Implement >=z10 (s390x) support to QEMU

a project by mbenes

Last time I checked QEMU lacked support for >= z10 processors. Thus one cannot run SLE12 and newer in a virtual machine on non-s390x host. I'd like to improve the situation during Hackweeks.

Fix up configurations, pet projects and so on

a project by mssola

Since I'm already working on a work-related project (, I decided to also spend some time improving some of my toolbox. This includes configurations, scripts, pet projects and so on. I don't expect anyone to collaborate on this, but if someone is interested to know which scripts, programs and such I'm going to touch, feel free to ping me.

A generic mechanism for analysing and manipulating diverse software configuration files

a project by guohouzuo

There are vastly different syntaxes being used by Linux softwares nowadays - Apache, Bind, NTP, Postfix, just to name a few. It is a very tedious task to implement comprehensive parser for every single configuration file, and even more difficult to produce configuration text (file content) from parsed syntax tree. The project tackles those difficulties by presenting an implementation of a universal parser that is capable of:

Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

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.

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. 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.

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.

virtio-serial in OpenStack

a project by e_bischoff

Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP. I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.
