Abstract : Open Source support, coherent joint software development and packaging is a very im- portant initiative for ensuring strong integration, network survivability and transfer of tech- nology developed within the network. In the management community, many Open Source components have been produced over the years, some of them being widely used to- day for several purposes. Recent evolutions in management and networking technologies however did slow the use of these very valuable software components and the rythm of new productions has decreased drastically. From the very beginning, EMANICS partners did recognize the need to support the Open Source initiatives in the area of management to foster their use and acceptance on large scale. In June 2007, a first call has been issued to the EMANICS community containing two sub-calls : one for software development and one for Open Source software packaging. Four initiatives have been selected in the first call : SMIng support in LibSMI, P2PFastSS, ISMS implementation and VoIPbots. Two proposals have been selected in the packaging part: Open Diameter packaging and NDPMon packaging and integration in standard Linux distributions. In addition, the work on management software categorisation, annotation and referencing did continue. A second call was issued in April 2008. Like the first call of the second phase, it did contain two sub-calls : one on software development and one on software packaging. Five development projects were selected in this call : (1) lamda Monitor, (2) Linubia, (3) NetVis, (4) SMIYang, and (5) JYang together with three packaging projects : (1) TOMP2P, (2) SNMPDump and (3) Weathermap). This report provides the details of the two calls (and four subcalls) that have been issued since June 2007 and for every selected project, a detailed description of the software package together with the achievements made with EMANICS support. The work on the software inventory database is also reported in this document. This report is an extension of deliverable D6.3 which was issued in december 2007. It closes the reporting of work-package 6 for the second phase of the EMANICS network of excellence.
