Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

openSUSE Landing Page Prototype

a project by hennevogel

www.opensuse.org is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have! It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.

Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

libvirt TCK

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt TCK provides a framework for performing testing of the integration between libvirt drivers, the underlying virt hypervisor technology, related operating system services and system configuration. The idea (and name) is motivated by the Java TCK. Currently the libvirt TCK is not fully packaged for SUSE and the test suite itself contains a lot of Redhat-isms. Mike Latimer and Jim Fehlig will work on properly packaging libvirt TCK (it has a LOT of perl dependencies) and patching it to work better with SUSE virtualization hosts and SUSE guest operating systems. It has traditionally focused on the KVM hypervisor, so there might be some progress made to make it work better with Xen too.

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).

YaST module for IRST

a project by mlin7442

Intel Rapid Start Technology(IRST) is a firmware mechanism enables your system to get up and running faster from sleep, saving time and power consumption, it will cause the system to wake up from S3 and suspend to S4(with SSD)[1]. Currently kernel 3.11 already support it[2], however there haven't a graphic tool to control its wakeup event and timeout, like as similar tool on Windows[3]. This Hackweek I'll create a YaST module to handle those parameters. [1] http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/26022.html

The objective of this project is to create a central repository of supportconfig tarballs. To do so, we're going to develop a set of tools to automatically fetch tarballs from known sources, parse the information, import the useful parts into an SQL database and expose it in a Web front-end where users can run some simple queries.
