maildir backed NNTP server for mailing list handling

a project by jgrassler


For a few years now I have been using mutt for handling my private emails and Thunderbird for work related stuff, mainly because the former is less than stellar at handling mailing lists and the latter is at least bearable for mailing lists. These days my private email address is on a lot of mailing lists, too and this kind of arrangement may yet force me to use Thunderbird for my private email addresses.

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.

open-iscsi database untanglement

an idea by lee_duncan

The open-iscsi package uses a file/directory-based database -- actually, 3 databases: the "send targets" done with their results, the "nodes" found, and the "interfaces" known/used. But there are inefficiencies when dealing with thousands of targets, and the "node" and "send target" databases could easily be combined. Perhaps moved into a real database? Also, the sysfs interaction that open-iscsi does is terrible with thousands of targets, perhaps even O(n^2), which would really really suck. I'd like to investigate the relationship of sysfs access to number of targets/LUNs to verify this.

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):

Improve Marvin dashboard

Marvin is a job scheduler that the Performance Team at SUSE Labs uses to automate the execution of the performance test suite MMTests.

GCC bisection tool

an idea by marxin


Bugzilla of the GCC compiler is full of errors where the compiler generates a crash report (yeah commonly known as ICE). When isolating an issues, it's very useful to identify which releases are affected, ideally which concrete revision the culprit. The common approach is to utilize git bisect command, however doing that for many issues can be exhausting.
