fun hardware peripherials

a project by michals

There are many fun peripherials that you can connect to a RPi but PC users are not left out either * attiny85 <a href=";&gt;&lt;img height="48" src=";/&gt;&lt;/a> has SPI and i2c interface so could be possibly used as USB<->i2c or USB<->SPI bridge. Unfortunately, the USB support needs some non-standard timings so there is quite a bit of integration and debugging needed.

kCFI Release

a project by jmoreira

kCFI is a tool that enables the compilation of commodity Operating Systems with Control-Flow Integrity protection. kCFI first prototype was developed/implemented during a PhD program held in the University of Campinas, in Brazil. Although fully functional, the tool remains in a very experimental shape, needing to be refactored prior to being released. 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.

Check out hamster-lib time tracking tool

a record by mwilck

I'm using hamster time tracker for personal time tracking and project accounting, and have volunteered to be the maintainer for openSUSE. Unfortunately both hamster 1.x and hamster 2.x are basically unmaintained. The project has been undergoing a major refactoring for a year already, transitioning to a new architecture based on [hamster-lib]. I'd like to explore this, and to check whether it's ready to be packaged for openSUSE to reach a broader audience (I fear not).

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.

I propose to create a tool that will work for openSUSE.

Loosely coupled integration between SUSE Manager and Machinery

an idea by joachimwerner

The Machinery project adds one feature to SUSE Manager that even Salt in its current state can not fully provide: You can scan a complete system for all programs, configuration files, users, and services that are present, and compare those over time. The first goal of this hack week project is to create a standalone server (or container) that is going to be the Machinery "collector", and then loosely couple it through Salt, e.g. via a Salt Runner like the Spacewalk Runner or a Salt Proxy.

My own picture gallery using Flickr API

a project by mvancura

Flickr provides not only a large space for photos but also nice features around, including tags and other metadata allowing sorting of photos by different criteria - but one is very limited in the design of something like "frontpage" of such galleries. The solution is to use 3rd party JS solutions using Flickr API, like nanogallery. The purpose of this project is to learn to create such galleries, the best would be to add social features of flickr directly there, like comments or faves.

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

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.
