Porting SHA1 codes to EFI stub environment

a project by joeyli

For Hibernate Signature Verification - HMAC version, I need a hash algorithm in EFI stub environment before ExitBootServices() to mix / mess random seed from different sources (rdtsc, rdrand...) for generating the HMAC key to sign the hibernate image in runtime environment. There have no any hash functions provides by EFI services, so need implement it in EFI stub. I choice SHA1 to be the target algorithm because currently I choice HMAC-SHA1 to be the algorithm to generate signature of hibernate image.

kGraft: allow to handle more patches in parallel

a project by pmladek

Current kGraft implementation allows to apply new patch only when the previous one is applied to the whole system. Every task is handled separately and it needs to wait for a safe place to switch. It might take a while, especially when the task is sleeping. Therefore it would be great to allow to apply more patches in parallel. It is not trivial because different tasks might be in different world, so the slow stub has to be clever and choose the right one without taking any lock...

Goal of that project is to come up with a best practice guide and to eventually set expectations on what's possible from a development point of view. Results should be documented in a central internal location and announced to all relevant parties.

Ceph crushmap visualization

a project by qakapil

The CRUSH algorithm determines how to store and retrieve data by computing data storage locations. CRUSH empowers Ceph clients to communicate with OSDs directly rather than through a centralized server or broker. With an algorithmically determined method of storing and retrieving data, Ceph avoids a single point of failure, a performance bottleneck, and a physical limit to its scalability. CRUSH requires a map of your cluster, and uses the CRUSH map to pseudo-randomly store and retrieve data in OSDs with a uniform distribution of data across the cluster. This project aims at creating graphs of the crush map, for better visualization of the Ceph cluster.

I'd like to add a 433MHz receiver transmitter module to my raspberry pi - I know there are some kits, but this will require some hardware poking and soldering and I'm looking forward to it. The goal will be to receive the signal of some remote temperature and humidity sensors, decode the signal - understand their data structure and display and log them accordingly.

Keep release notes in installer in a pop-up

a project by jsrain

Especially when using multiple extensions, selecting release notes of a specific extension is not easy (scrolling the tab). Put it to a pop-up (like help) while not blocking the package installation.

rewrite YaST2 AppArmor

an idea by cboltz

The YaST2 AppArmor module is still based on the Immunix::* perl modules that are deprecated upstream and therefore causes some maintenance "fun". Upstream AppArmor utils were rewritten in python. The idea is to rewrite the YaST2 AppArmor module to use the python modules or JSON interfaces.

Zypper dup migration from sle11-sp3 to sle12

an idea by oertel

During all of sle10 and sle11 it was possible to do a migration via zypper dup from one to the next service packs (and with some care even from sle10 to sle11). Due to some dependency problems this is currently not possible from sle11-sp3 to sle12. A official upgrade via installation media would blow up our nice small jeos installations from 300 to over 900 packages, which is undesirable as well. Currently I'm trying to get this running via a sle12 rpm source built on sle11 (plus some dependencies), next step is probably to get enough of libzypp and yast parts, not sure yet where exactly this is heading.
