Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
wv2ogg is a tool that uses wvunpack, oggenc, and vorbiscomment to encode wavpack files to Ogg Vorbis files. The quality setting that will be used for encoding the Vorbis files can be set when running wv2ogg. It will also transfer all tags and replaygain information from the wavpack files to the Ogg Vorbis files by default. wv2ogg was written because no other software that would do this existed for Linux.
dirogg is a small script to migrate your entire music collection to the Ogg Vorbis format. It's a recursive script, meaning that you run it from the root of your music collection, and it will automatically convert your MP3 files to Ogg Vorbis (ogg) files. If you wish, it can also remove your MP3 files after conversion.
