AutoRPM is a program that can do any combination of the following: mirror RPMs from an FTP site, keep installed RPMs consistent with an FTP site or local directory and keep installed RPMs in a cluster or network of systems consistent. It is highly flexible and contains a fully command-line driven interactive install mode (for installing RPMs from the queue or for installing RPMs from your system interactively). It also handles recursive dependencies, multiple versions of the same RPM, the same RPM with multiple architectures, and more. It does some of the same tasks as up2date and AutoUpdate.
AutoScrapbook helps automate the creation and maintenance of an online photo gallery. It creates the thumbnails and Web pages for you by asking you for descriptions of the pictures. It works best when run under Linux and within X (for picture viewing), but you could use it through only a terminal and a separate browser if necessary. It can optionally allow you to delete, rename, and rotate images during the description process. It can also use the programs exif, exiftags, and/or jhead to access EXIF data from the images and/or store descriptions within the JPEG header. Note that this program creates a static Web site around existing images, using the existing directory structure as the heirarchy for the Web site.
mp3Rip is yet another MP3 ripper. This one requires very little user intervention--you just have to insert the CD and start the program. It rips the songs as quickly as possible so another CD can be started while other CDs are being compressed. It also organizes MP3s using CDDB information, and it can recover from errors with minimal wasted effort.
ImageBackup is a fully automatic incremental backup system for digital pictures. It will create backup CDs, one at a time, until all images have been backed up. You than then run the program regularly and it will keep gathering images until another disc is full. Once a disc is full, it can use AutoScrapbook to create Web-based index files, automatically generate an ISO image, and reset the staging area. Once an image has been stored in a backup ISO image, it will not be backed up again. Any new images, regardless of where they are mixed into your directory structure, will be added to backups when necessary.
Hampton Bay RF Fan Control Software includes schematics for simple circuits to connect a Hampton Bay RF remote control to a Weeder digital I/O and Analog input board, a daemon to control and monitor one or more ceiling fans using these Weeder boards, and a Misterhouse module to interface with the fan_control_daemon.
KickstartWeb is a complete Web interface for provisioning Linux machines using Kickstart and PXE booting. It has been tested with Fedora Core, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and CentOS. It provides control over your TFTP files and a complete Web GUI for creating and managing Kickstart files. You can manage multiple Linux distributions, multiple Kickstart profiles, and can use default and/or MAC-specific provisioning.

Nope, still going strong, although I forgot to put our latest release out here. The site runs on port 81 due to my ISP's restrictions and my guess is your company blocks port 81 HTTP traffic.

I had slacked off for a while, but AutoRPM is now being actively maintained and expanded again.
