A number of brothers offer freeware software for download and use by the brotherhood. These programs are almost always copyrighted by the brothers who wrote them, so it's not proper to host them on other sites. But there is no charge for the software. Some brothers in the group have a link on site where users can make contributions but these are not required. Some have no such link at all.

Congregation Publisher File — Software designed to help congregation secretaries and service group overseers. DOS based but runs fine under any version of Windows including XP, Vista and Windows 7.
From the site: Congregation Publisher File, computer software designed to help track publisher activity within a congregation. In addition to providing in-depth publisher analysis for service overseers, congregation secretaries will appreciate CPF’s support of the Society’s S-1 and S-10 reports. Perhaps the most powerful aspect of CPF is its ability to generate a wide range of custom-made summaries at a variety of levels. Would you like to know exactly what the congregation and each field service group did last month? Or over the last 6 months? Would you like to know what the elders and ministerial servants did over the last 6 months? Or how each pioneer is doing so far for the service year? CPF can provide answers to these and many other questions. (Freeware provided by brother Ron Anderson for 20 years)
