Vesta is an advanced system for source code control, versioning, configuration management, and building. It is an alternative to CVS+make. It has a variety of unique features including automatic language-independent dependency detection, guaranteed repeatability of builds, and seamless multi-site collaboration.
cvssh is a solution for securing a CVS pserver. The CVS pserver option is a useful but insecure tool for managing CVS repositories. Most approaches to securing CVS either involve ssh tunneling or avoidance of pserver altogether. The cvssh program offers a third alternative, which combines the simplicity of ext on the client with the flexibility of a pserver-based repository.
Panasync Tools provides a set of commands that enables version tracking among plain file copies. Retaining the basic functionality of standard copy commands, one can always track if a file has seen more updates than another file, and determine redundant or equivalent file copies. The approach is totally decentralized and serverless, and the functionality is achieved by small command-line user level programs that manipulate (by duplicating, comparing, joining and moving) any given file. By copying files with these commands users can detect if those files forgotten on disks or dispersed on different file systems and computers hold obsolete versions, and can thus be deleted, or need to be merged when depicting parallel updates. The updates, themselves can be done by any application since the system keeps a digest of the files to detect changes.
