[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.

an idea by scateu

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

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.

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.

SUSE office in a box

a project by ancorgs

Working remotely has many advantages, but you sometimes lack some infrastructure. Specially if you use several computers or you share space with other SUSE co-workers. We are 3 Susers in Gran Canaria and we plan to share an office. So we have bought a Cubietruck, a tiny device with minimum power consumption, an ARM processor, a SATA interface and a Gigabit ethernet. The plan is to come-up with a set of recipes to configure such device to:

Obsolete: Stabilize Janus

an idea by ancorgs

During previous Hackweek, Jangouts (an alternative to Google Hangouts) was developed. Since then, it has served as well in the YaST team. Other teams are also using the internal instance regularly. But it cannot be adopted company-wide due to the instability of the main server component (Janus Gateway) when running on top of SLE12. For details, see this thread on the (internal) Reseach mailing list. I don't have the knowledge to fix the problems, but I'd be 100% available to help anybody trying to hunt the issues down (I'll be in Nuremberg during hackweek). As an alternative, I'm considering a plan B I would hate to do: dockerize Janus with Debian/Ubuntu since that seem to be the environment used by the Janus developers.

Internal shared images repository

a project by ancorgs

During the last CSM workshop we identified the need to have a good way to share the images we use for testing. We have documented the requirements and the current status in this wiki page (we even have a diagram). So analysis is done... it's time for action. The solution should be relatively easy to implement using our portfolio of solutions. Coordinating all the potential users should be easier during Hackweek, specially since I'll be in Nuremberg (and I can physically chase most people ;-) ).

Static analyzer of Lua language

a project by NalaGinrut

I'm trying to write a static analyzer for Lua programming language. And I've ready done some parts, say, lexer/parser/AST/types...etc. The challenge part at present, is to write comment-based type annotation, for later type-inference. I plan to implement it in a week. I've spent years on this area. Hope I'm lucky in hackweek.

Bootstrap openSUSE for MIPS

a project by a_faerber

While in the past MIPS boards were either low-end PIC32 or found in routers running OpenWRT at most, Imagination themselves have recently released the Creator CI20 board (Ingenic, MIPS32) running Debian. And the Shield Pro (previously iGuardian) kickstarter project (Octeon-III, MIPS64) promises to become a playground for testing KVM hardware virtualization. Porting openSUSE to MIPS will involve setting up an OBS instance linked to Factory (update: done) and cross-compiling a set of packages for an initial bootstrap (update: in progress). Maybe this can be scripted to some degree, as there will be some overlap with the ARM ILP32 port project.

write mkcloudcloud - a nested cloud setup software

a project by bmwiedemann

In https://github.com/SUSE-Cloud/automation/ we already have mkcloud, which can setup a whole SUSE Cloud on a single host for testing. However, it would be cool, if (instead of a single machine) we could use cloud.suse.de with its capability to add extra networks as requested. This can be pretty easy, as much of the mkcloud code is about making libvirt do the right thing
