Site Change Detection is a class that scans a directory to detect file changes. It performs an initial scan of a given directory and records the names and hashes of files found in a MySQL database. Subsequent scans detect any files that were added, changed, or deleted. The class can also setup the database tables to perform the initial configuration.
neko-install-cd is a development tool for modifying System Rescue CD images. It can also perform many other operations. It has a simple interface with excellent inline help. Operations it can perform include: booting your modified image in a virtual machine, burning the original or modified image to a USB drive, creating patch sets from your modifications (using aufs or built-in helper scripts). All of these operations can be performed directly from your Linux distribution, without having to first boot into the system rescue CD as with the system rescue CD equivalents.
QSynergy is a comprehensive and easy-to-use graphical front end for Synergy. Synergy lets a user control more than one computer with a single mouse and keyboard (and has lots and lots of extra features on top of that). Since Synergy only has a GUI for MS Windows, QSynergy was written to step in and fill this gap for users on Mac and Unix platforms.
Backshift is a deduplicating (variable-sized, content-based blocks), compressing (xz or bz2) backup program. Full saves and incrementals are pretty indistinct other than the amount of data transmitted, somewhat like with "rsync --link-dest" but without the huge number of hardlinks. It also de-duplicates large file content at a granularity of about 2 megabytes on average; there tends to be a unique copy of each file with size less than around 2 megabytes on average.
