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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

Babylon Testing

a project by dmaiocchi

Goal: I will look during this project for existing tools and test suites Upstream, used by others distros (like 1) Fedora, 2) Arch-Linux, 3) Debian), and try to learn how they test, use their tool, projects.

Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

crash-python

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

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.

openQA IDE

a project by coolo

There is a running gag built into openQA called interactive mode. It goes like this: "if you need the interactive mode, it's broken". The reason: the so called interactive mode is a collection of hacks - in theory making it possible to update needles in a running test. But in fact it's a UI desaster that almost never works. So the goal of this hackweek project is to get rid of it - and instead build a real control from the webui into the backend allowing tests to be written on the fly including needle creation/updates. Easy as that.

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

Faster kernel builds in the OBS

an invention by michal-m

Use jenkins as openQA UI

an invention by okurz

motivation

jenkins is a great CI system (continuous integration) with a plethora of plugins available. SUSE QA uses openQA extensively as it excels in distribution and product testing - not only image comparison (common misconception ;-) ). How about combining both in using jenkins with plugins to act as a UI for openQA?

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.

flatpak (previously xdg-app) runtime based on openSUSE / flatpak support for OBS

a project by fcrozat

Flatpak (previously known as xdg-app) is a bundle system, based on ostree, to easily make available applications bundle to users. Currently, flatpack is available on openSUSE Tumbleweed but we don't ship any runtime based on openSUSE (freedesktop or GNOME runtime). Also, it could be interesting to generate flatpak bundle directly from OBS, if possible, using either available packages or directly application sourcecode.

TumbleSLE - Applying Tumbleweed Logic to the SLE codebase for more efficient testing & development

an invention by RBrownSUSE

Right now internal SLE development is still organised & structured around the concept of 'Milestones'. Schedules are defined, deadlines are set, and off we go making Alpha 1, 2, 3, Betas 1, 2, 3, RC's, and so on. Meanwhile, QA has evolved, and with openQA and other automated tooling we are increasingly testing SLE in a more agile, rolling model, testing every single build as soon as it's produced by OBS, and just paying extra attention to the Milestones with additional manual testing.

Kernel oops decoder

a project by benjamin_poirier

Read in a crash or oops-style backtrace and access DWARF information to output the current content of the stack and registers in term of symbols, and the the crash commands to dump/pretty print them. In other words, when looking at a crash dump, answer the questions "Which variable is currently stored in $rax? What is the structure of the stack? Which variable is stored at $rsp+16?"

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.

Improve packagers' life

a project by kstreitova

Every packager encounters boring manual tasks every once in a while and these tasks can most probably be automated to some extent. During Hackweek I aim to try and identify such cases in various packagers' workflow and consider creating a tool that would make these tasks easier. Also, I would like to find out whether there is a demand for such tool. In that case, this Hackweek project will turn into a long-term task I plan to keep working on.

Orca: hunting cephalopods for fun and dinner

a project by LarsMB

Orcas are amazing animals. They are playful, intelligent, great swimmers, and very social. They also love to play with their food, hunting down their prey with advanced strategies - understanding where its prey hides, how it will try to escape, and how to overcome those tactics - and having a lot of fun doing so, before relentlessly tearing it apart, killing it, and eat it. Not necessarily in that order. Oh, and they have the right color scheme. This forces their prey to also improve and adapt more advanced strategies and tactics. In this arms race, both sides evolve and improve: the evolutionary pressure has made cephalopods highly intelligent, adaptable, and resilient. Unfortunately (for them), they are still very tasty. So we should exert more evolutionary pressure on individuals to help them stay alive as a species.

Get rust into Tumbleweed

a project by KGronlund

With rust 1.9 released, it should be possible to from now on bootstrap rustc from the previous version of rustc (so 1.10 can be built using 1.9 etc.). This means that it should now be possible to create a rustc package which no longer needs binary snapshots to build, meaning that we might even be able to submit rustc for inclusion in openSUSE Tumbleweed. This is the first goal.
