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.

SSH Tunnel YaST Plugin

a project by gary_smith

Learn about developing a YaST plugin by creating a plugin to manage SSH Tunnels. Creating SSH port tunnels along with corresponding iptables rules is a useful technique for being able to access virtual machines on a remote host that only visible on a private network. Managing and maintaining these connections via scripts and tmux sesssions is less desirable than doing it through a nice UI like YaST. Note that the CLI tool has some nice ideas for managing groups and profiles that may be useful.

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.
