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.

Owl (Openwall GNU/*/Linux) is a small security-enhanced Linux distribution for servers. Owl also makes a good base system for customized virtual machine images and embedded systems, and Owl live CDs with remote SSH access are good for recovering or installing systems (whether with Owl or not). A single Owl CD includes the full live system, installable packages, the installer program, as well as full source code and the build environment capable of rebuilding the entire system from source. Owl supports multiple architectures (x86, x86-64, SPARC, and Alpha) and offers some compatibility for packages developed for other Linux distributions. The primary approaches to security are proactive source code review, privilege reduction, privilege separation, careful selection of third-party software, safe defaults, and "hardening" to reduce the likelihood of successful exploitation of security flaws.

autopackage allows developers to produce "install anywhere" packages for 3rd party Linux software. The resulting packages support both graphical and terminal frontends, support dependency checking and resolution, and use deep desktop integration. Additionally, tools to enhance the packaged software such as binreloc and relaytool are provided. By providing an autopackage, developers can ensure their users always have an easy way of installing the latest release of their software.

gBootRoot makes the construction and development of distributions fun and simple with its Root Methods (Yard) and user-mode-linux test bed. Finish the product with a Boot Method (2-disk compression supported). Normal (non-root) users can make root filesystems and boot disks. It includes the make_debian script to create a testable user-mode-linux base Debian system, add-ons to enhance methods, and an MTD Emulator useful for running distributions made with the jffs/jffs2 filesystem.

make_uninstall is used to monitor a command like 'make install', so a record of the install can be created, which will allow you to completely remove the package from your system later.

Appctl is a framework for virtually any server software. It provides a central script called "ctl" which allows you to start, stop, restart, maintain, or query the current status of an application. It is meant as a completely generic replacement for application-specific startup/stop scripts. The project also supplies generic monitoring scripts for clusters, which can dramatically decrease clustering costs.

Thinux is a thin-client server on a live CD. It boots a network of diskless computers to automatically start an application such as a Web browser. Each thin client machine acts as a cluster node to share its processing and memory resources with each other to take the load off the server. It is a turnkey solution that does not change nor rely on your existing systems to run. By booting from a removable CD, it does not lock-in the user so it is convenient to test. It is ideal for any organizations that require large deployment of software automatically and cost effectively.

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.
