## Projects

This page lists most of the Free Software projects I ever worked on. Some of them where created by me, in others I am just one of the many people who develop them. Some are being actively developed, others have reached a state where further modifications are seldom or not at all required, yet others were discontinued.

To facilitate navigating in this list, projects are categorized by their purpose, authorship, and current state. Each project entry lists the categories it pertains to. Clicking on a category name will bring a listing of all projects in that category.

Additionally, a list of related projects is provided where applicable. Each element in that list is a link to the corresponding project entry.

Clicking on a project's name will bring this project's entry as a separate page (a permalink).

Hovering your mouse over the version information of a project shows the list of changes introduced by that version.

Sort controls below allow you to order the list either lexicographically or by the most recent release date, in both directions.

Using the Search control, you can select projects by name. Shell-style globbing patterns (wildcards) are accepted.

### anubis

Version: 4.2  —  2014-05-23
** New operation mode: proxy

** Command line option precedence

Command line options take precedence over configuration file
statements.

** elif statement

A familiar elif' statement is supported, e.g.:

if condition-1
action-list-1
elif condition-2
action-list-2
elif condition-3
action-list-3
else
action-list-4
fi

** New CONTROL statement esmtp-auth-delayed.

When set to yes', this statement instructs Anubis to postpone ESMTP
authentication until MAIL command is issued by the client.  This
allows to change authentication credentials in the SMTP section (see
below).

** SMTP section

The new section "SMTP" is invoked each time an SMTP command
is received. This section may alter the command's argument, using the
"modify command", e.g.:

BEGIN SMTP
regex :extended
modify command [ehlo] "foo.bar.net"
if command ["mail from:"] "<(.*)>(.*)"
modify command ["mail from:"] "<root@bar.net>\2"
fi
END

It is also allowed to use esmtp-* keywords in this section, provided
that esmtp-auth-delayed yes' is set in the CONTROL section. Changes
in the ESMTP authentication credentials take effect if they occur
either before receiving MAIL command from the client, or when handling
this command, e.g.:

BEGIN SMTP
if command ["mail from:"] "<smith(\+.*)?@@example.net>"
esmtp-auth-id smith
else
esmtp-auth no
fi
END

** New keywords: log-facility and log-tag

** Guile output

By default Scheme's standard error and output ports are redirected to
syslog, using priorities err' and warning' correspondingly.

** MySQL options file

When using MySQL for Anubis user database, the database parameters and
access credentials are read from the file /etc/my.cnf, section
"anubis".  Additionally, two URL parameters are provided:
"options-file", which sets the name of the options file, and
"options-group", which sets the name of the group.


Category:
Description:

An SMTP message submission daemon. It represents an intermediate layer between mail user agent (MUA) and mail transport agent (MTA), receiving messages from the MUA, applying to them a set of predefined changes and finally inserting modified messages into an MTA routing network. The set of changes applied to a message is configurable on a system-wide and per-user basis.

### direvent

Version: 5.3  —  2021-12-30
* Introduce compound events

The "change" event is implemented on GNU/Linux and FreeBSD.  This
event is delivered when a file was modified and closed.

* New configuration statement for manipulating the environment.

The "environ" statement is now a compound statement. It can contain
five kinds of substatements: "clear" to clear the environment, "keep"
to retain certain variables while clearing the environment, "set" to
set a variable, "unset" to unset a variable or variables, and "eval"
to evaluate a variable reference for side effects.

Both "keep" and "unset" can take globbing pattern as their argument,
in which case they affect all variables matching that pattern.

The value part in the "set" statement is subject to variable
expansion.

The "environ" block can appear in global context as well.  In this
case it applies to all watchers.

The support for the old one-line "environ" syntax is retained for
backward compatibility.

* Variable expansion in arguments to some configuration statements.

Both macro and environment variables are expanded in arguments to all
substatements of the new "environ" block statement and in the argument
to the "command" statement.  In the latter case, expansion of the
environment variables is controlled by the "shell" option.  If the
option is set, the variable will be expanded by the shell.  Otherwise,
they are expanded by direvent prior to invoking the command.

* Rewrite the recursive watching support

In particular, this fixes the bug where recursive watchers silently
assumed that the "create" generic event was configured for the
watcher.

* Change interface for bulk closing of file descriptors

To speed up launching of the user commands, system-dependent
interfaces for closing the file descriptors above the given one are
used, if available.

Category:
Description:

GNU Direvent monitors a set of directories on the file system and reacts when their content changes. When a change is detected, the program invokes an external command configured for that kind of change.

