Scout a replacement for MTUI

a project by rneuhauser

[MTUI][MTUI] is a tool used by QA-Maintenance in testing maintenance updates. Saddled with a host of questionable choices for its interfaces and implementation, it includes a number of difficult-to-fix bugs and hostility toward change. While not the first choice for me, the time's come to scout out a different approach. Welcome SMRT. SMRT will be an alternative to MTUI, and will eventually supercede it.

Turn a young person's life into misery

a project by rneuhauser

While programming is occasionally a very rewarding activity, it's mostly a chore and the rest is filled with frustration. Let's teach an unsuspecting youngster program! To fulfill this nefarious goal I've set out to help my colleague without prior programming experience get hooked on programming, starting with python. The student finished an online tutorial and we pair programmed a tiny-fix-turned-massive-change in a tool used by our team.

Github Projects Gnome Shell Extension

a project by hfschmidt

Checking the status of your Github pull requests is annoying. You have to lose focus from your current work (ie. hacking) and open your browser, type the repo URL in the address bar, click on the Pull Requests page, and look at the status of your PR. This extension makes that process a breeze! By clicking on the Octocat in the status area, you'll have direct access to your favorite repos, and an overview of their PRs' build statuses. Clicking on a certain PR will take you directly to that PR's page.

update+fix samsung exynos/arndale arm board boot

a project by bmwiedemann

We had old arndale images working, but those were based on openSUSE-12.x which is now long obsolete and bad (e.g. missing security updates). Thus we want to use a more modern u-boot and kernel, but those currently trigger a kernel panic.

Make Intel baytrail based device(s) work better with openSUSE

a project by mkubecek

Recently I became a (not very proud) owner of Acer Aspire Switch 10E, a small notebook/tablet convertible based on Intel baytrail platform. Replacing preinstalled (32-bit!) Windows 8.1 with (64-bit) openSUSE proved more challenging than expected, mostly because the device is haunted by a 32-bit UEFI so that it took me a week to make it boot without an external USB flash disk. Even today, a lot of issues persist. As I do not want to waste a (partially) good hardware, I would like to make it as usable as possible. This is much less selfish than it sounds as there are many other devices based on Intel baytrail platform so that the effort is going to help their owners as well (if successful, that is).

Add branding to DAPS and the suse-xsl-stylesheets

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS is the tool used by the SUSE documentation team to generate HTML, ePUB, PDF, ... output of the SUSE manuals from DocBook XML sources. It uses the suse-xsl-stylesheets for this purpose. Currently three different suse-xsl-stylesheet brands exist: SUSE, DAPS, openSUSE. Branding is done by adjusting the xsl-stylesheets directly. It would be desirable to be able to easily change the branding, e.g. via a simple config file in the style of /etc/sysconfig files, since most people cannot hack XSLT. This is also the number one enhancement request we get from DAPS users outside of SUSE.

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.

Windows server core utility for setting device parameters

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.

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.

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.

Shipping everything

a project by cschum

Writing code is wonderful, but it gets its real value, when it's released and shipped to the world. You know the mantra: "Release early, release often". Releasing code is not hard, but it involves a lot of details, and you want to get them right, because a release is this public statement "Hey, it's done, it works, you can use it." and you can't take a release back, once it's out there. To help with releases there are tons of release scripts which try to automate things. But they usually are quite fragile in case something goes wrong and a pain to test and maintain.

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.
