[DOCU] Packaging, OBS, KIWI and OpenQA for a PHP project: BlueSpice Media Wiki

a project by mfeilner

Hallo Welt!, the company behind Blue Spice Media Wiki (an open source, subscription based enterprise wiki) is interested in howto package their PHP software, get it into OBS and into the whole workflow with openQA and learn how to write automated tests. This is such a generic task that I though documenting it might be worth an afternoon at hackweek together with Richard (openQA) and Darix (OBS and packaging). I'll reserve a meeting room, doc team will provide the documentation of this workflow in a "SUSE best practice guide"

Automated testing of accessibility

a project by coolo

The goal of openQA is "test as a QA engineer". But openQA has no ears - all we can test for are DTMF sounds. And even those are very bad. So my hackweek project is to do research on how to do proper sound verification. The keys are proper normalization of the volume and the sample rate.

As we know, podcast is a very convenient way to use your commute time to get some useful information. Recently, we have published a non-commercial podcast called Tunight, which collects interesting lectures and talks, aiming to provide a fast and easy way for those who cannot attend those activities to get an update.

iCalendar Render Library for Javascript

an idea by scateu

I often attend open source activities offline, but remembering the date and location of those activities is not easy. In China, I just collect those information from mailing list, WeChat or Telegram, then add them to Calendar.app on my iPhone manually.

As we know, we have ABC notation or GNU Lilypond for music staff. It takes ASCII as input and generates music scores and even MIDI format, which is very convenient for people to type music in computer.

PXEAT - A PXE management tool

a project by whdu

PXEAT (stand for PXE Administration Tool) is a tool to easily deploy and manage PXE service. It's NOT a tool for automatic deployment. It can enable user to add their own PXE items by themselves, but of course, very limited for security reasons. The tool will be developed with the light-weight framework - flask, as well as a sqlite database.

Tool to write raw images to USB disks

a project by alarrosa

The idea would be to create a qt5/kde5 based utility that can use local raw images as well as download a list of sources from a remote site. The idea is to provide a user interface that can be used by any user as well as a user interface that can be used in kiosk mode for booths so that a visitor can put a usb pendrive in any usb slot, select the image he/she wants to write to it and get it written in parallel to other usb memories. https://github.com/openSUSE/imagewriter seems to be abandoned, so probably part of the backend will be reused and the user interface will be rewritten from scratch, but anyway this will be reconsidered at the first task in the project.
