Supportconfig to VM/Container

an idea by puzel

Supportconfig contains plenty of information about the system at which it has been generated. Common task within the support chain is reproduction of the customer reported issues in our environment. The goal is to develop a tool which takes supportconfig as input and produces either a VM or a container image, resembling as closely as possible the system described by the suportconfig (e.g. installed SP, package versions, storage layout, networking layout, ...). Benefit: help with setting up the reproduction environment. On top of that, having a workflow and associated tooling+infrastructure to pass the VM/container through the support chain (backline->L3->product engineering and/or QAM) could avoid duplicated work.

Add a y2log viewer to openQA's WebUI

a project by cwh

Quite a big part of openQA is testing the installation of SUSE products. All of them are installed by YaST. So a big quantity of problems found during openQA testruns are YaST problems. To find out what has gone wrong during installation YaST developers need to download the tarball containing the logs, unpack it and find the y2log among many other log files. That makes it quite complicated to just have a quick view on a problem.

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.

Introduce Kitchen tests for the Suse Openstack Cloud chef cookbooks

an idea by itxaka

There is a lack of testing for our infrastructure code, in the chef part. While we have openstack tests that indicate that the chef cookbooks did their work (kind of) there is multitude of small details that can get away and not come up in the openstack tests that refer to infrastructure and changing cookbooks can lead to disasters without proper testing. Introducing kitchen into the equation with a mix of docker to test how if cookbooks work and deploy exactly as we expect them to. It will make it easier to make changes to some more complex cookbook and test them in a real deployment, without having to wait for mkcloud to do a full run. It also means that its easier and faster to test them locally as we dont need to wait for a full run of 3-5 nodes to start,install,configure but we have a ready docker image that is used as deployment node.

Depending on how many emails one gets, this is a colossal waste of bandwidth. It is technically possible to filter and move on the server side, as proven by imapfilter. I would like to add the same capability to maildirproc by implementing an IMAP client.

Add Xen PVH support to grub2

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.

Create a tool to generate vCPU/vNUMA topology for virtual machines

a project by jfehlig

Most large workloads such as SAP HANA require special, highly optimized configuration to run in a virtual machine. Virtual resources such as memory and CPU must be carefully configured to ensure optimum performance of the virtual machine workload. Default VM configuration created by tools such as virt-install are not optimized and often result in poor performance of large workloads due to memory access latencies and incorrect/incomplete information available to the VM's task scheduler. Currently, users deploying large workloads must manually optimize virtual CPU and memory resources, which can be error-prone and if not done properly can actually degrade performance. This project aims to create a tool that can produce suggested vCPU and vNUMA configuration based on a VM configuration template and capabilities of the target virtual machine host.

Within the Cloud Foundry project you are expected to pair pretty much every time you are working on something. In the BOSH OpenStack CPI team this isn't the exception, so I've been doing it for the past 15 months. I'd like to transfer some of that experience to you fellow SUSE colleague. We can discuss about the pros and cons that this agile methodology has. For example, there are many misconceptions on how to pair, for once, having the right hardware makes a huge difference. During Hack Week 16 you have the chance to test drive a dual-control workstation (see image) which I believe is one of the biggest differentiators to have a good experience when pairing full time.

openSUSE Infrastructure "Factory first"-like policy

The SLE15 development model follows the Factory First policy, where all submissions need to go first to openSUSE:Factory and then to SLE15 repos. This way more bugs are fixed, less patches get lost, less backporting is happening etc. Our openSUSE infrastructure is using salt for configuration management. This was working fine, but suddenly we had to split the openSUSE from the SUSE-DMZ services into separate VLANs, thus the salt codebase had to be split as well. The code itself is mostly formulas and quite similar states between the two set of services though. The only real difference was in the pillars, and even there there was a lot of duplication.

