Demo project for HA using Raspberry pi-s

a project by xarbulu

I have noticed that explaining HA cluster concepts to non technical people is not easy (my parents for example hehe). In order to improve that I would like to create a more visual project using raspberry pi-s.

Evaluate mirrormanager (or mirrormanager2) for download.opensuse.org mirror management

a project by lrupp

As there is no progress around MIrrorPinky since 5 years now, let's say the project is dead and look for something different, which allows Mirror administrators to edit the settings of their own mirrors. The Fedora people developed a WebUI named mirrormanager for their admins - let's see if we can get it somehow connected to our MIrrorBrain database and use this as frontend instead.

Add tests shuffling functionality to paracuke

an idea by e_bischoff

Paracuke is a toy project whose first use was to make it easy to run tests in parallel from coroutines. It's an implementation of Cucumber in Go. Now I would like to see if I can add random tests sequence shuffling and, in case of a failure, reduction to minimal sequence: John Hughes - Don't Write Tests, Generate Them - YouTube.

Write a simple ESMTP mail server in Haskell

a project by psimons

Hackweek 21?

Postmaster desperately needs a mail spool. I need to come up with a good way to store meta information about queued messages. An sqlite database seems like a natural fit because I might want to do some nontrivial queries in there to figure out which messages to deliver (and where). On the other hand, interfacing with sqlite is a bit unpleasant, so instead I might want to write one big JSON file that contains all relevant information. That would certainly suffice for the first version ...

Collectl turbostat module

Neutron driver for Cilium

a project by mrostecki

It's clear that in Kubernetes world, SUSE and openSUSE chose Cilium as the main network provider, which also means choosing BPF and XDP as underlying technologies for implementing datapath and packet filtering. That's different from what we are doing in OpenStack. SUSE OpenStack Cloud provides mostly Open vSwitch DPDK as a network solution.

perf-bench ipc

a project by dbueso

The state of the art of sysv/posix ipc benchmarking is a combination of ad-hoc programs scattered over the internet. While some mechanisms, such as sysv semaphores, have a lot of coverage, others really lack (message queues), and some are simply non-existent; albeit some of the legacy flavors we aren't too concerned with, other than them being functionally correct. Consolidate all this by taking the good benchmarks and implement new ones where needed, such as message queues, everything around the 'perf bench' framework. This will both improve the lives of us who hack on kenrel ipc as well as improve coverage overall. Eventually mmtests should be updated as well.

Separate the QLogo GUI from the interpreter.

a project by jsikes

QLogo is a UCBLogo-compatible implementation of the Logo language using Qt and OpenGL. QLogo was designed with the language interpreter integrated into the GUI. For Hackweek 18 I want to separate the interpreter from the GUI so that QLogo can be run from the command line or from a shell script.

Motivation: You know a particular function name and would like to know which package(s) it comes from. Approximation: It is possible to search in code on Github hoping for a match in upstream repo not being too far from our distro.

Suse Manager - SPA

a project by LuNeves

The experience while navigating throughout the UI of Suse Manager it's not that nice. Whenever we navigate to a new page, the whole page gets refreshed and recreated, even when half of it didn't change a thing, for instance, the menu, topbar, and the notifications WebSocket connection, which in my opinion doesn't provide a smooth experience. This project has the goal to test out an automatic way to transform the Suse Manager UI into a Single Page Application.

Package odpdown

a project by jgrassler

I have been known to talk anybody I held presentations with into using odpdown. That was always a little awkward, since it started off with pip install odpdown, rather than zypper install odpdown. I want to fix this awkwardness and package odpdown properly so it can be installed as a RPM package. I'll also include the auxiliary infrastructure I've added around it over the years (various Makefiles and scripts for generating transcripts from comments) to the package so others can benefit from that stuff, too.
