Wayland security review.

an idea by yfjiang

One of the significant advantages of Wayland is about security, to isolate input/output of every single windows, encourage non-root user running the core process, as well as discouraging root user running any graphical applications. The project wants to have a close look at Wayland trying to address the questions: - how is wayland exactly integrated in current gnome stack of Tumbleweed/SLE (gnome-shell, mutter)

Build a minetest server inside SUSE network

a project by whdu

An introduction from minetest website: " Minetest is a near-infinite-world block sandbox game and a game engine, inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft, and the like. Minetest is available natively for Windows, OS X, GNU/Linux, Android, and FreeBSD. It is Free/Libre and Open Source Software, released under the LGPL 2.1 or later. " In short, MineTest is a Free and Open Source re-implementation of MineCraft, but it provide many flexible features compare MineCraft. It's not only a game but also a framework for developers to extend so to make their own worlds.

Add Ceph support for Azure RESTful protocols

an idea by dmdiss

Microsoft Azure offers a bunch of interesting RESTful protocols, providing access to objects (Block Blobs, similar to S3 Objects), disk images (Page Blobs) and file systems (Azure Files). The underlying services seem to map pretty closely to RADOS, RBD and CephFS respectively, so adding support for these protocols to Ceph, despite being a lot of work, should be relatively straightforward. I've already worked on implementing a C client for these protocols via Elasto, so it might be worth reusing the same code in implementing the server functionality atop the public librados / librbd / libcephfs libraries. The other option would be to use civetweb/rgw, which is already embedded within Ceph for S3/SWIFT gateway support.

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.

Research on OMEMO for libpurple

a project by whdu

OMEMO is the next generation of end-to-end encryption method for IM applications, which supersedes OTR. Compare to OTR, OMEMO provides many useful new features. Currently, the support for libpurple is still in development. I found two projects - lurch and libpurple-omemo-plugin. They are in early phase so it is probably not very stable and few features are missing.

Learn to use pen testing tools

a project by bryanstephenson

Take some online classes for penetration testing tools and then practice using them. The goal is to learn enough to provide some value for pen testing of real products. Originally I was hoping to have a real cloud to pen test, but that appears unlikely so I plan to set up an Apache web server instead as the system under test. It won't matter much as the goal is to learn to use the tools.

Learn and use meson

a project by JonathanKang

meson[0], a replacement to autotools, is very popular nowadays. It's a lot faster than autotools as far as what I hear and see. Besides lots of GNOME projects has been ported to meson. As one of the maintainers of GNOME Logs[1], I need learn meson and try to port Logs to meson for faster building. *[0] http://mesonbuild.com/

Adopt mkdocs-pandoc

an idea by jgrassler

Back in the day I wrote mkdocs-pandoc, a tool that lets you generate Pandoc from documentation in mkdocs documentation. The target format for mkdocs is HTML pages. The target format for Pandoc is not really limited: you can use it to generate HTML, asciidoc, PDF (via LaTeX), EPUB and many others. Now I do not really have a use for mkdocs-pandoc at the moment, so I've been letting its maintenance slip - basically I'm not maintaining it anymore. It is still a useful tool, and I'd be happy to see it dusted off and adopted by someone who uses it actively enough to maintain it. I'll ask around among the various folks who forked it (there are a few), but maybe there's someone at SUSE who'd be interested as well.

Package odpdown and get it into OpenSUSE

a project by jgrassler

I am currently using odpdown for presentations (tl;dr: it lets you write your slides in Markdown and generates Libreoffice slides from that and a Libreoffice slide master (such as a corporate identity template)). It is currently not available in OpenSUSE so it needs to be packaged and submitted to Factory. If somebody other than me wants to take this on, please ping me. There used to be a package in the author's home project on OBS which has since vanished. I think I've still got a checkout somewhere...

Make maildirproc IMAP ready

a project by jgrassler

I currently use maildirproc for filtering Maildirs downloaded by offlineimap and like its highly flexible approach to filtering a lot (filters Python code). This works very well, except for one problem: after filtering, the next offlineimap run deletes the messages that where previously in Inbox on the mail server and uploads them to the folders they were sorted into. 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.

Improve kernel crashdump upload infrastructure

a project by puzel

Kernel dumps, provided by our customers, are uploaded by Customer Support to ziu.suse.de and shared via NFS to L3 servers at which they're analyzed. This procedure works, but likely has room for improvement. The goal of the project is to understand the workflows and needs of Customer Support, L3 and engineering (Labs) and to implement a system to automate parts of the workflows.

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.

Pair Programming Test Drive/Probefahrt

a project by mamorales

Are you interested in pairing? Are you wondering whether it is something that would help you and your team members in your current project? Would you like to try it out before you fully commit to such an extreme idea? Then this is your lucky day Sir/Madam! 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.
