HMC support to openstack

an invention by k0da

Currently compute supports only IVM managed pSeries machines. In that case machines are not managed for central place. There shouldn't be a big deal to implement HMC support as IVM commands are pretty much similar to HMC.

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

Rouslan does some dithering and noise shaping, but I'm convinced that proper interpolation would sound better. The ATtiny is too slow to do even cubic interpolation so I'll move that into the host.

Enhance zypp installer to report file conflicts and to support rpm %posttrans scripts.

an invention by mlandres

This would fix the two 'biggest flaws' in the current software installation workflow. Basic support for detecting file conflicts is already provided by libsolv, but it needs to be integrated into libzypp. In order to support rpm %posttrans behavior, zypp needs to collect these scripts during package installation and execute them at the end of it's transaction.

Booting to btrfs snapshots with grub2

a project by michael-chang

The bootloader menu has to be able to list snapshots created with tagged attribute by snapper or other tools. These attributes control how snapshots are displayed and organized in the boot menu. All the changes are reflected in real time, that is when a snapshot is created it's ready to boot without the hassle to call grub2-mkconfig to refresh menu. The operation and navigating to the snapshot is intuitive and out of box and booting is even more easy to hit the button. The hackweek is based on current implementation to improve the code structure and testing, like code clean up and make it in better shape get upstreamed, improving the menu to use extended attribute to organize the boot menu with defined attributes which can be tagged by snapshot tools like snapper etc.

Optimize packing of objects required for migration to new container

a project by vuntz

Moving objects to a new container is a problem everyone in R&D has faced at least once in his life. It requires a very advanced algorithm to pack the many different objects (which are generally heterogeneous, with different uses, types, weights and sizes), before the packs can then be transferred to the new container, generally through a dedicated bus. We can identify some usual cases: * In the worst case, the new container can be smaller than the old one, and a garbage collector is generally used to help find a solution that satisfies the problem (a SAT solver can be used to determine which objects should be destroyed).

Climbing Ticklist

an invention by j_renner

Ticklist is a web application enabling users to record their ascents of climbing routes as well as to maintain their personal list of currently projected routes. My implementation went from working alpha back to pre-alpha status (~ basic things not working) while migrating parts of the codebase (knockout.js -> angular.js). The goal of this hackweek project was therefore to finish this migration and fix the basic features in order to make the app useful at least for personal usage. The current technology stack is node, express, sequelize, jade (templating), angular and twitter bootstrap. Lots of future features come to my mind, like showing advanced statistics, integration with social networks, support bouldering ticklists as well, location based stuff, and so on.

Podcast Studio

a project by KGronlund

I've been running a podcast together with two friends for over a year now. We have a recording and mixing process going, but unfortunately it involves using non-free operating systems and software all the way through. It is probably going to be hard to get away from using the things we use for the actual recording part for a while, but one thing I feel should be perfectly doable in openSUSE is the mastering bit. In theory, Audacity could work for this, but it is old and clunky and doesn't do real-time filtering, making it annoying to use.

Reduce the number of builds in the openSUSE Build Service

In case any of the source files changed, openSUSE Build Service rebuilds the dependent packages regardless of whether that particular modification affects the dependency. This makes our resources footprint bigger (and the electrical power bills higher). It also affects users, because every new package build causes the package manager to include that package in the next update thus consuming network bandwidth and resources of users' computers.
