Stash is a package manager for non-root users. It makes it easier for you to install, track, and maintain packages and modules in your home directory. It does this by detecting the type of package or module you are installing and passing all the correct command line arguments to the relevant configure scripts and/or makefiles. It is extensible via custom packages, and tracks both architecture dependent and independent packages in separate directories so that they can be shared across systems. Package tracking uses symlinks in a manner similar to GNU stow. It supports autoconf, Perl and Python modules, imake (xmkmf), PMK, and many custom packages.

Luau provides a backbone for disseminating software updates throughout a software project's userbase. It differs from other autoupdate solutions (eg. apt, Red Hat Network) in that it works on a decentralized basis: developers provide a "Luau Repository" file describing all currently available packages and updates which is then downloaded and interpreted by the client. It is also more flexible in that individual developers can distribute not only software updates but messages throughout the userbase, which can be used to inform users of important security updates, new software roadmaps, or anything else the developer thinks is important for users of the software package. Also provided is an X front-end ('luau-x') and a console-based front-end ('luau') that allow the user to check for and download or install updates for all supported software.

The Hunting of the Snark Project contains a client for downloading and sharing files distributed with the BitTorrent protocol. It is mainly used for exploring the BitTorrent protocol and experimenting with the GNU Compiler for Java (gcj), but it can also be used as a regular BitTorrent client. Snark can also act as a torrent creator, a tiny HTTP server for delivering metainfo.torrent files, and has an integrated tracker for making the sharing of files as easy as possible. When you use the --share option, Snark will automatically create a .torrent file and start a very simple Web server to distribute the metainfo.torrent file and a local tracker that other BitTorrent clients can connect to.
