package inputlirc (or add it to existing lirc package)

a project by wiederda

inputlirc is superior to previous lirc input daemon as it can monitor multiple input sources at the same time. This is needed for some new remote controls that appear as two devices, providing both virtual keypresses as well as mouse clicks. Since I'm too lazy to always build the package manually, I would like to have it available for OpenSUSE.

Take a stroll in dependency hell

a project by jgleissner

While packaging node.js modules, which often depend on specific versions of other node.js modules, sometimes many of them, you easily end up in dependency hell, and maintaining an OBS project with a few hundred of those modules can be a tedious task. So the idea for this project is to familiarise myself with how exactly dependencies are managed on package and repository level, check out what tools exist to drill into dependency data, and hack something that helps keeping OBS repositories in a dependency consistent state.

fix performance problem in soundkonverter

a project by wiederda

I'm using soundkonverter a lot (my whole music collection is flac, but for the car or my children I prefer mp3) and it is working fine. However when doing mass conversions, building the list of files to convert can take ages. It seems the filelist is being re-created for every title added. Debug it and try to fix it in order to speed up this operation.

Add test support to rpmbuild (and build service)

an idea by dmuhamedagic

Add test directives to the spec file which would instruct rpmbuild to run regression and unit tests for the package. rpmbuild should probably also get an option to run these tests. The interface could be exposed in the build service with the possibility to consider a package not passing its tests as failed to build.

Package DAPS for Debian using the BuildService

a project by tbazant

DAPS ( is a tool we use in the documentation team to create/validate/export/... docbook documents. It's currently available for SUSE and openSUSE systems, and I believe that packaging it for Debian GNU Linux would help both the DAPS and the Linux community (and me myself as I'm using Debian at home as well :-)

a project by wiederda

Package a basic, stripped down version of sysvinit for emergency cases, so you can repair a failed system without interference. My goal is not to replace systemd with sysvinit again, but to provide a sysvinit-base package that does not have any dependencies at all and can just be installed on any system. sysvinit will only be used in exception situations by specifying the kernel parameter "init=/sbin/init" or something like that. The package will come with the binary, a minimal inittab and a basic boot script that does only the really needed stuff. Experiment with an extension to have sysvinit execve systemd, so people can boot into their allmighty uber-daemon once the system has been fixed.

Broaden image segmentation functionality of OpenCV

a project by mbenes

OpenCV is an open source computer vision and image processing library ( During the hackweek I'd like to broaden a set of image segmentation algorithms in the library with at least the simplest ones. The indices for objective measuring of segmentation quality and first step for segmentation fusion might be other choices.

There are a few scripts around analysing isos and helping ReleaseManagers (and others) to achieve a great release. I'd like to see this all combined in one web overview, a kind of "Enterprise Service control ape" (ok, it's more an "Enterprise Control Center mokey", but that's not an acronym ;) ).

Package all available Qt-based libraries

an idea by cschum

There are many 3rd party libraries based on Qt. Inqlude collects them all. The goal of this project is to package them all, ideally automatically from the meta data provided by Inqlude. The build service provides all the tools we need for that and would even make it possible to provide packages for a multitude of Linux platforms and maybe even Windows. Interesting challenges ahead...

Learn and help learn

a project by kstreitova

I'm in SUSE for about a month and as a fresh graduate I had to learn a lot of stuff during this period. And there is a bunch of other things I will have to learn of course. Therefore I would like to use Hackweek to deepen my knowledge of various tools, processes, techniques or other packagers related stuff. However it would be quite a pity to hold the acquired information just to myself. So I would like to keep the result of my learning for further usage either by enhancing the Innerweb wiki, the public openSUSE wiki or by creating new wiki for packagers' purposes. Who can utilize this knowledge base? Newly employed packagers to learn important things quickly. Current packagers to share interesting techniques or hacks among them. Or just whoever else wants to quickly understand certain packagers' process or tool.

Win32 non-blocking IO for qemu-ga

an idea by kallan

The posix side of the qemu guest agent uses fcntl() with the O_NONBLOCK arg. Without the availability of fcntl() on the Win32 side of things, I would like to see if I can come up with an equivalent mechanism for doing non-blocking reads and writes using the overlapped approach in ReadFile() and WriteFile().
