New Puppet Master for the openSUSE and internal SUSE infrastructure

a project by tampakrap

A new Puppet Master will be set up for the openSUSE and public SUSE infrastructure. We will need to move the puppet code from the old server to a new Gitlab instance, deploy it to the new box with r10k, and perform syntax, validation and RSpec testing through ci.opensuse.org

Tool to update images in an OpenStack Cloud

an idea by tbechtold

Currently there is an internal OpenStack instance (cloud.suse.de). Most of the images there are outdated so it's common that everybody just uploads a new image. Would be nice to have a tool which updates at least the most common images (SLE11&12, openSUSE, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora) automatically once a day. So ater spawning a new VM, there would be no need to first update (and maybe reboot) the machine or upload a new image before you can start to work.

The future of systems management

a project by j_renner

A new web UI for saltstack, possibly the future of systems management. The official salt UI halite is now officially retired and saltpad is still very young and in alpha state. In addition to the creation of a new frontend to salt, the goal could be to work towards a full replacement for existing systems management solutions like spacewalk, including the migration (minionification) of systems from there.

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.

Integrate e1000e into the Linux Kernel Backports project

a project by benjamin_poirier

The current approach to having new hardware support and features in SLE kernels it to integrate changes to individual drivers from the mainline kernel back into the SLE kernel. The Linux Kernel Backports project (https://backports.wiki.kernel.org/) in comparison has an approach which consists in adding a shim layer between unmodified mainline drivers and older kernel interfaces. This project has its roots in wireless drivers. It currently supports only a handful of old ethernet adapters. The goal of this hackweek project is to integrate support for the Intel 1Gb pci-express ethernet driver e1000e into the Backports project. This particular driver was chosen because it is widely used and modern while not being exotic.
