openSUSE Infrastructure "Factory first"-like policy

a project by tampakrap

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.

Implement QEMU Firmware Config device support in Linuxrc/AutoYaST

a project by dmacvicar

While normally data is passed to linuxrc (including an AutoYaST profile), modern auto-install tools like Ignition from CoreOS support a very interesting method: the QEMU Firmware Config device. This allows to read from inside the VM a blob by reading /sys/firmware/qemu_fw_cfg/by_name/opt/keyname. The driver is included in recent Linux kernels.

Add ASCIIDOC support to DAPS

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by the SUSE documentation team and hosted on https://opensuse.github.io/daps/ . Currently DAPS supports building documentation from DocBook 4 and 5 sources. The goal of this project is to add support for ASCIIDOC to DAPS. This will allow to easily create all output formats mentioned above with the official SUSE brand from ASCIIDOC without having to take care about templates and other stuff.

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.

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.

As kCFI consists in multiple tools, which include compiler plugins, kernel patches and binary analyzers, its deployment is considerably complex. Once code refactoring is finished, the next step consists in setting up proper repositories for the tool and for each submodule, along with scripts and documentation to enable easy configuration and compilation on new environments.

python yast

My colleague David Mulder started a new version of python yast bindings, I've started to use it for some samba related stuff. However my python is poor, my yast UI knowledge is even poorer :-) I'd like to rewrite the ruby yast examples in python, that way I can hopefully learn a bit more about

OpenStack Cloud deployment alternative to automatic mkcloud

a project by vsistek

Aim of this project is to create scenarios for manual deployment using limited feature set of mkcloud. Useful for situations when full mkcloud deployment is broken. It would help qam-cloud team a big time. We can reuse the result later in automation.

study wayland - add weston support for multiple kms devices

an idea by vliaskovitis

I now have a setup with 2 GPUs and want to try to make the reference wayland compositor weston to work on 2 GPUs. Weston currently only supports single kms devices with one or more outputs. Add support to Weston's DRM backend to open several KMS devices, with the ability to use outputs from all of them. The project is a gsoc xorg idea in: https://www.x.org/wiki/SummerOfCodeIdeas/

yast2-storage-ng: ensure the best layout is proposed

a project by ancorgs

The theory behind the partitioning proposal of yast2-storage-ng is that all possible distributions of partitions in the disk are evaluated and the best one, according to this criteria, is chosen. But I have found several examples in which is hard believe that the result is actually the optimal distribution of partitions. So I want to invest some time checking if the error is on my side and the code is indeed proposing the best solution and, if that's not the case, improving the decision making of the code.

Make parted great again!

a project by sparschauer

During regular L3 work I often don't find enough time to work on the command line disk partitioner parted which I maintain. Changes often directly affect yast-storage(-ng) and libstorage(-ng). @aschnell opens bugs faster than I can solve them. Upstream is often slow and often wants patches differently.

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.

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).

yast2-network clean up and start a new API design

a project by teclator

The YaST2 Network module manages network configuration including device configuration, DNS, Routing etc.. The current code is not very object oriented and in many cases there is not a good separation between the business logic and the presentation. The API is also not very clear an many people get confused for example between NetworkInterfaces (class that handles with the ifcfg-files and reside in yast-yast2) and LanItems.
