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!

Bring Linux memory scanner scanmem/GameConqueror to openSUSE

an invention by sparschauer

All other distributions have scanmem/gameconqueror packages. scanmem is a command line memory scanner to locate variables in memory and GameConqueror is the Python/GTK3 front-end for it which also provides game trainer features. But it is not only a game cheating tool. It can also help testing applications, debugging memory issues, watching variables in memory or it can be used for reverse-engineering. Hackers also use it for things like ping spoofing. As the upstream maintainer of this tool I'd like to bring it to openSUSE and maintain it there.

geekos.prv.suse.net employee finder

an invention by hennevogel

Mission: Our company org chart consists mostly of teams + their project managers. teams.suse.com is an application that gives an overview about the various SUSE team resources like org-chart, office locations, mission descriptions, links to team pages/blogs etc. It should combine the various data sources that are already there (eguide, floor, externaltools etc.) and provide a way to enrich this data.

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.

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.

Improving Jangouts UX

an invention by IGonzalezSosa

For some of us, Jangouts has become a tool we use everyday. It works (most of the time) and it helps to reduce the impact of having a distributed team. In the past, Jangouts developers were busy making it to work. But, unfortunately, they didn't pay attention to UX. So the idea of this project is to invest some time trying to improve usability and make Jangouts looks better.

Learn to speak, read and write German

an invention by cjschroder2

My German reading and speaking skills suck. I've forgotten everything except "Mehr Bier, bitte". A week of intensive immersion ought to enable me to order food as well. And converse with my German team members. Especially when we go out for meals and drinks. This should have a concrete goal, so I will write a short story in German to demonstrate my amazing new fluency*.

Package mitmproxy for openSUSE properly

an invention by kfreitag

Mitmproxy is a totally awesome tool to investigate http- and https-traffic and thus is a very useful debugging tool.
I built a package for mitmproxy some time ago, it resides in OBS project devel:languages:python called python-mitmproxy. This needs some love: It fails to work nowadays because its dependencies moved on, and requires an update. I am also sure there could be a better home repository for it.

Run openQA testsuites with MALLOC_CHECK_ and MALLOC_PERTURB_ variables set

More diagnostics features for the Mojolicious event loop

an invention by kraih

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.

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.

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.

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.
