bug screening helper

a project by bmwiedemann

The Problem: many bugs filed for openSUSE go to the screening-team by default and often remain there for weeks, so that developers (who would be interested in analyzing or fixing these bugs) do not learn about them. However, the screening process is a hard one

Packages for vagrant

an idea by tboerger

To really start with vagrant within the company and our company it would be awesome to create real SUSE packages for vagrant and some other cool and important plugins. It's not that easy like it sounds because vagrant runs within the upstream rpm in an embedded ruby container that needs to be fixed for our system packages.

Resistance is Futile - Using zypper to "upgrade" CentOS/RHEL to openSUSE/SLES

a project by RBrownSUSE

zypper is magic

A number of experiments suggest that it may be feasible to run zypper from an openSUSE 'live' media against a 'foreign' RPM based OS installation (eg. CentOS) and then 'zypper dup' to openSUSE

Replace the SUSE Manager client stack with an existing configuration management software

The SUSE Manager client stack is rather simple, in regular intervals it asks the SUSE Manager Server for scheduled actions and executes them.

Improve ftpboot for z/VM

a project by azouhr

Installing linux on z/VM requires some way to punch kernel/initrd/parmfile into the reader which in turn can be booted. In a previous hackweek, I wrote a small tool, that makes it possible to do so directly from the internal ftp server. this has been proven valuable but not perfect. This tool should be improved to

Git like subcommand support for zypper

an idea by mlandres

Add subcommand support for zypper. That is, if 'zypper foo' is not found, look for %{_libexec}/zypper/zypper-foo just like git does. Then those subcommands could be binaries linked to libzypp or just scripts.

Teach zypp to query/download/mirror multiarch repos

an idea by mlandres

Zypp offers only those items within a repository, which are 'installable', i.e. 'compatible' with the systems architecture. But there are several use cases, up to mirroring a whole repository, where people would like to query, resolve and download items of foreign architecture without actually installing them. Offering those items in libzypp should be quite easy, but we must also make sure nothing 'stupid' happens if zypper also sees uninstallable items in the pool.

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

Implement BREAK for pseudo-terminals

a project by ptesarik

This will greatly enhance the usefulness of QEMU virtual serial ports, because the Linux kernel interprets a break on the serial console as a SysRq, but there is currently no way to pass this signal over a pseudo-terminal.

Reduce the number of builds in the openSUSE Build Service

a project by dmuhamedagic

In case any of the source files changed, openSUSE Build Service rebuilds the dependent packages regardless of whether that particular modification affects the dependency. This makes our resources footprint bigger (and the electrical power bills higher). It also affects users, because every new package build causes the package manager to include that package in the next update thus consuming network bandwidth and resources of users' computers.

You might know MirrorBrain already: our download redirector and Torrent/Metalink generator used u.a. on download.opensuse.org. It's really a great tool that plays a hidden key role inside the openSUSE infrastructure.

openSUSE Landing Page Prototype

a project by hennevogel

www.opensuse.org is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have! It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.
