Rewrite maintenance's dependency checkers in Python

an invention by leonardocf

We currently have a set of shell scripts that verify if patches can be properly installed on multiple combinations of base products, extensions and modules. These scripts are all written in shell and are annoying to maintain, as configuration and code is all mixed up. My objectives are: (a) to rewrite all the scripts in a single tool, in Python; (b) separate code and configuration, so that adding a new product/SP requires only editing a configuration file; and (c) make the checkers more flexible, allowing execution from the command line against specific repositories (use case: checking one single maintenance incident before submitting it to QAM).

Experiment with cluster simulation in Erlang

a project by KGronlund

I want to learn Erlang and see if it makes sense to use it in the context of High Availability (it would certainly seem like it). As a learning project, I want to try to reimplement my koi project (https://github.com/krig/koi) in Erlang. Koi is a minimal cluster manager I wrote in C++.

Use Relax-and-Recover (rear) as generic installer in the plain SUSE installation system

Task manager in Elixir/Erlang

a project by vmoravec

Elixir is a Ruby-ish dialect of Erlang with meta-programming capabilities, this is my first project using it: pedro . The idea is to create a task manager that would organize tasks (jobs) and manage them in projects. It will be running locally, remotely or both in multi-node setup, will provide CLI, have web UI relying on http and websockets. It makes use of erlang OTP, web framework phoenix that is inspired by rails. Author of elixir and main contributor to phoenix is Jose Valim, he's also the author of devise rubygem and former contributor to rails.

Start with fault tolerant Xen server prototype

a project by j_gross

A normal Xen server today has many single points of failure. Those can be reduced by disaggregating Dom0 into multiple domains (xenstore, driver domains, admin domain). Following this path to it's logical end will lead to a setup where the running domUs won't be depending on Dom0 any more, so Dom0 itself can be made restartable. This project aims at beginning with a prototype by setting up a configuration with a xenstore domain and a driver domain for networking. This will allow running a pv-domU with network resources only (nfs or iscsi root file system) no longer needing Dom0 to run.
