Add on top of that Ceilosca (Ceilometer metering using Monasca as a back end) and the list gets longer.

Learn KMS / DRM graphics driver internals - implement virtual/software KMS driver

I want to understand the basics and architecture of KMS / DRM drivers in the kernel (also in mesa, but this project is more about the kernel-side). I will read docs and attempt to implement a virtual kernel-mode-setting driver (vkms) as described in Documentation/gpu/todo. 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.

Sometimes, you want a flexible way to handle certain situations involving C++ exceptions, particularly those for which alternative actions are either easily encapsulated, do not substantially interrupt the program flow, or must cross a foreign-function interface or thread boundary. A useful idiom is to rewrite attempts to perform an action with such forms of exception handling as instead returning a monadic value, like with C++17's std::optional<>:

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">

Hopefully this will turn into a standard UVC device once the initial bootstrap is done fingers crossed. Specifications (From AverMedia webside):

Learn rtags (vim-rtags) how to properly do code completion based on LLVM API

an idea by marxin

Both YouCompleteMe and rtags are powerful tools that provide useful IDE features to both VIM and Emacs editors. Both use llvm front-end in order to provide code completion hints. Suggestion based on YCM are fine, however I believe that rtags is better tool because it has a concept of project and provides for instance GoToDefinition command, one that's not supported by YCM. Goal of the project is to provide better code completion hints for rtags, where one has to filter out and sort results given by the FE. Apart from that, calling code completion for 'myvar.myf^', LLVM prefer to be given 'my_var.^', as it understands one expects member function and variables.

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.

Add URLs for source repos and communication to Hackweek projects

a project by eclectigeek

It would be excellent if Hackweek projects had a standard way to include URLs for their code repositories, as well as URLs for communication methods like chat and email. This would allow folks who are interested in a project to either lurk a bit to learn more, or directly reach out to the folks running the project. 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.

Integrate zeromq into crowbar-openstack as a alternative to rabbitmq

a project by StevenK

RabbitMQ is, in this hacker's opinion, hard to run, hard to scale, hard to debug, and difficult to run in a HA situation. ZeroMQ takes a different approach from the centralized broker model, and instead runs a daemon on every machine that needs to send or receive message over the bus, and communicates directly between machines. * Package up zeromq.

kCFI Release

a project by jmoreira

kCFI is a tool that enables the compilation of commodity Operating Systems with Control-Flow Integrity protection. kCFI first prototype was developed/implemented during a PhD program held in the University of Campinas, in Brazil. Although fully functional, the tool remains in a very experimental shape, needing to be refactored prior to being released. 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.

Make GCC IPA-SRA really IPA

a project by jamborm

GCC's IPA-SRA pass is run as a regular pass, not as an IPA pass. While this has simplified its implementation quite a bit, it's been creating pass-ordering issues for years now. So, let me try again to make it a real IPA pass, possibly dropping the capability to turn by-reference parameters to by-value ones, but definitely giving it the ability to work on strongly connected components of the call graph. And ending the pass-ordering issues.

Btrfs quotas improvements

an idea by winddss

The problem with quotas is that the feature itself isn't yet mature. At least until very recently, and possibly still, quotas couldn't be depended upon to work correctly (various not entirely uncommon corner-cases would trigger negative numbers, etc), and even when they do work correctly, they simply don't scale well in combination with balance, check, etc -- that 10X difference isn't uncommon. Understanding the code in Btrfs quotas, give a analysis & improvement.

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

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.

When using a CMS they do not have the resources to secure the CMS from the various possible attacs most CMSes are notorious for.

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.

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).

E.g. a person will play router, another one will play PC and they will need to find a person playing TCP/IP protocol to communicate and eventually create a working setup to solve the goal. They they need to work as a group and solve riddles/ciphers which will let them go further. There are more game mechanics i have in mind, but don't want to spoil all of them now :)

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.

linux antivirus engine

an idea by bmwiedemann

http://www.ranum.com/security/computer_security/editorials/dumb/ explained in detail that filtering badness is a dumb idea, so if we wanted to build a linux antivirus software, we would need a whitelist of programs that would be allowed to execute. We can easily use the rpm database for that. But what is missing, is a mechanism through that the kernel would check before executing $binary if it is OK to run it.

OCI Image Distribution with RPMs

a project by cyphar

Currently the Open Container Initiative doesn't specify a distribution protocol or system, and the current "standard" format is the Docker registry protocol. 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).

The second part becomes more complicated than it looks as soon as you start considering the restrictions imposed by each volumes and by the technology (primary vs logical partitions, for example). Right now, the problem is solved by brute force. All the possible distributions of partitions and LVM physical volumes are considered and the best one (according to several simple criteria) is chosen.

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.

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.

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.

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

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:

During Hackweek I aim to try and identify such cases in various packagers' workflow and consider creating a tool that would make these tasks easier. Also, I would like to find out whether there is a demand for such tool. In that case, this Hackweek project will turn into a long-term task I plan to keep working on.

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

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?

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

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.

Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from version 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the work of manually disable all of the repositories, update them manually, open the terminal and finally make a "zypper dup" .
