Hack Week 22 Monday 30 January - Friday 03 February 2023
Hack Week is the time SUSE employees experiment, innovate & learn interruption-free for a whole week! Across teams or alone, but always without limits.
A SUSE tradition since 2007, Hack Week has brought together hundreds of hackers around the globe to collaborate on open source. Learn more about Hack Week.

Easy openSUSE Upgrade
The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.
Port some classic game to Linux
Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

Create an ALP based Leap replacement. (Grassy Knoll)
Edit: This project has been mostly successful and the discussion has now moved to the factory mailing list, you can see the contents of the first post in the comments below. https://firstname.lastname@example.org/thread/YRHRI7IXZ7VIA55J6DBP4PU6FJDEHSLA/
early stage kdump support
When we experience a early boot crash, we are not able to analyze the kernel dump, as user-space wasn't able to load the crash system. The idea is to make the crash system compiled into the host kernel (think of initramfs) so that we can create a kernel dump really early in the boot process.
