Disk operations should not stale the system

an idea by pmladek

It happens from time to time that my system is less responsible. It is usually caused by extensive disk operations, e.g. searching disk for something, moving a lot of data. A solution would be to run these problematic tasks with ionice. But I think that desktop user should not need to take care of this. Also some of the operations are even caused by system tools and normal user has problems to affect it. I wonder if we could somehow improve the desktop setting or it it would even need some hacks into the scheduler. I have just heard that this should be fined in the last kernels. But I also heard that it still does not work well, for example when copying from/to USB memory stick.

detect and visualise git commits' patch-based dependencies

a project by aspiers

It is well-known that two git commits within a single repo can be independent from each other, by changing separate files to each other, or changing separate parts of the same file(s). Conversely when a commit changes a line, it is "dependent" on not only the commit which last changed that line, but also any commits which were responsible for providing the surrounding lines of context, because without those previous versions of the line and its context, the commit's diff would not cleanly apply. As with most dependency relationships, these form a directed acyclic graph. Sometimes it is useful to understand the nature of parts of this graph; for example when porting a commit "A" between git branches via git cherry-pick, it can be useful to programmatically determine in advance the minimum number of other dependent commits which would also need to be cherry-picked to provide the context for commit "A" to cleanly apply.

I've rewritten the parser with LALR and all the intermediate part before transfer it to Tree-IL which is another iR before CPS. Besides, I'm trying to add type-inferencing and partial-evaluation for Lua specific optimizing. Although there's partial-evaluator in Guile backend, it's a generic one for all the front-end languages.

Warp speed for virtualization CI testing

a project by jfehlig

The virtualization team's automated testing has a long history. It was born in the old Novell Integration Test framework. The virtualization lab ran an instance of this framework for many years. Over time, those who knew the framework left the company, taking their knowledge and leaving little documentation behind. As our testing needs increased, we found the old framework insufficient, but saw little value in improving it given the available open source CI frameworks. Before burying ourselves in SLE12 development, we took some time to move our automated tests under control of a Jenkins instance running in our lab. Tests were configured to run when new packages landed in our SLE12 devel project, ensuring our queued SLE12 submissions were continuously tested. But more is needed.

Support for WiFi-enabled Canon cameras in gphoto

a project by michal-m

I have a Canon PowerShot S120, which allows for browsing / copying photos over WiFi. There are apps for Android, iOS, and Windows to do that. The protocol uses upnp to discover the camera and the smartphone/computer and them some HTTP-based protocol. I have some code using libupnp for the discovery and a perl script that is capable of transfering one file, but it's far from complete. Plus, I need to refresh my memory, because the last commit is from January :-(. Now, there seems to be some support for such cameras in gphoto already. So the plan is to dive into gphoto and use what I learned about the protocol to fix the gphoto support. If you own some other WiFi-enabled Canon camera supported by the CameraWindow software, let me know.

Video presence system for distributed teams

a project by ancorgs

Those working remotely or managing a distributed team know it: face time is invaluable. The former openSUSE team has been using http://sqwiggle.com to keep in touch and Google hangout to hold a stand up meeting every morning. We like the Sqwiggle approach. Although the last updates have made it worse, the concept of having a peep to your colleagues' desks to know if they are there (even if they are working hard or just talking to someone) and the possibility of starting a video conversation just clicking on the face shot can do a lot in reducing distances (and in killing the temptation of working naked for home-officers).

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.

Hell-O-Kitty

an idea by coolo

HWinterstellar happens a week before halloween, so my project is to create a Hell-o-Kitty.

There are various 3D-Models e.g. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:184363 - and adding some LEDs that blink using a tinyDuino into it should be very possible during hackweek.

SeaMonkey extension (for forgetting passwords)

a project by pcerny

SeaMonkey is the successor of the Mozilla Suite. The mail client allows connections over POPv3 and IMAPv4. In some cases one wants to leave the program running for longer periods of time, but once the mail client has password for a mail server it just stays connected. In case of "keep everything on server" profiles this means that the mail may stay accessible even when the machine is left unattended (which it often is). The purpose of the extension is to enable requesting the client to forget mail server passwords, so that the mail is no longer accessible without entering it again. http://www.seamonkey-project.org/

experiments with Pebble smartwatch, including writing a SUSECon application for it

a project by fcrozat

Pebble smartwatch is a nice gadget I own and I'd like to start playing with it at the code level. One goal would be to create a SUSECon / conference application for it, allowing to choose which talks I will attend and make sure the watch will notify me in advance a session will begin.

a project by vlewin

Write a simple command line tool for getting the open pull request from github and put it into a trello card. The tool should periodically update a list of pull request. In addition it would be great to have a connection between the trello card and github pull request.

Release DAPS 2.0

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by teh SUSE documentation team. The official DAPS release is 1.1.7. SUSE internally DAPS 2.0 rc2 has been released. A few issues need to be fixed (mainly closing open bugs and adding missing test cases). The goal of this project is to fix these issues, so DAPS 2.0 can be publicly released.
