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.

Upstreaming of mediatek helios board

an idea by mbrugger

The only Mediatek "hacker" board available is from 96 Boards [1]. Unfortunately up to now there is nearly no mainline support. Idea would be to improve this situation. The idea would be to get the pin-controller merged first and then hopefully most of the other stuff can be just added (fingers crossed...)

Docker for Beginners

a project by shundhammer

Using docker as a development platform for nontrivial development environments sounds interesting. This project is about learning basic docker handling, about exploring how to use it for simplifying development, and maybe (but just maybe) about providing ready-made docker containers for new team members.

Investigate using Terraform plus Salt as HA cluster test platform

a project by KGronlund

For testing Hawk, we're currently using a Vagrant configuration, and for testing HA releases we've been using a set of scripts originally authored by Antoine Ginies as a Hackweek project. My vague idea is to combine Terraform, Salt and a custom web frontend to make a tool that can be used by us as developers but also for others that want to try Hawk or play around with a cluster, for example for the UX team when testing modifications to the Hawk UI. I would base this on the work done by the SUSE Manager team:

"autoremove" functionality for zypper

Write a personal Telegram bot

a project by imanyugin

The goal is to reduce the number of applications installed on the mobile phone (which consequently reduces the number of ads and spyware) and transfer some of the functionality of the commonly installed apps to a personal Telegram Bot. Bots are a great way of implementing integration with external services, and, to this end, we expect the following functionality:

Get rid of perl-apparmor

a project by goldwynr

Perl-apparmor is obsolete in the apparmor community. No one is maintaining it. However, opensuse has to keep it to interact with yast, which is the main consumer of perl-apparmor. Getting rid of perl-apparmor would mean: + Creating a new interface (JSON) to interact with outside world (IOW, yast)

Do something useful with the TPM

an idea by mwilck

Almost all our laptops, and many servers, feature a TPM today. The TPM doesn't have the best reputation in the community because it could be used to lock down platforms or do nasty things with DRM. Under normal conditions on PCs, the TPM is controlled by the system owner and could actually be useful for almost anything involving crypto. Unfortunately the integration of the TPM in the OS is essentially non-existent. The introduction of the TPM2.0 standard complicates matters, because we now have two different devices with different APIs. The goal of this project would be to identify reasonable use cases for the TPM, evaluate exisiting projects, and create ways how to integrate it into various workflows in openSUSE.

Secure keyboard

an idea by mwilck

This idea was inspired by the recent discussion on the "talk" mailing list about the (in)security of the German ID card. The Chaos Computer Club and other researchers claim that the ID card is insecure. Actual attacks that have been demonstrated are based on keyloggers. Keyloggers might be the biggest security threat for Linux users at this time. Keyloggers are trivial to write for Linux and readily installable, and a keylogger with normal user rights may read root's password. One might ask "Why are we caring about local root exploits at all as long as users run stuff like sudo in X terminals"? Keyloggers can even read the input from devices like the Yubikey.

Explore how to write a help bot

There is plenty of documentation wiki articles, forum posts, etc., but even with Google or local search engines the answer may be hard to find. Sometimes categorisation is missing or just basic information. 1. Look at existing openSUSE options and their usability.

yast2-journal as the new default YaST log viewer

an idea by ancorgs

Some time ago the YaST team started to get bug reports about the "System Log" option displaying no content. By default this component opens /var/log/messages and after the switch to systemd that file is not longer used by default. Thus, we created the yast2-journal module to allow viewing of the systemd journal (journald). But the new module did not substitute the old viewer because the old one is still useful to inspect plain text files like /var/log/boot.log and because is still called from other YaST modules. The current situation is confusing. In the YaST main screen we have now "System Log" and "Systemd Journal". Is not unlikely that in some other places we only have a reference to the old one. It's not clear when to use which one. That has been reported several times, like in bug#948729.

PA-RISC instruction set emulator

Unfortunately, the USB support needs some non-standard timings so there is quite a bit of integration and debugging needed.
