Distributed FS for openQA

an invention by oholecek

For far too long openQA instances are crippled by insufficient I/O throughput when under heavy load. This results in incomplete and aborted tests prolonging new snapshots testing and also adding confusion into the release process. OpenQA itself doesn't require any exact technology for its remote workers, but so far we relied on NFS. This was fine for few workers, now with 50+ of them this stopped to be a viable route however. 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.

Improve posixovl to support fully featured POSIX file system on top of any limited file system (e. g. vfat)

a project by sbrabec

posixovl is a FUSE based successor of the old UMSDOS. It has a goal to provide POSIX file system functionality on top of vfat. Its code is nice and well written, but its feature set is not complete yet. It just supports: POSIX modes and user/group, hard and symbolic links, device nodes and named pipes. Much more can be done:

yast2-storage-ng as a libstorage-ng wrapper. POC

a project by ancorgs

The goal of this project is to write a proof of concept of a new philosophy for yast2-storage-ng. Instead of just extending the API offered by libstorage-ng, the idea is wrap libstorage-ng so the Ruby code using yast2-storage-ng does not have direct visibility (unless explicitly desired) on the libstorage-ng classes and methods. If you don't know what all that means, keep reading.

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

Re-architecting Jangouts data/events model

an invention by IGonzalezSosa

During the last GSoC, Jangouts was ported to work on Angular 2. Among other goodies, like the component-based approach or ditching the $scope thingie, Angular 2 leverages the use of observables thanks to its integration with RxJS. However, when the project started, our student (who did a great job) had to fight^Wwork with a beta version of Angular 2 and, unfortunatelly, the API changed before the release of the final version.

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.

Recipe for packaging Electron apps

an idea by bear454

Electron apps are popping up everywhere, from the Atom editor to the Rocket.Chat client to Kap, a cross-platform open-source screen recorder. Electron apps are based on web technologies, and built from the ground up to be platform-agnostic. The electron framework is open source, and most of the apps are as well, but they are typically distributed (for Linux) as either a tarball or via npm.
