Automate the workreport email with python

an invention by ktsamis

In the spirit of learning more python and practicing I will be creating a script to automate the work report emails that we send every week. This will not be a simple cron job because I have to catch corner cases of vacation etc. The next step is filling the workreport automatically by using the various API's that we can use (Bugzilla, osc qam plugin). The purpose is mainly to learn a bit more python.

Distributed FS for openQA

an invention by oholecek

For far too long openQA instances are crippled by insufficient I/O throughput when under heavy load. This results in incomplete and aborted tests prolonging new snapshots testing and also adding confusion into the release process. OpenQA itself doesn't require any exact technology for its remote workers, but so far we relied on NFS. This was fine for few workers, now with 50+ of them this stopped to be a viable route however. There are some custom made mitigations like rsyncing tests, assets and needles before the actual test job run, but this feels like reinventing the wheel to me.

Linux driver for the AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310)

a project by patrikjakobsson

The AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310) is a cheap HDMI (with pass-through) to USB 2.0 capture card. The card only supports compressed output (afaik) which makes it slightly less useful but still very valuable when debugging graphical issues. The plan is to hook a few of these up to my test machines so I can stream the output to my workstation and integrate with the rest of my test setup. So far I've discovered that the card needs to be loaded with two firmwares. One for audio and one for video. Hopefully this will turn into a standard UVC device once the initial bootstrap is done fingers crossed. Specifications (From AverMedia webside):

Add more unit tests for libvirt

a project by jfehlig

I wanted to work on something test related this hackweek since we always need more automated testing of our virtualization-related packages. There are many possible test-related topics, but I think a good addition would be more unit tests that are run during build time, e.g. during 'make check'. Additional tests of this nature would then be run by upstream developers and the various distro CI setups, exposing the tests to more environments than would typically be available within SUSE. To this end, I'm planning to add unit tests to libvirt.git that test conversion of domain XML to structures used by Xen's libxl interface. The first attempt at such tests was nearly 3 years ago

Make most of KVM Virtualization for Development and Testing in laptop environment

a project by bfrogers

Having worked on KVM for a long time, it's time I actually start using it myself! I now have a high enough powered laptop to have a permanent setup on my laptop to do almost all the testing needed for releases, as well as maintaining playgrounds for upstream work and involvement. This will include nested virtualization, which is getting pretty bulletproof in latest kernels, as well as being able to play more with these other architectures that we now support KVM on, via improved TCG emulation (of course some testing and development will always rely on the physical hardware, but still a lot can be done via TCG incl. user-linux mode. I'm also seeing which aspects of pass-through testing will make the most sense to perform on the laptop (pci, usb, video, filesystem, etc.). Hopefully at the end of the week I will have gotten a better feel for all aspects of KVM as a "power user', and not just as a developer.

Extend the git-fixes framework to find non-upstream maintainers for files and patches

a project by joro

From the kernel-source git repository for SUSE kernels we can extract the people who backported a patch and the files a patch touches. Use this information to build a database for which paths are touched by which developers and write a tool to find the most relevant people for a given source path or upstream patch.

Add VirtualBox bootloader to openQA

an invention by michalnowak

In openQA we support various backends which are able to 'host' tests. 'svirt' - one of those backends - is so generic that it allows to conned to a virtualization host via SSH a perform shell commands directly. As VirtualBox has decent command line interface (especially VBoxManage command) it shouldn't be that hard to support VirtualBox in openQA's os-autoinst via svirt backend.

Figuring how to get Let's Encrypt setup on NAS without HTTP challenge

an invention by fcrozat

By default, let's encrypt allows to get domain for server where you resolve an HTTP challenge. This is sometime not possible to setup (because the server you want your SSL certificate isn't running a HTTP server). Such example is my Synology NAS, where I don't want to have a Internet facing HTTP server, just to get a SSL certificate.

Finish my family openSUSE adoption

a project by ancorgs

In a quite natural and steady way, all my relatives (wife, kids, mother, aunt...) have adopted openSUSE in their computers. There is only one resistance spot. My father's computer (HP+Windows8) implements all kind of mechanisms to avoid dual boot. I plan to use the spare cycles of my Hack Week to get a dual Windows/openSUSE system on that haunted computer. Killing Windows would be a feasible last resort.

Make git-sort faster

a project by benjamin_poirier

git-sort is a a tool that reads a list of git commits and sorts them so that the partial ordering of parent-child relationships is respected. It performs this as a stable sort; it preserves the input order of commits that are on parallel development branches. This tool is useful when backporting a large number of commits so that the commits may be cherry-picked in an order such that no child commit appears before any of its ancestors. The current implementation of git-sort is a proof of concept that uses git merge-base --is-ancestor. Having a more efficient version would ease the handling of large input lists.

UNIX domain socket support for Mojolicious

an invention by kraih

The Mojolicious web development toolkit is currently limited to using TCP/IP sockets for its HTTP/WebSocket client and server. For most web services that's more than enough, but for containerized applications and IPC, UNIX domain sockets could provide significantly better performance and security. Use cases would be for example faster communication between Mojolicious application servers and NGINX reverse proxies, or a WebSocket alternative to the D-BUS message bus currently being used by openQA.
