IPFS (IPSquad Package From Source) is a system which allows you to trace an program's installation from sources and register it in your favorite packaging system (only the Slackware package system and RPM are currently supported). IPFS watches a command (generally make install), collects the list of added files, and then registers them in the chosen packaging system as if the install was made from a normal package. Unlike other similar products, IPFS is able to track both shared and statically linked programs.
The GNOME Structured File Library is a utility library for reading and writing structured file formats. Support for MS OLE2 streams is complete, as is zip import. There is also support for document metadata and some initial work on decompressing VBA streams in OLE files for future conversion to other languages. This library replaces libole2 and is used in gnumeric, mrproject, abiword, libwv2, koffice. It is also part of the AAF format.
radmind is a suite of Unix command-line tools and a server designed to remotely administer the file systems of multiple Unix machines. At its core, radmind operates as a tripwire. It is able to detect changes to any managed filesystem object, e.g. files, directories, links, etc. However, radmind goes further than just integrity checking: once a change is detected, radmind can optionally reverse the change. Each managed machine may have its own loadset composed of multiple, layered overloads. This allows, for example, the operating system to be described separately from applications. Loadsets are stored on a remote server. By updating a loadset on the server, changes can be pushed to managed machines.
SouRCe PacKaGer (srcpkg) is a program for managing separate software packages under the same directory hierarchy. It is especially useful for packages distributed as source. It is similar to GNU Stow, Depot, etc., but works by creating packages from new files found in the directory tree, allowing it to manage large, complex, interdependent packages such as those of KDE and GNOME.
DJWrap is an effort to create an open format for combining several MPEG audio streams into one, without losing information about the original files and without disturbing the stream with erroneous or misplaced data. To this is added MD5 checksumming of each individual substream as well as an extendable data format which will, to the furthest extent, provide both backward and forward compatibility. It also supports both DJWrap and AlbumWrap files, and therefore replaces ALBWtool, which has been discontinued.
