0release is a program to generate source and binary releases automatically. With minimal configuration, 0release will generate a source tarball release candidate, build it to create a binary archive, upload them to your Web server, check the uploads, and tag the release in GIT and update the version number. It can run unit-tests and custom actions, such as building documentation, etc. For Zero Install users, it can also upload a signed XML metadata file about the release, allowing these users to upgrade automatically. Releases are signed with your GPG key.
Origo is a software development and collaboration platform. It provides services that help develop software, such as source control management, issue tracking, wiki, release management, chat, blog, and forum. It uses an API to unify different tools and provides a common way to stay informed about changes in your projects. The API also allows you to integrate other tools into the plaform easily.
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.
The Ape Base Compile System is a set of scripts that leverage ESP EPM and MREPO to maintain Red Hat based systems that require custom and secluded binaries. It achieves cross platform reproducible compiles applications like Apache HTTPD, MySQL, and PHP, supports a common --prefix parent directory to allow different versions of an application to be installed, provides an easy method to switch between application versions, places selected application binaries in a central "bin" directory, supports delivery via Yum and other common installers, and provides a method for non-compiled "skeleton" files to be included with installation and distribution.
Releaser is a set of scripts to automate and manage the tasks related to software package releases. It is designed to be modular and to make it easy to both select a particular set of actions associated with releases of a particular project (such as changelog generation, uploading of tarballs, posting announcements to mailing lists), and create new actions that integrate seamlessly into the process. Its status is still somewhat experimental, but the most basic functionality is there.
Devalot is a social networking application centered around software projects. It connects the user community with the development community and encourages participation and communication. It includes all the features you've come to expect in modern Web-based applications such as tagging, comments, and a wiki, as well as features you'd expect in project tracking software such as ticketing. It has features similar to some of those found in Trac, Collaboa, GForge, Mephisto, and Typo.
moap is a Swiss army knife for project maintainers and developers. It aims to help in keeping you in the flow of maintaining, developing, and releasing. It automates whatever tasks can be automated. It allows you to parse DOAP files and submit releases, send release mails, create iCal files and RSS feeds, maintain version control ignore lists, check in based on the latest ChangeLog entry, and more.
ControlTier is a set of tools and an automation framework for deploying and managing multi-tier Web applications (or any application stack). It orchestrates the deployment and updating of code, data, and content across multiple physical, virtual, or cloud-based servers or clusters. Multiple tools include a command dispatching framework, a self-service Web interface, a multi-purpose CMBD/inventory tool, and a reporting infrastructure. Tools can be used individually or as an integrated system for large scale use.
rconftool is a reimplementation of Sam Varshavchik's sysconftool in Ruby. Its purpose is to keep configuration files "fresh" when upgrading an application from one version to another, ensuring that all necessary settings are present and that obsolete ones are removed. To use it, application writers need to distribute their config files marked up with some simple metadata in comments, and arrange for the "make install" or "make install-configure" target to invoke rconftool. rconftool can be called as a library function or from the command line. It can also install groups of files recursively from one directory tree into another.
