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.
NUU (Network Update Utility) is a GUI RPM package manager based on Yum that supports downloading, installation, and updating of packages from remote repositories, and removal of installed packages. It has the ability to examine both installed and available packages, and includes a repository configuration editor. It also supports package groups and suites of packages. Finally, it recognizes a simple authentication mechanism called buffet based on a server-side cgi-bin program.
Paludis is a package manager for Gentoo (and derived distributions) and Exherbo. It consists of a core library and a number of console-based clients. Package formats supported include Gentoo ebuilds and kdebuilds (as defined by the Package Manager Specification), the Exherbo exheres-0 format, and various miscellaneous utility pseudo-formats for managing accounts, unwritten and unavailable packages, and packages for which no package exists.
With 'nixstaller' you can easily make installers for Unix-like systems. Some of the project goals: support for many different platforms, support for different (optional) frontends used by the installer (currently FLTK, ncurses, GTK 2, and Qt are planned), ease of use for the install creator and the end user, different ways of installing (extract files to a location, compile software on the user's system, and maybe even integration for the package manager running on the user's system). Nixstaller can be fully translated and is programmed in C++ and sh.
LPMtool aims to be a complete package management and software distribution solution. It includes basic command line and PyGTK-based utilities for installing and removing packages, as well as tools to publish Web-based package repositories that use a GPG-based web-of-trust security model.
Osprey is a peer-to-peer enabled content distribution system. It is a metadata management system for software and document collections which enables local and distributed searching of materials. Items are available for download directly via an URL or indirectly via the BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol. Two components exist: the Osprey Web application and permaseed (permanent seed). The Web application includes metadata management for finding and exploring available content, as well as a BitTorrent tracker.
Stunnix CXX-Obfus is a code obfuscator for C and C++ source code. It converts source code into highly a mangled form, making it extremely difficult for competitors or customers to study, analyze, reuse, and re-work, while fully retaining functionality of the original code. It has many options to control all aspects of code hiding, and has full support for all syntax constructs. It is designed for multi-file projects with mixed C and C++ source and arbitrary heavy use of the C preprocessor. It includes advanced tools to exclude API symbols from mangling.
XPKGTOOL is a GUI front-end for pkgtools that allows you to manage, install, remove, and upgrade packages with ease, through a nice and user friendly X-based interface. It comes with a built-in update manager, called SlackGrade, that will help you to keep your Slackware system up to date, checking, downloading, and upgrading the system with the latest packages available from the main Slackware distribution sources on the Web.
m23 is a software deployment system for Debian GNU/Linux that allows you to install and administrate hundreds of clients via network. It can partition and format clients and install Debian, (K/X)Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, OpenSuse, and CentOS operating systems on your virtual and physical clients. Group functions allow the comfortable update and installation of further packages during operation. Mass installation functions simplify your administration chores. m23 has a Web interface. Backup functions are implemented for server and clients.
