[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"

Native Xen support for RADOS Block devices

I/O error injection with qemu

an idea by hreinecke

Having implemented basic multipath support for qemu (posted on the qemu mailing list last week), I thought it should be possible to implement I/O error injection in qemu. Would be really nice to inject I/O timeouts or even dropped I/O in qemu, just to see how the linux guest reacts to it

Full multipath support for qemu

an idea by hreinecke

I've already posted basic multipath support for qemu last week. However, this still relies on the non-obvious hack to specify the same file for both block devices, thereby implictly doing multipathing. And it has the drawback that one can only use the 'raw' format for images, everything else won't work.

Get flashplayer (pepperflash) working again in Firefox for my standard user 'sndirsch'

an idea by sndirsch

Unfortunately flashplayer no longer works in Firefox. It freezes FF for about 1-2 minutes. With pepperflash (coming from Google) flash is not detected at all. Flash works inside of google-chrome though. The issues apply only to my standard user 'sndirsch' (~/.mozilla/ directory has been erased completely!). For a freshly created user pepperflash works fine in FF. I would like to investigate on this, since still a lot of webpages are using flash and I don't want to switch for google-chrome because of this.

Windows server core utility for setting device parameters

an idea by kallan

When running WHQL tests on the Windows VMDP drivers, one test requires the server vm to be in core mode. Once in core mode, it is difficult to modify NIC parameters and adjust disk partitions. I want to make a simple command line utility that will enable making these kind of changes when in core mode. Remote server management is possible but requires a lot of setup and some features I need are lacking.

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.

Tahoe-LAFS on OpenSUSE

a project by gsanso

Tahoe-LAFS is an open-source decentralized cloud storage system. It distributes your data across multiple servers. Even if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire file store continues to function correctly, preserving your privacy and security. It provides a provider-independent security where the storage provider does not have access to the unencrypted data because all data is encrypted, erasure-coded, and hashed before leaving the client's machine thus preserving confidentiality, availability, and integrity of the data.

Capturing FC frames with wireshark

a project by ptesarik

AFAIK, wireshark is the best Linux tool for analyzing network traffic. Primarily intended for Ethernet networks, there is now also support for very different protocols (e.g. USB). Sadly, there is no support for fibre channel, most likely because there is even no infrastructure in the kernel. I doubt I could write the complete stack within just one week. The result should be a clear plan of what needs to be done on each level and a proof-of-concept implementation of at least some parts.
