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.
Foresight Linux is a desktop operating system featuring an intuitive user interface and a showcase of the latest desktop software, giving users convenient and enjoyable access to their music, photos, videos, documents, and Internet resources. As a Linux distribution, Foresight sets itself apart by eliminating the need for the user to be familiar with Linux, combining a user-focused desktop environment on top of Conary. As the most technically innovative software management system available today, Conary ensures that users can efficiently search, install, and manage all the software on the Foresight system, including bringing in the latest features and fixes without waiting for a major release.
Listaller unifies the way you manage software on your Linux system by providing a user-friendly, application-centered software manager GUI. It also provides a software setup package format (the IPK package format), which works on all Linux distributions, as well as tools to make your application binaries work on every Linux distribution. The project has merged with Autopackage some time ago. One of Listaller's strengths is its close integration with AppStream and PackageKit. This means that you will be able to manage Listaller-installed applications with your favorite package-manager, like GNOME-PackageKit, Apper, or even the Ubuntu Software Center. Listaller is primarily designed to be run on Linux distributions, but it could be ported to *BSD.

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.

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.
