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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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.

The use-case to consider is to run a Service Function Chain(SFC) with basic Network functions like Firewall/QoS that run as services on JeOS Guests on SUSE OpenStack Cloud (SOC).

Windows 10 in openQA

To make sure openSUSE can coexist nicely with an existing Windows installation, we need to have automated regression testing.

Instead of just uploading some prepared hard disk image, openQA should ideally install Windows itself and save the generated image. In a second run openQA can then install the latest Leap or TW on that disk image.
