Finalize geozip gem

an idea by tboerger

I have started many months ago a project named geozip ( and i would like to finalize it. I want to parse openstreetmap files and generate polygon geo coordinates for zip codes. After processing it should be exported to multiple file formats to get them imported into databases for various projects.

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.

Kernel oops decoder

a project by benjamin_poirier

Read in a crash or oops-style backtrace and access DWARF information to output the current content of the stack and registers in term of symbols, and the the crash commands to dump/pretty print them. In other words, when looking at a crash dump, answer the questions "Which variable is currently stored in $rax? What is the structure of the stack? Which variable is stored at $rsp+16?"

Support for the SMBus ARP protocol

a project by jdelvare

The SMBus standard specifies an address resolution protocol (SMBus ARP.) It has two key features : * Handle I2C slave address collisions. If two SMBus slaves would use the same I2C address, ARP lets one of them pick a different address to avoid the address collision.

openQA framework studying and improvement.

an idea by bchou

openQA is a set of utilities designed to test operative systems in an fully automated way. I would like to get started from the Tutorial and get familiar the whole process (openQA of webUI, auto-inst test modules, specific cases writing ) and detail framework. It would be accelerating the test cases creation in the future.

Aarch64 was added into UEFI spec recently, and the patches already landed into edk2. The goal of this project is to make an UEFI image to run on the Foundation Model and package Aarch64 edk2 in OBS, so that everyone can just download the latest image and play it.

Enable python in crash and use it for most functions

an idea by jeff_mahoney

Crash originated in a older version of gdb. Since then, gdb has added python to its scripting options. By converting much of the crash functionality to python, we can make it easier to extend existing functionality and allow our customers to do the same.

Add MOKx for blacklisting any specific hash of kernel module (Hackweek 10 in Taipei)

a project by joeyli

Add MOKx for blacklisting any specific hash of kernel module. For kernel module sign function, similar to dbx in UEFI, we need a MOKx for blacklisting kernel module that can avoid direct revoke the modsign key in MOK or kernel.

ohai plugin for querying details like serial numbers from hard drives in chef-client nodes

a project by bigironman

Gathering detailed information about hardware in an automated way with chef using an ohai plugin enhances transparency about the hardware being used in a datacenter. The idea is to write a plugin for ohai that gatheres information from hard drives used in a node that runs chef-client.

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).

SUSE Manager/Spacewalk client debug/test shell

an idea by dmacvicar

When developing for SUSE Manager, it gets tiresome to setup clients in order to debug and test with clients. The idea is to create a nice shell (with history, command completion, colors) that allows to simulate being a client.

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.

salien - convert deb/pkgbuild/... into .spec

an idea by bmwiedemann

There is the alien program to convert binary packages between various formats, but it would be even nicer to be able to take a debian or archlinux build spec and convert it into an rpm .spec file. Apart from the syntax conversion, this will need some mapping for package names, so that BuildRequires and Requires match the target.

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

a project by duwe

Building on top of <a href=",%20Rev2&quot;&gt;Rouslan Dimitrov's Microcontroller Class D Amplifier</a>, I developed the idea to feed the power amplifier with PCM data directly. 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.
