error DB

an idea by cyberiad

Create a database of common and not so common error messages, warnings, etc. to provide references to bugzilla, TIDs, wikis, etc. When working in support you often run into issues that have unspecific or misleading error message. Google might be helpful, but especially with kernel dumps, longer traces, complex issues this doesn't help.

openSUSE for Firefly-RK3288

a project by a_faerber

The Firefly-RK3288 is the first SBC with the Rockchip RK3288 SoC, the first available chip with Cortex-A17 cores (32-bit ARMv7). I received such a board just in time for Hackweek Interstellar and will be looking into booting an upstream kernel with openSUSE 13.2/Factory rootfs.

openSUSE for IFC6540

a project by a_faerber

The Inforce Computing IFC6540 is an SBC with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC (32-bit ARMv7). I had previously brought up openSUSE on the IFC6410. A week before Hackweek Interstellar I got the IFC6540 to boot on serial console using the upstream-based Linaro integration branch, up to searching for the rootfs. Since USB and SATA support were still missing, my goal will be to prepare a MicroSD based rootfs to complete the bringup.

Charon: A planet-like feed aggregator

an idea by hennevogel

Charon (ˈʃærən) is intended for communities of people, institutions or companies who blog. It aggregates all the feeds of the community into a single feed which all the participants can read to stay informed. It's concept, a proven and popular communication method of the Free and Open Source Software community, and basic functionality is borrowed from the software planet. However, Charon adds a couple of nifty features like administration through your browser, user self-service, categories and personalized feeds.

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.

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 (https://security.appspot.com/vsftpd.html) 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.

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.

GCC Performance/Regression Dashboard

a project by marxin

For development purpose, it is very useful to have an infrastructure that can spot regressions based on commit base. Currently, our existing infrastructure runs mainly SPEC benchmark and is cumbersome from perspective of any further development. I would like to build a replacement that will combine buildbot framework with a custom web project (based on Django framework). The web project will be used both for submitting reports coming from a buildbot slave and for UI which will serve plots and data. If you want to inspire a bit more, please visit Chrome Performance Dashboard or Mozilla telemetry. I hope I can make a simple extendable project that is going to eventually replace existing implementation.

Adding Linux kernel firmware signature support

a project by mcgrof

The Linux kernel already has cryptographic support for signature verification on data. This is used to digitally sign kernel modules at build time, and verify integrity and provenance at load time. Likewise the 802.11 subsystem on the Linux kernel had historically in parallel prior to Linux's own kernel signing facility implemented and integrated support to verify file integrity and provenance for use on the Linux regulatory database. The 802.11 subsystem's components that provide this facility are CRDA and wireless-regdb. CRDA and wireless-regdb technically are split up as two separate trees for development, wireless-regdb helps provide the 802.11 regulatory database while CRDA exists as a udev helper to feed to the Linux kernel a regulatory domain when needed. By using a regulatory database in userspace the Linux kernel is able to get updates for regulatory rules without requiring a rebuild. Linux distributions need the digitally signed regulatory.bin file from wireless-regdb tree and the CRDA binary from the CRDA tree. Linux distributions often combine both into one package, some distributions separate the two. The regulatory database is digitally signed by the wireless-regdb maintainer, and distributions that have have compiled in support for digital signature support on CRDA verify the integrity of the file before feeding a regulatory domain to the Linux kernel. Since the kernel module signing facility was merged upstream on Linux we could replace both CRDA and wireless-regdb distribution mechanism by adding cryptographic file signature verification support on Linux on the firmware_class module which provides the APIs to load firmware, and having the regulatory.bin file merged and updated through the linux-firmware tree. Adding cryptographic signature verification support on the firmware APIs on Linux is the first step to replace CRDA and wireless-regdb's own signature functionality. The second step is to extend the firmware APIs to enable subsystems to customize cryptographic requirements.

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.
