XIDL

This is a package put together by Jason X. Prochaska, Joe Hennawai, and Scott Burles to reduce spectra from a number of instruments. In particular, there is a package called LowRes which can be used to reduce LRIS spectra. This includes a library of calibration files and some special purppose software.

DEEP2

This is the package the DEEP team put together for reducing their data. It has many useful features, it is completely automated, and optimized for reducing 1200 line DEIMOS data.

Dan Kelson's Package

Dan Kelson of OCIW has put together a large package of Python software that can reduce data from a number of spectrographs, ranging from echelles to low resolution multi-slit data. The software is completely self-contained.

Bogus

This is a set of IRAF scripts put together by Dan Stern, Adam Stanford and Andy Bunker. Currently, Dan Stern does much of the maintenence. Like with Matt Auger's package, this is mostly self-contained but written for a single purpose, to reduce multi-slit LRIS data. The big advantages are that it is fast but produces published data. This is very handy for use at the telescope.
