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.

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.

It won't matter much as the goal is to learn to use the tools.

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.

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.
