Tweak btrfs to run on SMR drives

a project by hreinecke

Having gotten access to some SMR prototypes it should be possible to tweak btrfs to run natively on those devices. Using SSD mode helps a lot, but there is still some work to be done. So this will be a good chance to learn something about the inner details of btrfs and see if I can get it to run on SMR drives.

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.

openSUSE 13.2 ARM hackathon

a project by algraf

openSUSE 13.2 is taking shape on ARM, but we need to make sure we smoothen its edges to make an actual release out of it. The goal of this project is to make sure all devices we should run on actually work and that the last few packages necessary for productive use of ARM devices work properly on 13.2.

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.

Add support for RandR 1.4 (additional GPUs) into KDE display configuration

a project by michalsrb


RandR is X11 extension for configuring monitors and since version 1.4 also secondary GPUs. These secondary GPUs can either provide additional monitors to output to or can render individual applications instead of the main GPU. (Or even both at once.) Once a secondary GPU is configured to do render offloading, applications can be started with DRI_PRIME=<id> environment variable to actually render on it instead of the main one. There are also USB GPUs (dummy framebuffers) that can be hot-plugged.

SSH Connection Manager

a project by jschmid1

My idea was created out of a need in my current team(Hardware-enablement). Whilst excessive SLE testing on multiple machines i was forced to remember tons of ips to debug remotely. Since i had to reinstall new releases over and over again, ips differ, obviously. My approach to make life easier would be to create a simple cli to manage and administrate multiple connections on my local machine.

Port kGraft to more architectures

a project by vojtech_pavlik

Implement improved ftrace infrastructure for PPC64LE (goal 1), s390x (goal 2), ARM64 (goal 3) that is able to support kGraft and doesn't have a performance impact. PPC64LE has an experimental (untested) patch by Dinar Valeev already, s390x works, but has a 10% performance impact on the system, ARM64 is entirely untouched.

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 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

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.

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.

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.
