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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

crash-python

a project by jeff_mahoney

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.

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.

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.

Scripts and recipes for setting up VMs with multipath and other compex storage stacks

a project by mwilck

Customers are using complex storage stacks such as LVM over dm-crypt over MD RAID over multipath over iSCSI and FC with LOTs of LUNs, and we're facing problems in that area which are usually very hard to reproduce. It's also hard to guard against regressions. Being able to quickly and reliably set up VMs with various types of storage / multipath is a key part of testing multipath. It's doable, but cumbersome and has a steep learning curve. I want to create easy-to-understand manual recipes plus scripts that are both easy to understand / customize and deploy.
