Simple Package Manager (SPM) is intended to operate in a way similar to existing package managers (apt, dpkg, Pacman, etc.). Instead of supporting a centralized package repository, SPM allows remote packages to be downloaded and installed automatically, given their URL. This allows a developer to package and distribute software via a package management system without having to worry about the many different formats and Linux distribution repositories.
Viper is a system for completely automated installation and configuration of Debian GNU/Linux-based systems. It uses a modern approach with debian-installer and puppet, works with existing Debian packages, and does not require any custom patching of either install media, client, or server. The basis of the whole system is an LDAP server containing all configuration data.
The CPAN shell (and module) automates or at least simplifies the building and installation of Perl modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching capabilities and knows how to use Net::FTP, LWP, and certain external download clients to fetch distributions from the Internet. Then it automatically tests and installs them and their dependencies.
HAL/C++ is a library using dbusmm to access the HAL daemon. The library is not a wrapper around libhal and libhal-storage, but rather a reimplementation using dbusmm to communicate with the HAL daemon. Even though it is modeled after the official libhal and libhal-storage, it does not aim at complete adherance to the original API. The library is application-oriented, so for now, features that would only be useful to system-level applications or daemons, or HAL addons, are not being implemented. However, some of these features are mostly conveniences in the original libhal, and can be emulated even with the existing API.
Instant Boot Server allows you to set up a Debian GNU/Linux chroot environment and install a TFTP boot server onto it. Three "boot methods" are provided, one for providing the clients with the Debian Installer, one for providing an NFS root, and one for testing/playing with custom-built kernels and initrd images. The boot server is started and stopped on demand. The main program (shell script) is extensible, and may be used to serve as a platform for adding other server types.
The 64 Studio Platform Development Kit (PDK) is a version control system for GNU/Linux distributions, allowing the creation and management of many different projects, based on Debian and Ubuntu sources. PDK is written in Python, and the source code is well commented and contains documented examples.
