error DB

an idea by cyberiad

Create a database of common and not so common error messages, warnings, etc. to provide references to bugzilla, TIDs, wikis, etc. When working in support you often run into issues that have unspecific or misleading error message. Google might be helpful, but especially with kernel dumps, longer traces, complex issues this doesn't help.

Create Quickstart for OpenStack on OpenStack (Triple-O)

a project by dirkmueller

Currently, opensuse-quickstart sets up a one-machine Cloud based on OpenStack, either with KVM or virtualisation. In order for bootstrapping further hosts, it would be much easier to set up only a bare-metal cloud on one machine, and PXE boot a 2nd machine via OpenStack Nova/Ironic.

openSUSE & SLE support for Puppet modules located at the Forge

a project by tampakrap

Description

One of the PuppetLabs guys is trying to enforce best practices on administering Puppet modules, by using base modules and build services and roles on top of them. That way we can re-use external / third-party modules from forge.puppetlabs.com, ideally without touching them at all. He names that "the Lego approach". Full article.

Add standardized REST interface to Hamsta

a project by pkacer

Hamsta currently lacks a standardized network interface that would allow other systems accessing its capabilities. There is a custom network interface with text-parsing based protocol that is poorly documented and needs to be implemented on the client side to be usable. This interface does not use any standardized way of communication or library. This project suggests to add a standardized web service interface (let us call it API) to Hamsta. Expected attributes are following.

Simple stretchable storage cloud

an idea by hreinecke

A project idea I've been carrying around for several years now. Based upon the 'referrals' concept from SPC-4 it should be rather easy to build up large volumes spread over several nodes. I'm thinking of an iSCSI target here, which gets updated via a corosync engine with any volume updates from the cluster.

OpenStack Tempest Dashboard

Tempest is a functional test suite used for OpenStack. It would normally run in the order of 800 tests over the period of 2 hours on a newly installed OpenStack infrastructure. Tempest is written in Python and uses nosetests as the basis of its test framework. There is a large amount of verbose that is streamed to the log file and there is also considerable ambiguity in the overall success rate.

Zeroconf with others (GNOME Shell, Firefox, Wayland and others)

a project by cxiong

Zeroconf/Bonjour/Avahi is a very interesting technique that targets at freeing users of services from tedious IP-based network configuration by automatic-distributed address-assigning, name-assigning and service discovery/browsing. It's named officially as zeroconf, Bonjour is the implementation in OS X, iOS and Windows, while Avahi is for Unix-like system. However, while Bonjour is popular and widely used in Apple products, few users take advantage of Avahi in Linux world and the number of applications that do integrate Avahi are still just a few and this feature is not often used.

one of the top features a distribution must always ship in a working state is wireless. Yet we have no way to test it in an automated way. To be able to do that via openQA we need qemu to emulate a wireless adapter. Whether it's emulating existing hardware or implements some virtio device that only works on Linux doesn't matter.

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.

openSUSE Landing Page Prototype

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.
