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.

Setting up a complete SUSE "Software Defined Infrastructure" stack from bare metal with Salt and friends

an idea by joachimwerner

In the last couple of years we've made a lot of progress in the SUSE Manager team when it comes to being able to do fully automated testing. We started with a Vagrant-based setup ("Suminator") and are currently using Silvio Moioli's "Sumaform" (https://github.com/moio/sumaform), which is based on Terraform. But the current setup only brings up a "virgin" SUSE Manager with a number of clients and optionally runs the test suite.

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.

Extend the git-fixes framework to find non-upstream maintainers for files and patches

a project by joro

From the kernel-source git repository for SUSE kernels we can extract the people who backported a patch and the files a patch touches. Use this information to build a database for which paths are touched by which developers and write a tool to find the most relevant people for a given source path or upstream patch.

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.

Finish my family openSUSE adoption

a project by ancorgs

In a quite natural and steady way, all my relatives (wife, kids, mother, aunt...) have adopted openSUSE in their computers. There is only one resistance spot. My father's computer (HP+Windows8) implements all kind of mechanisms to avoid dual boot. I plan to use the spare cycles of my Hack Week to get a dual Windows/openSUSE system on that haunted computer. Killing Windows would be a feasible last resort.

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.

Ceph Radosgw Client in Android File Manager

a project by alexlau

Ceph is very robust for keeping data, beside using cephfs or exporting rbd. It is not too easy to access object directly with a client, let alone mobile. By using Rados gateway, android client can easily using S3/Swift http/s request to read object data from the internet. It is a simple idea to use an existing open source android FileManager e.g. https://github.com/arpitkh96/AmazeFileManager

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).
