ethtool ops for netdevsim

a project by mkubecek

This can be seen as a subproject of ethtool netlink interface but from the technical view it's independent. Every new piece of software is going to be buggy and with frequent changes and rewrites, new regressions are introduced. Automated selftests can help a lot but as ethtool deals with hardware devices, we do not want these tests to depend on a specific hardware. The netdevsim driver was created as a virtual device which (unlike e.g. dummy) cannot be used for actual network traffic but implements various configuration interfaces so that it can be used for their (automated) testing.

Investigate py-spy for OpenStack services profiling

an idea by tbechtold

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.

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.

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)

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.

Phylogen: an iterative approach to evolutionary tree analysis

a project by dmulder 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.

Testing mtui using "Rapid software testing" methodology

an idea by ONalmpantis

I will be testing the software we use in QAM called mtui, using the rapid software testing methodology. This means, we will use efficient ways to test the software, learn the software and file bugs in the given time we have.
