Writing PC game tests for openQA

a project by clanig

Although availability of computer games on Linux has improved a lot there is way more potential for openSUSE to fire them up. This project is about improving the usability of openSUSE for gaming to appreciate the gamers who run openSUSE as their primary OS. The final goal for a number of improvements is that each gamer can play flawlessly without a single issue.

Compatibilux (Game launcher for old and new games and applications)

a project by fos

There are several game launchers for Linux already (like Lutris or GR-lida), but none of them is focused on compatibility with old Linux games or other ancient native applications. At the same time it is getting more and more difficult to get those old applications to run on modern Linux distributions. This is a learning project for me, so the goal is not to extend any existing GUI frontend, but get familiar with various techniques and see how far I can get without any previous knowledge.

A naive idea to compromise confidential level of embargoed vulnerabilities

an idea by zhangxiaofei

Disclaimer: I have zero knowledge on security studies and very little knowledge on our internal security workflow. The idea popped out from the observation on my daily work which includes backporting security fixes, occasionally a couple of which are embargoed. Lashes are welcome if you find the idea stupid. When an embargoed vulnerability reaches SUSE, the related bugs / fixes are usually only exposed to a small group of people including maintainers of the affected package. While bugzilla can made an issue private for that purpose, For OBS I'm unaware of an option like "private project / package" that blocks unwanted access (please correct me if it does exist).

disconnectable/offlineable development: RPM repos/OBS events/Git repos/etc. over IPFS

a project by jzerebecki

On a smaller internet connection or offline the development experience can be severely degraded. This has a big impact on hackathons or other events where multiple people want to get the same content. Workarounds over USB sticks are less usable than an automated way can be. A content addressable transport that can work on a local network without internet would be better. There is a downside of local content addressable transports compared to protocols like HTTPS that AFAIK has no finished solution yet: Participants in the network can see what you request. If one wants to use such a transport by default this needs to be solved, otherwise it will remain an option that will only be used on networks where this downside is deemed acceptable. Find, ask around for more and summarize possible solutions.

Create a web interface for the Bard music manager to stream music locally (and other improvements)

a project by alarrosa

The Bard music manager is a command line tool to organize local music I've been developing over the last years (in Hackweek 15 it was called finddupmusic). It parses your local music collection and stores the metadata in a sqlite database, then it can generate audio fingerprints and recognize similar/duplicated songs. It can also be used to play music (using internally mpv), set ratings, fix metadata, etc. The purpose of this project would be to create a web interface for Bard, so users can use their browsers to get music streamed to their computers/phones (with format conversions on-the-fly). Probably it should implement the AURA protocol for this.

Salt Support Tools (try to ditch supportconfig)

a project by bmaryniuk

Currently Salt is using supportconfig utility alongside with the SUSE Manager installation. Every single bugreport for Salt, that contains its logs are always useless that regard. It might work for SUSE Manager, but for Salt it doesn't. And even after asking user to switch the cluster into a debug mode or even trace mode, it is still far away from being useful enough, so the supporter don't need to dance with the tambourine around the fire, guessing what ghost just munged what component. What if we can reuse Salt's internal tooling and develop some more tools that will not just grab logs/sysinfo from what is already there, but also get much more data, "x-ray" minions, turn them into a debug mode, collect right data, perform tests realtime etc?

Similarly to -w, --ignore-all-space option of the diff(1) program add an option that will make the comparing algorithm ignore changes that only rewrap lines. (It's upon the implementation how to approach rewrapped and changed lines but no semantical changes should be hidden from the user.)

Extend urlwatch to support monitoring of GitHub (and other git) repos

an idea by kbabioch

I'm currently using urlwatch to watch for new releases in upstream projects. It monitors the output of a URL and notifies you about any changes. This works fine for URLs, but there is currently no official support for GitHub. Due to the nature of the GitHub webpages, there is a some change each time you access the page and it is difficult to come up with the right set of filters. Since there is an official API that can be used to ask for changes in a particular repository, it would be nice if urlwatch had support for it. I've worked on a prototype in the past, but never came around to cleaning it up, and making it configurable through urlwatch's configuration files. Upstream is interested in this feature and is willing to merge it.

