'Caspar' offers Makefile snippets for tasks like installing files maintained using a version control system, or typesetting documents in certain markup languages. If you need to maintain and distribute lots of files, you will probably find 'Caspar' useful. It can also automate typesetting if you write documents in a markup language like LaTeX, DocBook XML, DocBook SGML or POD.
