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 ;-) ).

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).

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.

Docker: Image Rebasing

an invention by cyphar

git rebase is a very useful construct in source control management, as it allows you to re-apply your changes atop a different branch of the same repository. While this concept transitions perfectly to container management (updating a container could be as easy as a docker rebase), and the Docker client is inspired by the git semantics, Docker has no such feature (in fact, Solomon Hykes used rebase and merge as examples of things "that we don't want"). Currently, zypper-docker works by applying an updated layer on top of an existing image. While this does work quite well, it separates the process of updating the base image and updating all of your derivative images (you need to re-download new packages for each derivative image). So, this project will be working on implementing something like git rebase for Docker images. There are several issues with this, mainly involving the fact that we are rebasing binaries and not source code, so merge conflicts will probably be quite messy. But it should be possible to implement some form of simple rebase method (which will essentially fall back to docker build in the worst case, which is what you were going to run anyway). By maximising the reuse of the existing image layers, it should be possible to reduce build times quite significantly.
