APT-RPM is a port of Debian's APT tools for RPM based distributions (Conectiva, Red Hat, SuSE, ALT-Linux, etc). APT is an advanced package management utility front-end which allows you to easily perform package installation, upgrading and removal. Dependencies are automatically handled, so if you try to install a package that needs others to be installed, it will download all needed packages and install them.
bdmn is client/server-oriented backup system. The daemon runs on the machine being backed up, and the client runs on the machine that stores the backup. It is very simple, but very fast. It only uses tar, gzip, uuencode, and Perl, so it is portable to many operating systems. It includes a very simple access control system for itself.
Swbis aims to implement the POSIX packaging standard with useful extensions. Working utilities include swpackage(8), swverify(8), swcopy(8), and swinstall(8). GPG/PGP signing and verification of tar archives is supported as well as an installed software catalog form that allows direct use of gpg(1) for verification of the GPG signature in the package database. swcopy and swinstall are network transparent by direct use of SSH and support multiple SSH hops for easy access to hosts behind a firewall. Neither has to be installed on the remote target host.
