Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

Scalability improvement for running tiedot database on SMP systems

an invention by guohouzuo

tiedot is a general purpose, document database engine designed for both embeddable usage and running stand-alone DB server, implemented in Go. Despite the effort of partitioning collection data and indexes, a single tiedot process still cannot scale beyond 4 CPU cores due to limitations of both data structure and Go runtime. Last year, an attempt began to partition data across multiple tiedot processes, and use IPC for communication and database logics. Initial benchmarks show promising scalability improvement using the new implementation. So let us complete the new implementation together, to bring the most scalable & embeddable DB engine for Go programs!

Splitting python-gammu out of Gammu

an invention by mcihar

In past it was needed these project to be developed together due to unstable API of Gammu. This is now stable and having python module in the code just makes the things harder. The code should be separated, use standard distutils and have testsuite. In future it should also support Python 3, but that's not the primary goal now. The work has already started:

Simple images in OBS

an invention by -miska-

As OBS can install various distributions, it should be in theory possible to abuse this functionality to create distribution independent way to create rootfs tarball. Done: https://github.com/openSUSE/obs-build/pull/166

SMBIOS 3.0 support in dmidecode

an invention by jdelvare

On February 12th, 2015, the DMTF released version 3.0.0 of the System Management BIOS Reference Specification. This update isn't just adding enumerated values to existing structures, as previous updates did. It is also introducing a new entry point format which allows for larger tables and structures. Support for this needs to be added to dmidecode. Additionally, reading the entry point and the table from /dev/mem is no longer possible on all systems, so some work is in progress to offer an alternative interface through sysfs. It would be great to finalize this and release a new version of dmidecode that would support both SMBIOS version 3.0 and this new kernel interface.

Porting Twinkle to Qt5

an invention by mkubecek

Twinkle, my favourite SIP client, seems no longer developed, has been accused of "bitrotting" and even dropped from some distributions. While I don't believe in bits actually rotting, there is one pressing issue: twinkle uses Qt3. While there are some patches reportedly allowing to build twinkle with Qt4, e.g. here, all seem to use a Qt3 compatibility layer of Qt4 which has been dropped in Qt5, AFAIK, so that those won't be very future-proof either.

an invention by sndirsch

Get more familar with Greasemonkey User Scripting, in particular with using the IITC framework, which manipulates Ingress Intel map. The goal is to create a plugin, which highlights portals on the map, which have more fields than links attached.

Bare metal testing in OpenQA

an invention by kwk

OpenQA uses the VNC protocol to interface with a test system. This limits test systems to be virtualized. Bare metal (physical) systems do not provide VNC out-of-the-box.

AppArmor utils: rewrite more rule types into classes

an invention by cboltz

While the python-based AppArmor utils (aa-logprof etc.) are much easier to understand and maintain than the old perl code, there are still some terribly long functions like parseprofiledata() in aa.py that are not too easy to understand. Also, using hasher() (a recursive array) as storage can have some strange side effects. Another problem is that test coverage isn't too good, especially for the bigger functions. I already wrote the CapabilityRule and CapabilityRuleset classes (and also the BaseRule and BaseRuleset classes) some months ago, and changed the code to use those classes. This code is already in upstream bzr.

KDE4/5 packages for SLE

an invention by alarrosa

I'll try to generate KDE4 and KDE Frameworks 5 packages for SLE12. After talking with plinnell and tittiatcoke, I refocused the project to generate mainly KDE4 packages and KDE5 packages if time allows it (instead of just KDE5 packages as I originally thought to do)

Update cpan modules in OBS

an invention by coolo

devel:languages:perl has 2662 packages, but many of them are outdated because it's just a fight no man can win to update them. So we update them whenver we hit a problem. But this is evil: I count 2662 packages in devel:languages:perl and 1188 of them are outdated. So I'll write a script... just as we did with gems

Getting OBS to build virt-builder repositories

an invention by cbosdonnat

virt-builder main repository contains quite a few distro images, but no opensuse one. The goal of this project is to make OBS able to create a virt-builder repository out of a few kiwi packages. Ideally this would later be used to provide some official opensuse images for virt-builder.
