[ARM] Ceph on AArch64

an idea by algraf

Octopuses have many ARMs, so we should definitely allow them to run on them too! Today, we don't have working Ceph packages for AArch64, but already solid interest from customers asking us about it. It would be great to be able to give them something to play with.

Write a fault tolerant disk copy tool with file system specific plugins

an idea by j_gross

When my laptop disk started to show read errors I searched for a tool capable to save the contents of the disk (multiple systems on it with different file system types). I couldn't find anything which would do a copy of the disk skipping unused areas and tolerating I/O-errors, so I ended up in re-installing all systems after I got a new disk. The ideal solution would be some clever combination of dd_rescue and tar which could be put on a live-CD like gparted and be able to save the disk in question. To save a 500GB disk with 200GB data on it the tool should require only some 200GB of empty disk space, not the full 500GB of the physical disk to be saved.

Package VSFTPD with Chroot based on Group Membership

an idea by HaxxonHAx

Although SFTP is the preferred choice for non-public text-based file transfers, some agencies still use FTP. ProFTPD and VSFTPD are among the two top brands of FTP that include a Chrooting system. ProFTPD focuses more on public FTP, such that you can chroot based on a simple path (a la any anonymous FTP). VSFTPD gives the flexibility of chrooting each user into a jail based on the user's home directory. The chrooting system is based on a file in which one specifies the users that you want to chroot. Maintaining this file is key to the chroot system included with VSFTPD. This becomes a problem if one has over 1000 users that need to be maintained (added,removed,changed). This project will provide a chroot system based on a group membership, in which you specify the group that you want chrooted, and when you want a user chrooted, you can easily put them into the group. NOTE: VSFTPD ( has not been maintained since 2012. I've attempted to contact the currently listed developers for taking over and maintaining the project, but have yet to hear a response.

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.

Protect disk devices from concurrent use in the libvirt libxl hypervisor driver

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt qemu hypervisor driver has long supported protecting disk devices from concurrent use via libvirt's lock manager interface. Xen used to support the same functionality in the old xend toolstack, but dropped support in the new libxl toolstack. The Xen community decided, rightly so, that this functionality is best provided by a higher-level management tool, e.g. libvirt. This project aims to provide integration between libvirt's lock manager and the libxl hypervisor driver, essentially reintroducing support for disk device protection in the Xen management stack.

Brand new UI for deploying OpenStack in Crowbar

virtio-serial in OpenStack

a project by e_bischoff

Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP. I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.

A programming language exploration

a project by KGronlund

I would like to have a programming language that has the performance characteristics of C, but integrates some programming language features that I like from other languages. My first goal would be to start with a language that is very limited in scope and compiles directly to C, and step by step add to it. There are a lot of programming languages, but very few that handles memory as an explicit resource. To be able to explicitly manage memory is a very powerful technique and essential for applications such as high performance video games.

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 ( 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.
