Rocket.Chat Protocol Plugin for Thunderbird

an idea by mook_work

While SUSE still runs mainly on IRC, we still need to interact with others, some of which occurs on Slack and Rocket.Chat. I'd like to have one chat application with a good overview of all the various channels I'm in, across the different servers. Sadly, Pidgin isn't a choice here because they don't have a built in web browser, which is required for SAML logins with Rocket.Chat.

Play with as replacement for IRC

a project by dmacvicar is a project to create a protocol and server implementation to replace IRC. Unlike closed tools like Slack, or even open Slack clones like, Matrix is not focused on a web-client only, but on the protocol to cover all types of clients (text, desktop, web), it is federated (no single server), and it covers good IRC integration (the public matrix server is even on Freenode), and it adds features that Slack clones have like persistent history, pictures, etc.

Bootstrap portusctl as a separate repository

a project by mssola

Right now portusctl is a tool which is embedded into the Portus source code. This was done out of simplicity and with the hope that we would share as much code as possible with Portus itself. However: - portusctl got bigger and bigger, and it starts to look like a good candidate for getting it in another repository.

a project by dmacvicar

After an internal call for help to take over 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.

Research telemetry for (open)SUSE products

an idea by dmacvicar

Most of design is done still with a embarrassing amount of data. Having released software for decades, we still don't know exactly what module is the most used, what workflows the customers are following, where do customers fail. It is all guesses and opinions. The idea of this project is to research:

Rsuma2.0 (Rspec for Suse manager)

an idea by dmaiocchi

When developing a new feature on Suse Manager, it become handy to have a minimal fast suite that performs some tests to see if basic functionality work again and no regression is added. The tests should use rspec and run chrome headless driver.

Check and extended the QMK Firmware for mechanical keyboards

a project by SKaim

A lot of custom-built or ethusiast-level keyboards such as the Planck, Zeal60, Let's Split and many more use an open-source firmware called QMK. This firmware allows you to freely define your keyboard layout and add a lot of functionality (i.e. emitting a different keycode on long and short keypress, dual-function keys, leader keys (think of vi's :)). We could use the Hack Week to add functionality, check the source code for security issues and add support for more keyboards. If you own a qmk-running mechanical keyboard or plan on doing so feel free to join me :)

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. E.g. something along the lines of

minima: small, easy alternative to SUSE Manager (in Go)

1% of SUSE Manager's functionality in 0.1% of the lines of code

Let's create a much simpler SUSE Manager — one you could use at home! Users should be able to deploy and operate in minutes with minimal configuration, while still retaining the very core features that make SUSE Manager useful!