The program is built as a sub-agent for Net-SNMP snmpd and is Linux-specific.

### idest

Version: 2.1  —  2017-03-11
* Convert textual frames to/from the currently used character set

set explicitly using the --charset option.

* New option --broken-8bit-encoding

Use this option for files where textual frames are stored as
ISO-8859-1, but are actually using another 8-bit encoding.  The
argument to this option is the name of the enchoding actually used.

In query mode, this option helps display such frames properly.

Use it with the --fixup option to fix such frames in the file.

* New option --encoding

Specifies encoding to store textual frames in ID3 tags.

* New option --fixup

Modifies the ID3 v2 tag so that it can be understood by most devices.

### inetutils

Version: 1.9.3  —  May 12, 2015
* ftp

An old inability to allow other names than the canonical name has
been corrected.  This means that a machine entry in the .netrc file
will now be used as expected.  Previously any alias name was replaced
by the corresponding canonical name, before reading the .netrc file.

The internal command hash' accepts a suffixed letter to the size
argument, like 12k', instead of 12288.  Made a minor change to the
syntax of the command itself, allowing size changes independently
of activation of hash markings.  After a transfer the summary gives
the speed as Mbytes/s', kbytes/s', or bytes/s'.

The .netrc file can be overridden by the environment variable NETRC.
Of even higher precedence is the new option -N/--netrc'.  The access
to the resulting file, whatever method, is now denied unless it is a
regular file.

* ifconfig

Better command line parsing on BSD and Solaris systems.  Touch only
changeable flags on all systems.

* logger

The ability to use numerical facilities is restored to full range.

* ping, ping6

The ability to specify a pattern as payload is corrected.

* syslogd

A new switch -T/--local-time' makes the service ignore a time
stamp passed on by the remote host, recording instead the local
time at the moment the message was received.  As a short form of
--pidfile', the switch -P' is new.

In common with other syslogd implementations, rsyslogd and sysklogd,
there has for a long time existed an attack vector based on large
facility numbers, made public in CVE-2014-3684.  This is now mended
in our code base.

* telnetd

The ability to autologin a client, without using authentication,
is now functional in the expected manner, i.e., the prompt for a
user name is suppressed in favour of an immediate password prompt.

In a setting where the client is using a UTF-8 encoding, it was
common to observe strange characters in most responses.  This was
caused by the server daemon, due to incomplete purging of internal
protocol data.  The issue should now be resolved.

* whois

Improved cooperation with servers like whois.arin.net', whois.eu',
and whois.ripe.net'.

Related projects: ### pies Version: 1.7 — 2022-01-02 * Changes in configuration preprocessing ** Each included file is preprocessed separately. The built-in preprocessor is removed. The #include and #include_once statements are now regular configuration statements. Any files included as a result of #include or #include_once are preprocessed separately. This differs from prior versions, were all includes were expanded first, the obtained material passed to the m4 and the resulting output was then parsed. This means that: 1. The mess with two preprocessors (built-in and external) is now gone. 2. Macros defined in a source file don't pollute the namespace of another sources. 3. Error locations can be accurately determined. 4. Preprocessor can emit forceful diagnostics (see below) to properly identify erroneous or otherwise suspicious constructs. ** The pp-setup' file is gone. By default, the preprocessor is started as m4 -s -P' with additional set of -I options and eventual -D or -U options if these are used in the command line of pies. Apart from this, no additional set up is performed. ** The precedence of -I options is fixed The -I options are placed in the m4 command line before the options that configure the default search path. * New forceful diagnostics statements ** #warning "TEXT" Emits warning. ** #error "TEXT" Emits error message. Further parsing continues, but will end with failure. ** #abend "TEXT" Emits error message and stops further processing immediately. If #error' or #abend' is encountered, the effect is the same as if syntax error has been detected. If it occurs at pies startup, the program will terminate abnormally. If it occurs as part of the reload sequence in a running instance of pies, the configuration file will be rejected and old configuration will remain in effect.  Category: Description: GNU pies (pronounced p-yes) is a program invocation and execution supervisor. This utility allows to execute usual foreground-mode applications in detached mode, as if they were daemons. It combines the fucntionality of init and inetd programs. It can be used to control complex multi-component software. Related projects: ### ping903 Version: 0.8 — 2020-03-19 * Use red-black trees to index the IP list.

