modu is a high-level toolkit for building database-driven Web applications in Python. It provides all the common components needed to build custom Web applications in Python, including form generation, object-relational database mapping support, pluggable template systems, database-resident session and user support, and more.
rsync-mirror is used to backup local directories to another location on the local machine or to a remote machine. As the name suggests, it uses rsync for data transfer so it should be pretty efficient. It does not support any nifty backup features like incremental backups; all it does is mirror a directory to another location. To ease the task of creating backups, rsync-mirror takes care of managing the destination site of the backup. In case the target path needs to be mounted, rsync-mirror does so before backup and unmounts it afterwards.
BinBackup is a tool intended to efficiently back up a directory to a set of size-limited media like CD-Rs or DVD-Rs. It's goal is to distribute the contents of a directory to a set of media while using the space available on these media as best as possible, minimizing the number of media required for a backup. To do this, BinBackup uses a bin packing algorithm to decide how to partition the contents of a directory and where to put them.
autober is a language for generating BER decoders. It's different from an ASN.1 compiler in that it's much simpler and it only deals with BER-encoded messages. It is intended for smart card and RFID applications where much of the data stored on these devices is, in-fact, BER-encoded TLV data. The language is designed to be very similar to the template definitions found in the specifications for smart card and RFID applications.
XMMS is a multimedia player based on the look of WinAmp. It plays MPEG layer 1/2/3, Ogg Vorbis, WAV, all formats supported by libmikmod, and CD audio. It has a plugin system for Input / Output / Effects / Visualization, and through plugins it can play many more sound and video formats.
TinyIDS is a distributed intrusion detection system (IDS) for Unix systems. It is based on the client/server architecture and has been developed with security in mind. The client, tinyids, collects information from the local system by running its collector backends. The collected information may include anything, from file contents to file metadata or even the output of system commands. The client passes all this data through a hashing algorithm and a unique checksum (hash) is calculated. This hash is then sent to one or more TinyIDS servers (tinyidsd), where it is compared with a hash that had previously been stored in the databases of those remote servers for this specific client. A response indicating the result of the hash comparison is finally sent back to the client. Management of the remotely stored hash is possible through the client's command line interface. Communication between the client and the server can be encrypted using RSA public key infrastructure (PKI).
snmp4zabbix provides a simple SNMP interface to the Zabbix monitoring solution. This lets Zabbix monitor itself using the Simple Network Management Protocol. This is an alternate solution to the Zabbix API for integration, to some extent, with any third party software capable of understanding SNMP.
