Ruby update
'ruby update' is a ruby script which helps people who install their packages from source keep their packages up to date. It does not attempt to install anything on its own, but simply scans your file system and lets you know if there is an updated version of a particular program. rupdate can only check the status of those programs for which it has been hard-coded to check.
