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.

openQA v2 test, fix, deploy

an invention by bmwiedemann

openqa.opensuse.org is still running on the older v1 version necessitating extra maintenance (and bringing confusion to people about which version is the right one to use). As part of this hackweek 10, we want to test kvm and alternative backends (vbox, kvm2usb) in openQA v2, fix them if needed and finally deploy the current version.

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

a project by duwe

Building on top of <a href="http://rdimitrov.twistedsanity.net/blog/show.php?entry=Microcontroller%20Class%20D%20Amplifier,%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.

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.

supportconfig database

an invention by leonardocf

The supportconfig utility is used by support teams to collect all information needed to troubleshoot a system in one shot. 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.
