study RISC-V proxy kernel and simulater

a project by ArchLinux

I'm planning to do some research about RV32E which has only 16 GPRs, but riscv-pk doesn't have RV32E support so that the RV32E aware GCC ( cannot build riscv-pk. I'm going to study how the proxy kernel works so that I can do some modification to let it support RV32E.

Add ASCIIDOC support to DAPS

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by the SUSE documentation team and hosted on . Currently DAPS supports building documentation from DocBook 4 and 5 sources. The goal of this project is to add support for ASCIIDOC to DAPS. This will allow to easily create all output formats mentioned above with the official SUSE brand from ASCIIDOC without having to take care about templates and other stuff.

Enhance Staging Project process: reduce the gap between Letter staging and ADI staging

a project by mlin7442

We have a known defect exists in Staging Project process, according to the staging project design(in-ring/non-ring), the requests of a application stack can be dispatched to letter staging and adi staging both, in case the request staged in adi staging relies the request staged in letter staging which may causes sometimes the request in adi staging will not be checked-in at the same round, this leads that application stack have different version in TW and those package had request left in adi staging may does not work well as version unmatched to other library. We see this issue happened on Qt5 stack; KDE Applications, etc. For example: a Qt5 stack update, libqt5-qtbase will be staged in a letter staging however libqt5-qtwebview will be staged in a adi staging, once libqt5-qtbase be accepted that libqt5-qtwebview won't be accept in the same round due to it can not be built before libqt5-qtbase merged to Factory but after - 2-phase update. Therefore we need a way to handle those cases to reduce the gap between Letter staging and ADI staging. The concept of this idea:

Migrate to Tumbleweed as base system

a project by joseivanlopez

Currently I am using openSUSE Leap 42.2 as base system on the laptop where I do my daily work (Dell Latitude E7470). As a YaST developer my system is a bit broken (as you may guess) and updates are not possible. So it is time to start from scratch. The idea is to adopt some user friendly system for security copies, migrate to Tumbleweed, make extensible usage of virtual machines and try to stay the base system as clean as possible.

yast2-storage-ng: ensure the best layout is proposed

a project by ancorgs

The theory behind the partitioning proposal of yast2-storage-ng is that all possible distributions of partitions in the disk are evaluated and the best one, according to this criteria, is chosen. But I have found several examples in which is hard believe that the result is actually the optimal distribution of partitions. So I want to invest some time checking if the error is on my side and the code is indeed proposing the best solution and, if that's not the case, improving the decision making of the code.

Y2Storage improve logging

a project by ancorgs

YaST dumps quite information to its own log file (placed at /var/log/YaST2/y2log). That info is very useful to understand and discover what is happening when an issue appears. All YaST modules write into this log file, and the brand new yast2-storage-ng is not an exception. Some improvements are necessary regarding to the logging of this new module: * Libstorage-ng is the C++ library powering the rewrite of the YaST storage stack. For using libstorage-ng from yast2-storage-ng in a more Ruby-like way, we created a wrapper that provides several features like automatic downcasting. But the current downcasting mechanism used by the wrapper causes libstorage-ng to introduce a lot of noise in the YaST logs. It would be nice to reduce that noise.

Add Xen PVH support to grub2

a project by j_gross

PVH domains are a new guest type supported by Xen being as lightweight as possible (e.g. no emulation of legacy devices via qemu) while taking advantage of the hardware virtualization features of the x86 processor. As there is no BIOS for a PVH domain booting is a little bit different than for pure hardware virtualized guests. To be able to start such a guest a little shim is needed to gather some information about the environment (especially memory layout) before the standard kernel boot path can be entered. By using a boot loader like grub2 this shim can be avoided as the memory information is already known by grub2 and stored into the so called zeropage according to the multiboot protocol.
