Improving picotm

a project by tdz

Picotm is a system-level transaction manager. It provides transactional semantics to low-level C operations, such as modifying data structures, (some) file I/O, memory access. Picotm also handles error detection and recovery. It's fully modular, so new functionality can be added. For the Hackweek, I want to dedicate some time to picotm. I want to finish some of the refactoring work that I have been working on. If there's time left, I'd like to investigate two-phase commits and how to support them in picotm.

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.

Improve GUI interface for FriCAS

a project by zcjia

The current GUI of FriCAS is ancient and difficult to use. I plan to improve that by using modern GUI frameworks, at least to make a working proof-of-concept demo to show this idea works.

work on sunxi a64 cpufreq driver (for teres-1, pine64)

an idea by mbrugger

With the teres-1 [1] laptop we have a first arm64 device we could use as end-users. Much work to run mainline kernel + u-boot was done already. But power consumption of the laptop is not optimal (~2 hours of battery life time). The idea is to support cpufreq for the A64 SoC upstream, which would enable the teres-1, pine64 and pinebook to run more power efficient. up to now it seems nobody is working on the driver [2].

Rewrite Jangouts using React/Redux

a project by IGonzalezSosa

We already tried to improve the Jangouts data model in the past and, although we made quite some progress, we did not finish it. I've been playing a bit with React and Redux lately, and I would like now to try a different approach replacing Angular with that combo. Using Vue.js might be another option too. Of course, we are not going to rewrite Jangouts in just one week, but let's see how far we can go. By the way, the redesign branch contains some interesting stuff from one of the GSoC that we should consider.

Properly package Quick Event orienteering management software

a project by LPechacek

It ain't rocket science, it ain't thrilling, it's just useful. Quick Event is an established orienteering management software but it is still distributed in non-standard form for Linux distros. Package the software in standard packages for major distributions.

ssh key management in QAM

a project by pluskalm

Currently, way we distribute ssh keys within QAM on our testing infrustructure is a bit cumbersome - maybe we should try to (ab)use existing salt used by our internal infra team.

File system block allocation algorithms comparison and analysis

a project by ganghe

In the past, some customers ever complained that OCFS2 file system performance went down when listing a big directory (e.g. include 400k files). According to my preliminary investigation, this performance problem is related to file system block allocation algorithm. Then, I want to look at the current mainstream file systems (e.g. EXT4, XFS, etc) block allocation algorithms in this hack week, compare and analysis these algorithms advantages/disadvantages.

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 ...

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.

Scripts and recipes for setting up VMs with multipath and other compex storage stacks

a project by mwilck

Customers are using complex storage stacks such as LVM over dm-crypt over MD RAID over multipath over iSCSI and FC with LOTs of LUNs, and we're facing problems in that area which are usually very hard to reproduce. It's also hard to guard against regressions. Being able to quickly and reliably set up VMs with various types of storage / multipath is a key part of testing multipath. It's doable, but cumbersome and has a steep learning curve. I want to create easy-to-understand manual recipes plus scripts that are both easy to understand / customize and deploy.

Setup E-Mail notification about new or changed SAP Notes
