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.

Project Maxfeld: Cultural Onboarding to counter unknown unknowns

Brainstorming about Continuous Delivery in SLE

a project by pgeorgiadis

Hackweek is here! I think this is the best week of the year to sit down altogether and exchange ideas and suggestions. The main topic is Automation. The goal is that many of these ideas might help various teams within SUSE to engage their business reasons better in defining key expectations and improve the quality of our software products. No fear of change -- the aim is to propose a modern pipeline in a less-invasive manner. Everybody has an idea, everybody has a voice! Brainstorming together can be useful to many different roles, including testers, analysts and developers. Let's have a chit-chat and write down some of those; Hopefully we will come up with plenty of tips on how to organise testing activities better. > Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is a success. - Henry Ford

Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

Add branding to DAPS and the suse-xsl-stylesheets

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS is the tool used by the SUSE documentation team to generate HTML, ePUB, PDF, ... output of the SUSE manuals from DocBook XML sources. It uses the suse-xsl-stylesheets for this purpose. Currently three different suse-xsl-stylesheet brands exist: SUSE, DAPS, openSUSE. Branding is done by adjusting the xsl-stylesheets directly. It would be desirable to be able to easily change the branding, e.g. via a simple config file in the style of /etc/sysconfig files, since most people cannot hack XSLT. This is also the number one enhancement request we get from DAPS users outside of SUSE.

SUSE Manager / Salt integration revisited

a project by j_renner

There is a number of possible improvements to the architecture of SUSE Manager / Salt integration that should be investigated in order to improve the reliability and scalability of the backend: 1. Actions are currently scheduled in the minions using the schedule module of Salt. This brings problems with reliability as for instance a minion can be down at the specified schedule time which leads to actions not being executed. Scalability can be an issue as actions being scheduled for many minions might return results to the server at the same time. Instead it might be better to keep control over scheduled actions on the server to allow batching of actions as well as downtimes of minions or even the server. There is a work in progress branch to get started.

Use OpenStack Rally for SUSE Cloud testing

a project by evshmarnev

OpenStack is, undoubtedly, a really huge ecosystem of cooperative services. Rally is a benchmarking tool that answers the question: “How does OpenStack work at scale?”. To make this possible, Rally automates and unifies multi-node OpenStack deployment, cloud verification, benchmarking & profiling. Rally does it in a pluggable way, making it possible to check whether OpenStack is going to work well on, say, a 1k-servers installation under high load. Thus it can be used as a basic tool for an OpenStack CI/CD system that would continuously improve its SLA, performance, and stability. <img src="https://wiki.openstack.org/w/images/thumb/e/ee/Rally-Actions.png/850px-Rally-Actions.png" width="700">

OCI Image Distribution with RPMs

Aside from technical reservations with Docker registry, it is also not an OCI-compliant system and will require a lot of work to integrate it into all of the openSUSE/SUSE tooling. So, a very insane idea I came up with is to convert OCI images to RPMs and then distribute them as simple RPMs. The idea would be to use capabilities (Provides: oci(...)) to implement the different names of images and then also the dependency graph of blobs (which would naturally be de-duplicated).

Refresh connect.opensuse.org

a project by lrupp

Connect is the "social network" of the openSUSE community. While this might not sound so important, the problem is that the tool is used for membership management and all the other "administrative" stuff for the openSUSE community, which makes it a very important tool. The bad news is that - since years(!) - there is no-one actively maintaining the application. While the openSUSE Heroes keep the basic infrastructure up and running, they are not responsible for the application itself. Following the standard policy for such services, this would mean that connect has to be shut down immediately. But the openSUSE board heavily depends on this tool and asks every time when it comes to "shut it down" - to not do it.

Re-architecting Jangouts data/events model

an invention by IGonzalezSosa

During the last GSoC, Jangouts was ported to work on Angular 2. Among other goodies, like the component-based approach or ditching the $scope thingie, Angular 2 leverages the use of observables thanks to its integration with RxJS. However, when the project started, our student (who did a great job) had to fight^Wwork with a beta version of Angular 2 and, unfortunatelly, the API changed before the release of the final version.

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.

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.

As kCFI consists in multiple tools, which include compiler plugins, kernel patches and binary analyzers, its deployment is considerably complex. Once code refactoring is finished, the next step consists in setting up proper repositories for the tool and for each submodule, along with scripts and documentation to enable easy configuration and compilation on new environments.

Nightwatch, Webpack and vue.js!!!

It's a great opportunity to learn Webpack, PhantomJS nightwatch and to set up a TDD approach with any new features written with vue.js, the framework which we will be using in HAWK from now on.

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

openQA Package Testing

a project by RBrownSUSE

openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal. But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?

Securing a CMS by using a hidden CMS and exporting static html to a web server

a project by johannes_p

Small non profit organisations or activist groups need a Web presence that is easy to maintain by several authors. When using a CMS they do not have the resources to secure the CMS from the various possible attacs most CMSes are notorious for. Defacement or placing malicious content can damage the reputation of such non profit organisations. The solution would be to combine an of the shelf CMS with a static web server that is hosted on a different IP address. The authors would access the CMS through a kind of remote access gateway e.g. openvpn) where access can be well secured with certificates or even hardware tokens.

Mojolicious is a web development toolkit and framework built around an event loop. That has many performance and scalability advantages, but can also make debugging slow code a bit of a challenge. Especially in big projects like openQA, where Devel::NYTProf can be a bit tricky to use, it would be nice to have more built-in diagnostics tools at the event reactor level. Mojo::UserAgent already has very good diagnostics features with MOJO_USERAGENT_DEBUG, and we should be able to do something similar for Mojo::IOLoop.

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)

The AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310) is a cheap HDMI (with pass-through) to USB 2.0 capture card.

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.

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.

orca: build OCI images from Dockerfiles

a project by cyphar

Currently the main complaint people have about OCI tooling is the lack of a transition from Docker to OCI. With umoci you have a lot of low-level image configuration abilities, and skopeo and runC cover the other major parts of the picture, but you need something to tie them together. I'm not going to be implementing YAWAR (Yet Another Wrapper Around Runc). It's just going to be a single script that can take a Dockerfile and create an OCI image that is basically the same as the Docker image you would get -- with the big difference being that you didn't need Docker and everything used the OCI. The other cool benefit of this is that you could build images without privileges (since rootless containers now exist in runC and in umoci).
