Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

openQA IDE

a project by coolo

There is a running gag built into openQA called interactive mode. It goes like this: "if you need the interactive mode, it's broken". The reason: the so called interactive mode is a collection of hacks - in theory making it possible to update needles in a running test. But in fact it's a UI desaster that almost never works. So the goal of this hackweek project is to get rid of it - and instead build a real control from the webui into the backend allowing tests to be written on the fly including needle creation/updates. Easy as that.

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

Learn to speak, read and write German

an invention by cjschroder2

My German reading and speaking skills suck. I've forgotten everything except "Mehr Bier, bitte". A week of intensive immersion ought to enable me to order food as well. And converse with my German team members. Especially when we go out for meals and drinks. This should have a concrete goal, so I will write a short story in German to demonstrate my amazing new fluency*.

Mission: Our company org chart consists mostly of teams + their project managers. teams.suse.com is an application that gives an overview about the various SUSE team resources like org-chart, office locations, mission descriptions, links to team pages/blogs etc. It should combine the various data sources that are already there (eguide, floor, externaltools etc.) and provide a way to enrich this data.

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.

Implement >=z10 (s390x) support to QEMU

a project by mbenes

Last time I checked QEMU lacked support for >= z10 processors. Thus one cannot run SLE12 and newer in a virtual machine on non-s390x host. I'd like to improve the situation during Hackweeks.

Play with Matrix.org as replacement for IRC

a project by dmacvicar

Matrix.org is a project to create a protocol and server implementation to replace IRC. Unlike closed tools like Slack, or even open Slack clones like Rocket.chat, 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.

Improve Ruby

a project by ammartinez

Let's use the Hackweek to improve Ruby, the programming language I use every day. It is while using a language when you can realised that things that need/can to be improved, so there are many things that only Ruby developers can raise up. Also, getting involved in the development of Ruby will help to get a better understanding of how it works. So I will take my ideas/concerns to the Ruby community and implement some of the them in the code of the Ruby core. Ruby features and bugs are tracked in https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-trunk/issues
