Information Architecture Redesign

a project by loquacity

I'd like to consider the possibilities for redesigning SUSE documentation. Mark Baker ("Every Page is Page One") says "include it all, filter it afterwards" which is the exact antithesis of what we currently offer. Let's consider how we can move documentation into the future: search driven, user friendly, accessible, and in line with the way our readers use the rest of the internet.

OpenCI - test github PRs on openQA

an idea by coolo

We have quite some projects on openSUSE and os-autoinst organizations that are using travis-ci.org for testing their code. As travis-ci is using an ubuntu VM (or container) there are quite some things we can't test - or test by using SUSE containers within ubuntu VMs. During hackweek I want to evaluate the github API for CI services and try to marry it with openqa.opensuse.org - I'll need a web service that does the tracking, but I'm optimistic that it can be done in a week.

status page

an idea by tampakrap

The openSUSE Heroes team provides a status page under https://status.opensuse.org, which is based on Cachet. While it is very nice to provide a status page to the users, this one has a few key issues explained below, * The need of the DB requires syncing between locations. Thus it would have been better to replace it with a static web page (see also at the offsite meeting summary link above, which also includes links of status pages of other infra teams).

Line wrap change oblivious diff

an idea by mkoutny

There is not always a strict commit discipline separating functional changes and formatting, sometimes formatting change is inevitable. Changes that rewrap lines pollute diff output and make it hard to read. (This applies to texts where line wraps bear no semantics.) 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.)

Explore replacements for genksyms/modversions for kabi checks

Improving the Security of OpenPGP USB Token with a Secure Chip

a project by biergaizi

OpenPGP Card is an ISO/IEC 7816-4 compatible smartcard that is integrated with many OpenPGP functions, including signature, encryption, and authentication. It provides an trustful computing environment isolated from the host computer, to guard one's private keys from attacks and exposures. ZetiControl in Germany is the first manufacturer of OpenPGP Card based on BasicCard platform. Since then, compatible USB tokens have also been manufactured, such as Yubikey and Nitrokey. Currently for compatible USB tokens, there are two approaches of OpenPGP Card implementation:

logorator: an offline internal analytics tool

a project by dleidi

There are customer use cases where sharing information via internet or uploading data somewhere is not acceptable for security reasons: this avoid the usage of some tool like the most famous Google Analytics, and prevent developers from understanding how the web application is used by the customers. I don't want to reinvent the wheel and re-implement a copy of Google Analytics, but getting inspired from it, the goal is to reuse information that we already have to extrapolate an analysis of the WebApp customer usage. I started this project with the aim of learning a programming language where I am not so comfortable yet (python). The purpose of this Hack Week project is to bring this basic tool at a minimal stable and usable state with the purpose of analyze the usage of a WebApp in scenarios where the WebApp is used in an internal network only (offline, disconnected from the internet).

Sometimes you have a problem in a specific area but you don't know who to ask to, or even if you do, you don't know there were many other people with the same knowledge/experience you could have ask before.

Clean up the Uyuni frontend stack

a project by j_renner

Many of the Uyuni / SUSE Manager web UIs are still based on the no longer maintained Struts framework (version 1.2!) and implemented as JSP pages, while we added newer features based on the Spark framework and React. For me there is a vision of using only one technology stack (especially just one web framework, frontend framework and template engine) eventually, so it is about time to get rid of the old stack. While this is surely a huge effort, why not start with a new login page and then go from there rewriting other pages one by one? Things to look at in particular:

Learn Rust by writing an IRC bouncer

A good way of getting to know a new programming language is... writing some code. So although there are some good IRC bouncers, like ZNC, we want to write another one just for learning.

Because it is not rocket science, but it implies network communication (acting as client and as server at the same time), handling concurrent connections... in a few words: it sounds fun.

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.

Tools to make keysigning fun again (replacement for caff)

an idea by kbabioch

There is a tool called caff, which is the de-facto standard when dealing with keysigning (on a large scale, e.g. after a key signing party). This tool hasn't been touch in years, is written and configured in Perl (hence cannot be read and/or maintained :smile:) and is not easy to package, because of a lot of dependencies, etc. It is not even available in our default repositories (at least for Tumbleweed). 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:

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders The analysis and selection of requirements are important parts of any release planning process.

hsed.js

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).
