I got some very interesting comments on my post about Linux projects that need more attention, so I decided to feature a few of the readers’ recommendations.

fsniper is a cool app that monitors a certain directory for changes. You can then tell fsniper to run a script when a certain file name or file type is changed.

Coccinella is a “communication and collaboration tool” with a whiteboard. Many people might just yawn and say it is just another Pidgin competitor, since it features multi-protocol messaging, but I suggest you try it out first and then decide whether you should throw it into the same basket.
