<p>ArgoUML is the leading open source UML modeling tool and includes
support for all standard UML 1.4 diagrams. It runs on any Java platform
and is available in ten languages. See the feature list for more details.</p>

<h2><a href="http://bongo-project.org/">Bongo</a></h2>

<p>The Bongo Project is creating fun and simple mail, calendaring and
contacts software: on top of a standards-based server stack; we're
innovating fresh and interesting web user interfaces for managing
personal communications. Bongo is providing an entirely free software
solution which is less concerned with the corporate mail scenario and
much more focused on how people want to organize their lives.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.boost.org/">Boost</a></h2>

<p>Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.</p>

<p>Boost emphasizes libraries that work well with the C++ Standard
  Library.  Boost libraries are intended to be widely useful, and usable
  across a broad spectrum of applications.  The Boost license encourages
  both commercial and non-commercial use.</p>

<p>Boost aims to establish &ldquo;existing practice&rdquo; and provide
reference implementations so that Boost libraries are suitable for
eventual standardization. Ten Boost libraries are already included in the
C++ Standards Committee's Library Technical Report (TR1) as a step toward
becoming part of a future C++ Standard. More Boost libraries are proposed
for the upcoming TR2.</p>

<h2><a href="https://www.bro.org/">Bro Network Security Monitor</a></h2>

<p>Bro provides a comprehensive platform for network traffic analysis, with a
particular focus on semantic security monitoring at scale. While often
compared to classic intrusion detection/prevention systems, Bro takes a quite
different approach by providing users with a flexible framework that
facilitates customized, in-depth monitoring far beyond the capabilities of
traditional systems. With initial versions in operational deployment during
the mid '90s already, Bro finds itself grounded in more than 20 years of
research.</p>

<h2><a href="http://buildbot.net/">Buildbot</a></h2>

<p>
Buildbot is a freely-licensed framework which enables software
developers to automate software build, test, and release processes for their
software projects.  First released in 2003, Buildbot is used by leading 
software projects around the world to automate all aspects of their 
software development cycle. </p>

<h2 id="busybox"><a href="https://busybox.net/">BusyBox</a></h2>

<p>BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a
single small executable. It provides replacements for most of the
utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The
utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their
full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included
provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU
counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete environment for any
small or embedded system.</p>

<p>BusyBox has been written with size-optimization and limited
resources in mind. It is also extremely modular so you can easily
include or exclude commands (or features) at compile time. This makes
it easy to customize your embedded systems. To create a working
system, just add some device nodes in /dev, a few configuration files
in /etc, and a Linux kernel.</p>


<h2><a href="https://clojars.org/">Clojars</a></h2>

<p>Clojars is a community-maintained repository for free and open source
libraries written in the Clojure programming language. Clojars emphasizes
ease of use, publishing library packages that are simple to use with build
automation tools.</p>

<p>coreboot is an extended firmware platform that delivers lightning fast
secure boot on modern computers and embedded systems. As an open source
project it provides auditability and maximum control over the computers that
run it.  It is industrial-strength firmware that secures more 30 million
shipped devices, including personal computers, headless servers, tablets,
and Internet of Things devices.</p>

<h2><a href="http://darcs.net/">Darcs</a></h2>

<p>Darcs is a distributed revision control system written in Haskell. In
Darcs, every copy of your source code is a full repository, which allows for
full operation in a disconnected environment, and also allows anyone with
read access to a Darcs repository to easily create their own branch and
modify it with the full power of Darcs' revision control. Darcs is based on
an underlying theory of patches, which allows for safe reordering and
merging of patches even in complex scenarios. For all its power, Darcs
remains a very easy to use tool for every day use because it follows the
principle of keeping simple things simple.  Darcs is free software
licensed under the GNU GPL.</p>

<h2><a href="/news/2015/aug/17/debian/">Debian Copyright Aggregation Project</a></h2>