Support for any new format can be easily added. ### rex Version: 4.1 — 2022-03-17 * Hostgroup stack Rex now maintains a stack of hostgroups. Once you push a hostgroup name on stack, that hostgroup will be used by any subsequent rex command, unless it is given the -g option. The new command "group" (see below) provides ways to pop items off the stack, swap arbitrary element with the top of stack, select new hostgroups on the fly, etc. * New command: rex group The "rex group" command has the following forms: rex group push GROUP Push GROUP on stack. rex group pop Pop the topmost group off the stack. rex group swap N Exchange top of the stack with the Nth element (0-based). rex group drop N Remove Nth element from the stack. rex group select COMMAND ARGS... Create on top of the stack a temporary group that contains those hosts from the current hostgroup where the supplied shell command returns success, i.e. exits with code 0. rex group show List the contents of the hostgroup stack. * Add configuration function for overriding PTR records from rc files  Category: Description: Rex is a remote execution utility that runs a supplied command on a set of remote hosts. Arbitrary data can be supplied to the command in the form of local files, which will be transferred to each remote host prior to running the command and removed afterwards. Both parallel and sequential execution is supported. Special mode exists to distribute a file or files to several hosts. Rex is written in TCL and has extensive scripting facilities. It provides a convenient way to administrate multiple servers. The program is designed to operate in a minimalistic environment. It is self-contained and does not need any external libraries. ### rpipe Version: 1.8 — 2021-05-17 * Syslog support New option '-S FACILITY' switches diagnostic output to the given syslog facility.

Related projects: ### slackdesc (Not released) Category: Description: Formats a slack-desc file for Slackware package. Related projects: ### slackupgrade Version: 2.3 — 2022-04-30 * Support for Slackware 15.0  Category: Description: Upgrades the Slackware installation to a new release. Two upgrade types are supported. In normal upgrade only packages already installed on the system are upgraded. In full upgrade, all packages from the new release are installed. A combination of the two can be achieved by supplying a list of additional Slackware series when running the normal upgrade. ### slb Version: 1.1 — 2012-03-30 * Support SNMPv3 * Default SNMP version is 2c * Use newer Grecs * Drop unneeded dependencies * Variable assignments in expressions * Detection of SNMP counter overflows * Comma operator * Support for indexed MIBs This feature allows you to use symbolic names instead of the fixed MIBs for MIBs that are part of SNMP subtrees. For example, to get number of packets sent over eth0 into variable "out", you would do the following: table iftable IF-MIB::ifDescr; variable out "IF-MIB::ifOutUcastPkts.$iftable[eth1]";

The first statement converts the subtree into a "table" named "iftable".
The second statement references an entry in this table that has
the value "eth1".  For example, if the SNMP tree has the following MIB

IF-MIB::ifDescr.10: eth0

then the expression "$iftable[eth]" yields "10" * Assertion syntax changed. The assertion statement takes a single argument, which must be a string consisting of the following three parts: <oid: string> [!]<opcode>[/i] <value: string> The <opcode> part can be either an arithmetical operator (=, <, <=, >, >=), or any of the following string operators: eq string equality ne string inequality prefix oid value must begin with <value> suffix oid value must end with <value> glob <value> is a glob(7) pattern that oid value must match Each of these can be suffixed with "/i" to request case-insensitive comparison. A "!" in front of opcode reverts its meaning. The <value> part must not include the type prefix.  Category: Description: A simple load balancer. The utility monitors a set of remote servers, obtaining a set of numeric values via SNMP. These values are used to compute a single floating-point number, called a relative load for that server. The servers are then sorted in order of increasing loads and the resulting table is output (using a configurable format string) to a file or pipe.

Category: Description: This program provides system log forwarding facility for confined environments, such as docker containers. It listens for incoming system log messages on the UNIX socket file /dev/log and forwards them to the specified remote server. Relayed messages are normalized to make sure they comply with the RFC 3164. In particular, hostname is added if necessary. This is important in docker environments, since otherwise the collector would insert the IP address of the container or gateway in place of the missing hostname, and neither IP is informative enough to identify the container where the message originated. ### tagr (Not released) Category: Description: Decomissioned. ### tallyman Version: 1.4 — 2021-11-22 * tallyman: if passed empty service ID, don't attempt to contact the collector  Category: Description: Monitors state of running docker containers via SNMP. The package provides two utilities: • tallyman A health state collector to be run inside the container. • stevedore A container state collector and SNMP agent daemon. Each container is supposed to run the tallyman command as part of its HEALTHCHECK configuration. This tool takes as its argument the command line that does the actual checking, collects its return and sends it over to the stevedore daemon that acts as a collector and simultaneously as a SNMP subagent, delivering the collected information to the snmpd daemon.
