Port ceph rbd client to Windows

an idea by kallan

Using mingw on Winodws, port the ceph rbd client to Windows. Start by compiling the files and porting any posix isms like fork, ecec, wait, join, etc. Then find the ceph libraries that it uses and repeat the process. Hopefully I'll get to the point where I can start to link and see what other functionality needs to be ported over.

Speed up installation

a project by jreidinger

Installation time is important as shorter installation allows everyone to safe resources and their time. It also can make better impression when starting with openSUSE and SUSE. And last but not least as we more frequently use openQA, so we do hundreds of installation every week, it even smaller improvement can in the end help SUSE to safe resources and be more green.

Research/Develop a method for automatic partial/degraded LVM volume mounting when lvmetad is active

a project by dbond1

SLES 12SP1 enables the lvmetad service by default. While in general this greatly enhances the efficiency of LVM, it does expose an issue with auto mounting partial and degraded volumes. This project will be an exploration of the interactions between udev, pvscan, and lvmetad in an attempt to find the best method to enable customizable/automatic mounting of partial and degraded volume groups.

QA Lab automated inventory

an idea by sebchlad

Agentless Systems Management Based on Salt SSH

a project by j_renner

This project is about using Salt SSH for managing systems without the need of an additional agent to be installed (besides sshd). With the SSH protocol the connection is initiated by the management server, thus Salt SSH can be used to even manage systems that are located outside of company firewalls, i.e. machines that cannot access a salt-master due to firewall restrictions. In order to still be able to access resources inside a company network though it would be very helpful if the salt-ssh command supported remote port forwarding (as with the -R parameter of the ssh command) for tunneling other traffic through the existing ssh connection, for instance a package manager might want to install packages from a company internal RPM repository. A patch was therefore contributed to Salt SSH in order to enable this feature (merged into develop):

learning openQA and writing test

an idea by rdodopoulos

openQA seems to be increasingly used within SUSE. My primary aim is to learn the tool well. In addition, I want to start writing tests that could be, eventually, integrated into the automatic openQA tests of QAM. Currently, I'm trying to test ImageMagick (updates) in openQA.