<p>The Debian Copyright Aggregation Project offers contributors to
  the <a href="https://www.debian.org">Debian project</a> the optional
  opportunity, regarding their works contributed to Debian, to assign
  copyrights or sign a license enforcement agreement (which delegates to
  Conservancy the authority of license enforcement).  The Project also
  creates an ongoing relationship between Conservancy and Debian, wherein
  Conservancy offers Debian its expertise and advice on software licensing,
  enforcement, and related issues.</p>

<h2><a href="https://evergreen-ils.org/">Evergreen</a></h2>

<p>The Evergreen Project develops an open source ILS (integrated library
system) used by hundreds of libraries across the world. The software, also
called Evergreen, is used by libraries to provide their public catalog
interface as well as to manage back-of-house operations such as
circulation (checkouts and checkins), acquisition and cataloging of
library materials, and sharing resources among groups of libraries and
consortia on the same Evergreen system.  Evergreen is designed to be
scalable and supports library operations ranging from a small high school
to large state-wide consortia.  Evergreen is released under
the <a href="http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html">GPLv2</a>-or-later.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.gevent.org/">Gevent</a></h2>

<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="https://git-scm.com/">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>

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://harvey-os.org/">Harvey OS</a></h2>

<p>Harvey is a new operating system. It’s most directly descended from Plan 9, the research operating system developed at Bell Labs as a successor to Unix. This influence spans from its distributed application architecture all the way down to much of its code. However, Harvey aims to be a more practical, general-purpose operating system, so it also uses ideas and code from other systems.</p>

<p>Harvey strives to provide an accessible development environment. The kernel is compact—less than 100,000 lines of code. You can build it with either GCC or LLVM, and run it under QEMU or real hardware. This makes it especially suitable for education and experimentation. It is a work in progress and the development team welcomes new contributors and ideas.</p>

<h2><a href="http://brew.sh/">Homebrew</a></h2>

<p>Homebrew is a software package manager for Apple's OS X operating 
system. Homebrew installs the free and open source software that OS X 
users need that Apple didn't install by default.</p>

open source software and open technology standards. The SurveyOS Project
currently devotes programming efforts and source code to the open source
desktop GIS program known as OpenJUMP. It also dedicates a set of AutoLISP
source code via the GPL that can be used to add surveying and geospatial
functionality to other software.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.swig.org/">SWIG</a></h2>

<p>SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C
and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages.  SWIG is used
with different types of languages including common scripting languages
such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl and Ruby. The list of supported languages
also includes C&#35;, Java, Lua, Octave and R amongst others. SWIG is most
commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming
environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping
C/C++ software.</p>

<h2><a href="http://teachingopensource.org/">Teaching Open Source</a></h2>

<p>Teaching Open Source (TOS) exists to support instructors and FLOSS community
members who desire to support student involvement in FLOSS projects
within academic institutions.  The TOS community is supported by a web
site, mailing list, and planet and welcomes new community members from
both academia and FLOSS projects.</p>

<h2><a href="https://twistedmatrix.com/">Twisted</a></h2>
<p>Twisted is an event-based engine for Internet applications, written in
Python. Twisted supports TCP, SSL and TLS, UDP, Unix sockets, multicast,
and serial ports. It also includes a Web server, an SMTP/POP3 server, a
telnet server, an SSH server, an IRC server, a DNS server, and of course
APIs for creating new protocols. It supports integration with GTK+ 2, Qt,
Tkinter, wxPython, Mac OS X (PyObjC) and Win32 event loops.</p>

<h2><a href="https://www.uclibc.org/">uCLibc</a></h2>

<p>uClibc (pronounced yew-see-lib-see) is a C library
for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller than the GNU
C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work
perfectly with uClibc. Porting applications from glibc to uClibc
typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc even
supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard
Linux and MMU-less (also known as uClinux) systems with support for
alpha, ARM, cris, i386, i960, h8300, m68k, mips/mipsel, PowerPC, SH,
SPARC, and v850 processors.</p>

<h2><a href="http://www.winehq.org/">Wine</a></h2>

<p>Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of
X and Unix.  It is a compatibility layer for running Windows
programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a
completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API
consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use
native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a
development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as
a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on
x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris</p>
