Rover provides a means of executing commands on remote machines via SSH, Telnet, or Rlogin. Connections are made and then managed using the Expect for Perl module. Rover can process many hosts in parallel. It comes with two interface programs, rover and rovergtk. The first is a command line tool with a built-in shell and batching capabilities; the other uses a Gtk interface to configure and use Rover.
METAMOD is a portal solution providing Discovery, Access and Retrieve functionality for scientific datasets along with tools for DAR metadata like automatic extraction, manual editing, and conversion between different formats. Metadata can be converted to different formats and exposed using different search interfaces, i.e. ISO23950 and OAI-PM. It has been designed to be easily integratable with OpENDAP or FTP data servers, and allows data to be uploaded through FTP and HTTP interfaces. A WMS client is built in for visualizing the data.
svni is a wrapper for "svn ci" that provides an interactive check-in tool for Subversion. It features syntax checking before checking in files, the ability to make a last-minute selection of files when entering a commit message, and a display of the differences that are about to be checked in.
AllWorldIT DBackup is a backup system which creates one archive per directory it backs up. This makes searching through the backup much easier, as you can look for which files you're after in the directory hierarchy. It will only back up directories which have changed, which makes it rsync friendly.
JobRunner is a tool designed to run a job (i.e., to execute a commandline or script) which does not require user interaction, and to store the program's output (standard error and standard out) in an easy-to-read log file. It is able to save a configuration file of the job to be run, which can be used by JobRunner_Caller as a lightweight queueing system. See the Primer included in the archive for extra details on usage examples.