Reanimate djmount

a project by mwilck

djmount is a neat idea - see UPnP/AV resources in your directly in the file system. Unfortunately the code hasn't been maintained for ~10y, and - at least for me - seems to by plagued by various bugs causing crashes and what not. There's currently no official openSUSE package. This project aims to pick up the code, fix bugs, and make the tool actually useful again. The code itself seems to be in quite a good shape, so this should be doable.

Make YaST Testing Independent of Keyboard Shortcuts

a project by shundhammer

Motivation / Problem

Right now, our QA team tests YaST with OpenQA very much based on keyboard shortcuts: Set the keyboard focus to the "User Name" input field with Alt-U, enter a user name, [Tab] to get to the next field, enter more text, finally Alt-N to activate the "Next" button.

audio emojis for Rocket.chat

an idea by rsimai

We recently changed from IRC to Rocket.chat and now all enjoy the colorful richness of emojis, and in particular animated emoticons such as the :partyparrot: that so much helps productivity. But there's a latent feeling something still is missing and the answer is simple: audio emojis! We need a feature to send audio emojis to the group and individuals that play on the recipients phones/speakers no matter what. They can be short, they can be looped, same as image emojis they need to catch attention and not allow the user to focus on something else than the chat, e.g. a smart burping to be sent every day after dinner, a looped very funny laughing when somebody announces to have broken the CI system shortly before the release or just some gulping noise which is what you preferably want to do with the :partyparrot:

My own picture gallery using Flickr API

a project by mvancura

Flickr provides not only a large space for photos but also nice features around, including tags and other metadata allowing sorting of photos by different criteria - but one is very limited in the design of something like "frontpage" of such galleries. The solution is to use 3rd party JS solutions using Flickr API, like nanogallery. The purpose of this project is to learn to create such galleries, the best would be to add social features of flickr directly there, like comments or faves.

My Little Manager

a project by lucidd

Yes this project is yet another project for creating a Suse Manager clone. The motivation for that comes mainly from my need for a simple suse manager that i can easily run at home without the massive overhead involved in suse manager setup. Also since i mainly need to manage opensuse machines most of which are tumbleweed, suse managers repository model does not really work well in that case.

Learn QT Linguist and improve translations for FET (a timetable creator)

a project by juliogonzalezgil

The idea is getting a general knowledge of how QT Linguist works, and help FET with some translations. FET is a timetable creator, that is available for openSUSE at https://en.opensuse.org/FET, and allows a user to create a timetable, usually for educational institutions, with a lot of different available constraints.

OBS GitLab integration

a project by adrianSuSE

First part is to support automated builds on git pushes also with gitlab, similar to what we do already with github.com. This means OBS would get notificated in a save way to refetch sources and start build on each commit. Second part is to support automated branching when a pull request gets created. This allows CI similar to travis on pull requests.

Analyze supportconfig data with ELK (elasticsearch, logstash, kibana)

a project by kwk

We all pant for customer data. Which hardware do customers run ? Which packages are installed ? Which services are running ? etc. pp. A lot of this data is in the supportconfig. But this is neither collected, nor centralized, not easily accessible.

Upstreaming of mediatek helios board

an idea by mbrugger

The only Mediatek "hacker" board available is from 96 Boards [1]. Unfortunately up to now there is nearly no mainline support. Idea would be to improve this situation. The idea would be to get the pin-controller merged first and then hopefully most of the other stuff can be just added (fingers crossed...)

Deploying software.opensuse.org

a project by dmacvicar

After an internal call for help to take over software.opensuse.org deployment, I spend some time studying the code in order to find out what would it mean to take it over. The main reason was a PR from the community that has not been merged, and deployment depending on internal SUSE employees.

Linux Memory Subsystem research

an idea by osalvador

Currently I am doing a research about the memory subsystem under Linux, and I would like to seize the opportunity to go on during the HackWeek. The idea is to end up with a paper that explains the memory subsystem from the very beginning (initialization), and then continue with different areas of interest (oom, hotplug memory, page_cache, slab).
