Better Boot Screens with BPAEngine (Plymouth)

a project by mdeniz

This project is about hacking and pushing further an engine called BPAEngine written in plymouth that enable people to develop better boot screens without much effort. Having those new boot screens in our distributions would be great. Plymouth is a "basic" scripting language for developing boot screens (See some Fedora examples running). Our openSUSE distributions have their own plymouth themes packaged on the branding-openSUSE package. And in my opinion they are very basic..., just a dot moving in 3 positions with the nice background and a logo.

Local voice recognition for home automation

a project by jenspinney

There are several popular ways of controlling home automation with voice today. Amazon Echo and Google Home both allow users to control lights, speakers, etc. with a simple voice command. For this project, I want to replicate some of the simple voice commands supported by projects like those, but in a way that does all processing from within the local network, and doesn't upload any voice clips to a server outside the home. There's something that feels a little uncomfortable about Amazon or Google having the ability to listen in on all conversations, so I'm trying to eliminate that while still being able to turn my lights on or off by voice.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

a project by bergmannf

I want to use this Hackweek to explore (Functional) Reactive Programming to be able to use it in my day-to-day work. This includes checking out basic literature about (F)RP as well as domain modelling to get a better understanding, when this paradigm makes sense to use, as well as looking into concrete implementation of (F)RP libraries.
