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).

Learn Kyber multiqueue I/O scheduler

an idea by gqjiang

There are some multiqueue I/O scheduler nowadays, such as bfq and kyber. And bfq is really complex (about 10K LOC)and error prone from my understanding, since kyber only has less than 1k LOC, it should be more easier and practical to read/play it in one week.

Desktop comparison between Leap and Fedora (e.g. software update stack, gnome-initial-setup, CJK support etc.)

an idea by yfjiang

The project to give an investigation of the difference between openSUSE Leap (aligned with SLE), Tumbleweed (SLE's future release) and Fedora (a good gnome based Desktop outside SUSE release family), trying to have a better understanding of what the Leap/SLE desktop can possibly be as a general platform in future releases. The investigation will focus on gnome-software update stack, initial setup of the system after installation, as well as the CJK support. Surprising difference is not excluded during playing across distributions.

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.
