Bring up Linux on Allwinner A23

a project by rmax

Non-Android Linux can already be booted on several devices that are based on CPUs from Allwinner, such as the A10 and A13, but support for the newer A23 is still incomplete. I want to use this Hackweek to work with the folks of the sunxi and Lima projects (http://linux-sunxi.org/, http://limadriver.org/) to get Linux up and running on an A23 based tablet.

Gerrit CLI review tool

a project by iartarisi

Gerrit is used for code reviews by openstack and its related projects (e.g. chef cookbooks). The web interface is too slow when you get 100 changes to review each day. It would be nice to have a faster CLI. There are already some python client libraries available. I am thinking about either doing this as a standalone application with python and something like ncurses or an emacs/lighttable plugin. https://github.com/mapleoin/gerrit-el

GCC aggregate tracking

a project by jamborm

Currently GCC relies only on the most generic alias analysis when attempting to track data in aggregates in interprocedural (IPA) optimizations. In the course of this project I plan to revive patches for using simple escape analysis to track all data which do not have their address escaped and use that information to track constants within them, analyze the impact on a number of benchmarks and submit them to GCC trunk.

Dice - A light weight build service

a project by sax2

The idea is simple. Dice is a light weight build service for KIWI images with full control over the build power by the user. At SUSE we have the buildservice which is the full professional version of a build service for packages, images and also products. As a normal user I can provide input and I get some output but I have no control what happens with my data, when it's being processed and where it's being processed. That's by design and works great, thus not meant negatively. I'm a 100% fan of the buildservice

Make ruby-ui usable for YaST

an idea by dmacvicar

ruby-ui was a hackweek project with jreidinger to make libyui (YaST text/graphical engine) usable from pure-ruby without going through YCP. We experimented a bit extreme trying to make the usage of SLIM templates possible. It kind of worked.

investigate how kernel live patching works

a project by herbert0890

kGraft is SUSE Labs answer to the rising need for being able to patch the running kernel without rebooting the system. I think this kind of tool is very cool, so by this hackweek chance, I want to investigate it how it works and how it was implemented. And also by this chance, I hope I can improve my ability of kernel hacking. If you are also interested in kernel live patching, please join this project together.

Telepresence bot

a project by chuller

Over lunch the machinery team was talking about telepresence and mobile solutions and I came up with the idea of abusing a cheap wifi controlled toy tank as base for such a project. So here I am, having a cheap remote toy spy tank sitting on my desktop - waiting to be hacked :)

Say Hi!

an idea by aplank

Imagine you are sitting in the subway and suddenly the woman of your dreams sits down next to you. You are thinking hard about what to say to her, but since you are too shy she gets out three stops later and you never see her again. What if you both would have had an application running on your phones, to help you come over that awkward situation of just saying "Hi!"? How does it work?
