Prototype new LTP upstream runltp script

an invention by metan

Currently the upstream LTP is executed by a hacked up and old runltp script that executes even worse and fairly old mess called ltp-pan which in turn actually executes the test cases. This whole thing is a unmaintainable mess that should have been replaced with something simpler a long time ago. It should also have a few more features that has been requested in the meantime and not implemented since nobody wants to touch the code. For instance executing the test cases on a different machine via ssh and writing the results locally. Another feature I've been thinking about for quite some time is a parallel test execution, since most of the test cases in fact could be executed in parallel which could easily speed up the test run twice. There are other tests that cannot, mostly stress tests, but also test cases that modify global system state, i.e. system time, make use of sysv IPC, use loop devices, etc. These kind of tests should be annotated somehow so that we do not end up with a test cases competing for a global resources in a parallel test run.

SSH Tunnel YaST Plugin

a project by gary_smith

Learn about developing a YaST plugin by creating a plugin to manage SSH Tunnels. Creating SSH port tunnels along with corresponding iptables rules is a useful technique for being able to access virtual machines on a remote host that only visible on a private network. Managing and maintaining these connections via scripts and tmux sesssions is less desirable than doing it through a nice UI like YaST. Note that the CLI tool https://www.npmjs.com/package/ssh-tunnel-manager has some nice ideas for managing groups and profiles that may be useful.

Fast bugzilla search

an invention by alnovak

The Problem

The first thing one should do when resolving a bug is to find out, whether that bug wasn't encountered and perhaps even fixed before. Using our internal Bugzilla's search, that can be long and painful task. I don't know if I'm querying it wrong, or if the problem is the amount of bugs (> 1M and growing quickly), or the number of users, or simply the Bugzilla itself. Also another problem is that some bugs have wrong metadata, which makes the efforts to narrow the search a bit harder.

Add zypper markauto/unmarkauto commands to allow tuning automated cleanup

a project by mlandres

Packages added by the dependency solver in order to resolve a user's request, are marked as having been automatically installed. They may later be removed, if no more manually installed packages depend on them (e.g. by zypper remove --clean-deps). However things may go haywire. Automatically installed packages may turn out to be useful, and you may want to exclude them from any automatic cleanup. And vice versa.

Better Boot Screens with BPAEngine (Plymouth)

a project by mdeniz

This project is about hacking and pushing further an engine called BPAEngine written in plymouth that enable people to develop better boot screens without much effort. Having those new boot screens in our distributions would be great. Plymouth is a "basic" scripting language for developing boot screens (See some Fedora examples running). Our openSUSE distributions have their own plymouth themes packaged on the branding-openSUSE package. And in my opinion they are very basic..., just a dot moving in 3 positions with the nice background and a logo.

This would be a KMS driver for a fake modesetting graphics device, just using normal system memory. This can be useful for learning, but judging from dri-developer discussions, also useful for testing hotplug races, plane blending and finding other KMS/DRI infrastructure bugs.

It should be fairly easy to reuse the same core and add an alternative structure parser, which would perform the checks instead of printing the decoded information.

While I understand that you can add these here in the Markdown, I'd like a way that's also programmatically accessible. I'd also like to be able to obfuscate email address in a way that tends to discourage or protect from spammers.
