The Bonobo UI Library provides UI code for Bonobo, the Object Activation Framework for GNOME 2. Bonobo has a similar purpose to gnorba, the GNOME 1.x CORBA activation library, and will replace it for GNOME 2.0. It allows you to do much more powerful activation queries than gnorba. Each server is described by an XML file that defines its attributes. When querying or activating, you can specify complex requirements using the OAF query language.

The sgml-common package gathers very basic stuff necessary to work with SGML and XML, such as xml.dcl, a SGML declaration of XML; iso-entities, a list of the basic SGML ISO entities; and install-catalog, a script used to add entries to (or remove entries from) centralized catalogs whose entries are pointers to SGML open catalogs, as defined by OASIS. It also includes sgmlwhich, a small script which prints where the SGML main configuration file is located (provided for compatibility with non-FHS systems).
dash (Debian Almquist Shell) is a POSIX compliant shell that is much smaller than bash. It can be usefully installed as /bin/sh (because it executes scripts somewhat faster than bash), or as the default super-user shell. Because it depends on fewer libraries, it is therefore less likely to be affected by an upgrade problem or a disk failure. It is also useful for checking whether a script uses only POSIX syntax. This shell was ported from NetBSD's ash.
eyeOS is a Web desktop environment, commonly known as a Web OS or Web Office. The basic system comes with some office and PIM applications, and the complete eyeOS software database can be found at eyeApps.org and in the public server. More information can be found at the forums and in the screenshots section.
FAM, the File Alteration Monitor, provides an API which applications can use to be notified when specific files or directories are changed. It comes in two parts: fam, the daemon which listens for requests and delivers notification, and libfam, a library which client applications can use to communicate with fam.

Point to the source not the binary The download location should point to the src distribution, not the binary distribution. Or maybe the ftp dir (instead of a specific file).
Newer Version (for GNOME2) Check out http://freshmeat.net/projects/orbit2/ (http://freshmeat.net/projects/orbit2/) for Orbit2.
Compiling with gcc 3 FYI: To compile with gcc 3, check out patches at ftp://dickey.his.com/ncurses/5.2 (ftp://dickey.his.com/ncurses/5.2).
