it shouldn't work on other similar distributions. Technically, a .debshare file is a bash shell script with a binary payload (a tar archive with the .deb-s) appended to it.
Mouf is a special kind of PHP framework. It combines an Inversion of control (IOC) framework and a component download system in a nice Web-based user interface. The goal of Mouf is to help you use and re-use components. By itself, it does not provide anything useful, but it will help you download and install libraries of components, and bind those components together. You will get better and cleaner code using Mouf. Mouf features more than 100 packages providing various ready-to-use components of a Web application, ranging from an MVC framework to an ORM layer, logging, form generation, image manipulation, Drupal integration, authentication, etc.
Sincerity is a tool for installing and bootstrapping software stacks on top of the JVM. It makes these otherwise tedious tasks easy, simple, and fun. Your Sincerity containers are straightforward development playgrounds. Simply create a new container when you want to try out a new approach. Delete the directory when done, and it's as if nothing ever happened. Sincerity's growing ecology of plugins makes it especially easy to add powerful features to your product, such as centralized logging and robust daemons with surprisingly minimal fuss.
The Source Ruckus Packager (SRP) is a lightweight, yet fully-featured package manager. The target audience for this packager is not the big-time distribution developers, but a single user rolling his or her own at home (or in a small office). This utility is part of the Source Ruckus project.
