Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

crash-python

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

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.

Make Ruqola Rocket.Chat client useable / submit to openSUSE Tumbleweed

an invention by zbenjamin

Update: Ruqola ('zypper in ruqola') is now in Tumbleweed and Leap 15.2! For Hack Week 19 (Feb 2020) main goal is to test, polish packaging, potentially do fixes and select a snapshot to submit to openSUSE Tumbleweed. Upstream made one release but it was not optimal, development pace has sped up a lot lately and the client has become more stable and usable.

Improve openSUSE infrastructure

a project by lrupp

There is always something to do if you run the infrastructure for such a big project like openSUSE.... Our Admin wiki currently lists over 80 machines - and while we already "salted" some of them, there is always room for improvement and room to learn something new just by making your hands dirty and diving into the administrator role for a machine.

grab this: openSUSE beta test program and web application

a project by lnussel

openSUSE Leap 42.3 goes for a rolling release model with automated openQA tests. That covers only so much though. We need manual testing too. In previous releases a google document spread sheet was used to coordinate and track the efforts.That's probably not the best method anymore. Come up with ideas and a prototype of how manual testing could be guided, tracked, visualized for a rolling development distribution with volunteers testing.

openSUSE/SLE/Mainline U-boot for some not-yet-supported ARM64 boards

an idea by ldevulder

The Khadas VIM (http://khadas.com/vim/) is an arm64 DIY Set-Top-Box based on Amlogic P212 reference board that use S905X SoC. As Odroid-C2 (based on S905 SoC) is in the mainline U-boot, it should be possible to adapt it for the Khadas VIM (of course a lot of work are needed!).

Investigate options to introduce Plugins to SUSE Manager

a project by cbosdonnat

For years we have been discussing the idea to modularize SUSE Manager. This would enable developers to create their own extensions to SUSE Manager without needing to touch the core repository. There are several frameworks that could be helping in that direction. The goal here is to create a Proof of Concept with the virtualization features moved into an add-on.

Implement GNOME Software's Distribution Upgrade in Leap(and possibly Tumbleweed)

GNOME Software supports distribution upgrade, that only requires a few clicks for upgrading your system. But it's not integrated into Leap. So this is that I plan to do this Hack Week.