In general there seems to be a certain kind of frustration with this software, but there is no real alternative available yet. Ideally the new toolset should allow to organize a complete keysigning party, e.g. it should assist the organizer with:

Improve supplychain security in the build service

an idea by kbabioch

In the past I've worked on a set of scripts to identify potential for improvement of the supply chain within our build service. For now RPM files can be scanned for unused signature files that are available upstream and look for potentially unused https:// links, although they are available. These scripts work on a prototype-basis, but there is a lot of follow-up work to do, e.g.:

How-to guide on switching from docker/docker-compose to a cri-o/k8s world

an idea by suntorytimed

How-to guide on switching from docker/docker-compose to a cri-o/k8s world In this project I basically want to explore how you can move your containers (including its data and overlayfs2 layers) from Docker based docker-compose setup to a cri-o based k8s setup. This will mainly include doing a lot of research and try to find out the differences and how to transfer all the stuff without much downtime. It might also include some tooling effort.

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders

a project by rtsvetkov

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders The analysis and selection of requirements are important parts of any release planning process. Most practices focuse on release planning based on plan-driven optimization models. Nevertheless, solving the release planning problem mechanistically is difficult in an agile development context with multiple stakeholders.

get ibus-deepspeech speech recognition engine for IBus working on openSUSE

an idea by aspiers

As described in https://hackaday.com/2018/01/17/speech-recognition-for-linux-gets-a-little-closer/ Michael Sheldon created an IBus plugin that lets DeepSpeech work with nearly any X application. He’s also provided PPAs that should make it easy to install for Ubuntu or related distributions. Would be great to get this working on openSUSE!

L3: Improve crash-setup, develop a core-setup

a project by sparschauer

The current crash-setup source is located here. Pretty much is working nicely but it doesn't care for the debug source making it impossible to use the crash> gdb list *<symbol> command right away. This is bug 997558 which should be worked on.

Sat solve product dependencies on the server

a project by wstephenson

Overview

With the recent explosion of product extensions, modules, bases, the decomposition of monolithic base products into modules, and the amount of churn in product composition between releases, the task of calculating product dependencies and migrations between products has approached the complexity of package management. We have a state of the art tool for solving package dependencies, so why not apply it to the new domain?

hsed.js

an idea by persmule

hsed.js is to html what sed(1) is to texts. sed(1) can proceed texts with given regexp, but for html, its working level is too low, so I decide to build a tool to apply arbitrary JS codes upon html documents to proceed, in order to modify their content in a batch manner. Headless browsers like PhantomJS have already provided needed functionalities, so this tool may be implemented as a JS program interpreted with a Headless browsers. If so, the designation of its CLI interface may become a challenge, as Headless browsers usually do not provide command line option parsers like getopt(3).

Better support for Chromebooks

an idea by suntorytimed

Better support for Chromebooks Chromebooks do have very limited hardware in terms of storage and RAM. But it is still the cheapest solution to a truly open source notebook, as it allows to replace its coreboot based bootloader with your own coreboot and payload (f.e. Tiano Core or Seabios).

FATE sync for Taiga

an idea by suntorytimed

What is Taiga? On the first view Taiga (taiga.io) is a open source Trello replacement. On the second it is way more than that. Taiga does offer a lot more integration into Scrum and Kanban Workflow than Trello could ever do (even if you would pay for all those neat power-ups). Taiga is offered as hosted and self-hosted (as it is completely open source) and does offer all features in payed and free accounts on the hosted solution. Unlike tools like Gitlab where there are premium features that are held back for the enterprise offering this tool is developed in the open (https://github.com/taigaio).
