Payload Delivery Vehicle (PDV) is a program that builds an executable that contains a complete package (e.g. and RPM, System V package or tar file) and the commands required to install it. When the executable is run it will extract the payload (the package) and then execute another command (such as rpm -i, pkgadd -d etc.). The big advantage to this is that a developer can hand a user a single file to be executed - the end user does not need to know how to extract the package or get it installed.

PeeWeeLinux is a small Linux distribution for embedded applications. It is based on a RedHat 6.1 development platform, and features a graphical configuration tool, minimized XFree86 for embedded use, and small packages suitable for floppy-based systems. PeeWeeLinux differs from other small Linux distributions in that it is fully customizeable; its development environment allows for the building of embedded sytems from small single floppy routers to thin clients running from 64MB flash drives.

Pocket Linux is an almost minimal, one floppy linux system designed to quickly convert PC workstation into secure linux-based workstation using ssh to connect to remote host (other networking clients are also supported). It supports bootp for determining host IP and other network parameters (there's also manual configuration possible, but bootp is recommended). In addition to workstations equipped with a network card (ethernet or arcnet), you can also use Pocket Linux on a PC equipped with a modem. Modem is automatically detected and then PPP connection is made.

RACE (Remote Administration in distributed Computing Environments) is a library framework (and will be a set of applications) to aid the system administrator in deploying software and configuration updates to a large number of client computers. The administrator can easily treat intercommunities and respect differences between the individual computers. RACE uses RPM for package management, but it is designed to be easily extended for other package managers.

ROCK Linux is a distribution build kit for creating Linux distributions. You can easily design and build your own distribution by choosing packages, compilers, and optimization options, and optionally enable the GCC Stack-Smashing Protector for enhanced security. It is also possible to choose custom configure options, cross-compile, and much more. Many specialized targets (customized distributions) have already been created, such as a Desktop, Router, or Minimal distribution. A variety of architectures are supported.

rproxy is an extension to HTTP which allows transferring of differences between a web server and client, using an algorithm similar to rsync's. This works particularly well for dynamically-generated sites, where the pages are often similar but not the same on each visit. Transferring just the difference reduces network traffic and therefore loading time.

rsync is a replacement for rcp (and scp) that has many more features. It uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand.
