voctoweb - archive for recordings of presentations

a project by mmanno

media.ccc.de currently hosts about 5TB of presentation recordings. The main mirrors send about 5TB of videos each in a single month. Several OpenSource conferences are hosted on media, like the last two openSUSE conference, or the "All Systems Go!" conference. What started as a web frontend for ftp.ccc.de in 2007 has become a complex project that integrates deeply into the tooling used by the VOC team.

perf bench epoll

a project by dbueso

While there are plenty of benchmarks that compare different IO multiplexing techniques such as epoll vs poll/select, there's really nothing out there that particularly measures epoll system call latencies under different scenarios. Design and implement a series of performance benchmarks for this call under the 'perf bench' framework.

openSUSE/SUSE branding for "remark"

an invention by okurz


I like light weight presentation frameworks based on plain text files. There are quite some frameworks using the browser for presenting but many require a full blown web server. remark seems to be about the lightest I could find. I could make actual use of it when there would be openSUSE(/SUSE) branding.

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.

Use LUKS UUID in /etc/crypttab

an invention by aschnell

The the LUKS UUID in /etc/crypttab. In general the file system UUID is already used in /etc/fstab. So using the LUKS UUID in /etc/crypttab is a small step towards consistency and should make the system more robust (e.g. avoid bugs like bsc #1063249).

Convert the aging canelatr bot to AWS Lambda

a project by barendartchuk

My friends have been using a supybot bot to help organizing weekly football matches. Over the years, there was demand for moving it to Telegram and supybot-telegram-bridge was born, allowing using the IRC bot in Telegram. Currently only few friends are using IRC and some people asked to have this bot available for other Telegram group chats, so this project aims to move the implementation away from supybot, using AWS Lambda with Flask and Zappa instead.
