<p>Gevent is a fast, coroutine-based networking library for Python.
 
Gevent is used in network applications, including servers that scale
 
up to tens thousands of connections but without the complexity usually
 
associated with event-driven architecture.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Gevent provides light-weight &ldquo;green&rdquo; threads with a similar
 
interface as the standard &ldquo;threading&rdquo; and
 
&ldquo;multiprocessing&rdquo; packages.  The library includes a DNS
 
resolver, a WSGI server, a monkey patching utility to make 3rd party
 
protocol implementations cooperative and support for SSL sockets.</p>
 

	
 
<h2><a href="http://www.git-scm.org/">Git</a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
 
  designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
 
  speed and efficiency.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Every Git clone is a full-fledged repository with complete history and
 
  full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access
 
  or a central server. Branching and merging are fast and easy to do.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Git is used for version control of files, much like tools such as
 
  Mercurial, Bazaar, Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and Visual SourceSafe.</p>
 

	
 
<h2>GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers</h2>
 

	
 
<p>The GPL Compliance Project for Linux Developers is comprised of
 
copyright holders in the kernel, Linux, who have contributed to Linux
 
under its license, the GPLv2. These copyright holders have formally asked
 
Conservancy to engage in compliance efforts for their copyrights in the
 
Linux kernel.</p>
 

	
 
<h2><a href="http://www.inkscape.org/">Inkscape</a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>Inkscape is an Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities
 
similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the
 
open-standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format. Inkscape's
 
main goal is to create a powerful and convenient drawing tool fully
 
compliant with XML, SVG, and CSS standards.</p>
 

	
 
<p>In contrast to raster (bitmap) graphics editors such as Photoshop or
 
Gimp, Inkscape stores its graphics in a vector format. Vector graphics
 
is a resolution-independent description of the actual shapes and
 
objects that you see in the image. This description is then used to
 
determine how to plot each line and curve at any resolution or zoom
 
level.</p>
 

	
 
<h2><a href="http://www.k-3d.org">K-3D</a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>K-3D is the free-as-in-freedom 3D modeling, animation, and rendering
 
system for GNU/Linux, MacOSX, and Windows operating systems. K-3D is based
 
on a powerful Visualization Pipeline that enables procedural modeling and
 
a robust plugin architecture, and is designed to scale to the needs of
 
professional artists.</p>
