shipper is a power distribution tool for developers with multiple projects who do frequent releases. It automates the tedious process of shipping a software release and (if desired) templating a project Web page. It can deliver releases in correct form to SourceForge, Berlios, and Savannah, and knows how to post a release announcement to freecode.com via freecode-submit.
freecode-submit performs remote submissions of release updates to Freecode via its JSON API. It is intended for use in project release scripts. It reads the metadata from an RFC-2822-like message on standard input, possibly with overrides by commandline switches. It supersedes freshmeat-submit, which no longer works following the site name change.

W-Packager is a packager similar to dpkg that can be used by anyone to create and maintain Debian packages under Linux or other Unix systems. The aim of the project is primarily to have a workable version of a packager that can be compiled on many systems, including those that do not support fork(). At this time, W-Packager is used within UniGW. It can also be used under Linux.
MacPorts makes the world of open source software available to your Mac. There are over 5600 software titles ("ports"), each one installable with a single command. This is probably the biggest, most up to date open source software collection for Mac OS X. MacPorts works much like the ports collections of the major BSD operating systems.
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.
mach allows you to set up clean roots from scratch for any distribution or distribution variation supported. Currently, this is limited to RPM-based distributions. This clean build root can be used for making clean packages, running jailed services, testing builds, or making disk images of clean roots.
glucopy-glurestore is a set of scripts for copying and restoring a fully functional GNU/Linux (or other Unix-like) system. The glucopy script will back up all system content (system and user files), while the glurestore script will partition and format an identical system, restore the system and user files, and make the system bootable. The scripts are included in the HTML documentation.
