Project Maxfeld: Cultural Onboarding to counter unknown unknowns

a project by mfeilner

I promised to start this project way earlier, but I think Hackweek will be a great time to make a start. The project once was called $BABELFISH, later "Rumsfeld", to honor the creator of the "Unknown unknowns" meme, now it's name is Maxfeld.

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

a project by bchou

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:

Add branding to DAPS and the suse-xsl-stylesheets

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS is the tool used by the SUSE documentation team to generate HTML, ePUB, PDF, ... output of the SUSE manuals from DocBook XML sources. It uses the suse-xsl-stylesheets for this purpose. Currently three different suse-xsl-stylesheet brands exist: SUSE, DAPS, openSUSE. Branding is done by adjusting the xsl-stylesheets directly. It would be desirable to be able to easily change the branding, e.g. via a simple config file in the style of /etc/sysconfig files, since most people cannot hack XSLT. This is also the number one enhancement request we get from DAPS users outside of SUSE.

SSH (Suse Social Hack) game

a project by nmoudra

This is a project to create a "larp" game for SUSE employees (or anyone geeky enough to play this) which will be based on computer related knowledge. The core of the game is to search for other people and clues for solving the main goal by "connecting" or "hacking" according to given HW and SW roles. 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 :)
