evaluate usage of beast as a http client for radosgw

an idea by abhishekl

Since RGW already supports beast as the default frontend from nautilus onwards, evaluate the usage of beast as a http client as well. Main implementation would be the need for connection pooling and a higher level http api

Learn Vim scripting

an idea by npower

I use vim (yes one of those people) but I am a real non power user, I'd like something like Aurelien's smbmode for Emacs to be available when I open samba log files in vim. I have no idea how possible or not this is. I came across this tutorial/book some time ago but didn't find the time to look at it. I'd like to go through the book and hopefully have a crack at starting a samba log reader plugin for vim (duplicating the features from smbmode)

Phylogen: an iterative approach to evolutionary tree analysis

a project by dmulder

https://github.com/dmulder/phylogen As part of a graduate project I created the phylogen script, which combines the ASTRAL and IQTREE analysis tools into one iterative approach to finding the highest bootstrap score tree for various species of Mayflies. At the completion of the project, there was some work left undone, and I had a few ideas on how to improve the average bootstrap score of the final tree.

Azure File Service compatible REST frontend for CephFS

an idea by dmdiss

The Azure File Service protocol offers a RESTful interface for files and directories which are simultaneously exported via SMB. Ceph already provides separate (S3 compatible) REST and SMB (Samba) gateways, but they expose storage object via different layers and as a result don't allow for cross protocol access to the same data.

Clustered Samba with Ceph omap as a replacement for CTDB key-value storage

a project by dmdiss

Ceph offers a highly scalable and fault-tolerant storage system. Samba is already capable of sharing data located on the Ceph Filesystem, however scale-out sharing (the same data exposed by multiple Samba nodes) currently requires the use of CTDB for consistent and coherent state across Samba cluster nodes. In such a setup CTDB provides a clustered database with persistent key-value data storage and locking. Database usage is abstracted out via a generic dbwrap interface. Ceph's librados library provides an API for the storage and retrieval of arbitrary key-value data via the omap functions. A watch/notify protocol is also provided as a mechanism for synchronising client state (locking). Key-value data stored in the RADOS back-end inherits the same redundancy features as regular objects, making it a potentially good candidate as a replacement for CTDB in scale-out Samba clusters.

Integrate Bard with MusicBrainz and implement a proper web interface

a project by alarrosa

My music manager, Bard, was improved in the last hackweek with a very simple React-based web interface but I didn't like the result at all (basically, after learning React I noticed I didn't like it and all the dependencies and the complexity it added) so since then, I've reimplemented the web interface using just jQuery. Also, in the last months I've added musicbrainz data structures to the database (which was also ported to use Postgresql) to prepare bard to use MusicBrainz's data. I also stopped using other python libraries to read audio files and use the ffmpeg libraries directly instead with a c++ wrapper implemented inside Bard which is much much faster. In this hackweek I'll try to finish the integration of Bard with MusicBrainz (basically, import the needed MB data to the database) and use it to generate a web interface that shows and uses that information to organize music. This would allow to show information and for example perform searches for songs not only on the main artist but also on performers or even mixer (see for an example all information available on this Queen album)

Geekos x Externaltools

a project by farahschueller

The day has come to finally merge more and more apps into one single place, and this time it shall be externaltools. I'd like to merge functionality of externaltools into geekos, as they share quite a lot of concerns. This way, we can beat fragmentation and have a single tool to track teams, tools and floors.

Investigate py-spy for OpenStack services profiling

py-spy is a python profiler (similar to pyflame (which is unmaintained)). The profiler can be used to create profiling data for running processes. This might be useful to find bottlenecks in OpenStack services.

Learning MachineLearning by example

a project by apritschet

This is my attempt to catch up on the field of machine learning. In order to not "waste" time of exercising with dummy data the Security team came up with a couple of interesting questions: 1. Is a software mentioned in a bug or security issue relevant in incident management (Tagging as Not for us)?

SUSE Manager for Retail Instructional Video Tutorial

a project by lkotek

The goal of this project is to create video tutorial describing configuration of SUSE Manager for Retail. There is a precise documentation describing every step of its configuration, but SUSE Manager for Retail is still a very complex piece of software and there is a lot of things to be configured configured properly (proxy configuration, Kiwi image building, DNS, DHCP, etc.) in specific order to get it finally working.

Rados backend for NVMe
