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].

Btrfs OSD for Lustre

an idea by jeff_mahoney

Modern Lustre supports compelling features like snapshots but it requires OSDs to use ZFS in order to implement it. Since ZFS and Linux licensing is incompatible, it's not really a supportable solution. This project has an aim to implement Lustre OSDs using Btrfs underneath them, leveraging the btrfs feature set to enable the features that ZFS-based OSDs provide now in a supportable way.

Focus Friendly Desktop Adaptations

a project by wstephenson

Background

Given the number of different demands on our time and attention, it becomes increasing hard to focus and find the 'flow state' where a developer can be most productive. Interruptions due to chat notifications, email, and updater applets all break focus. Additionally, the desktop metaphor has in most cases failed to evolve as the browser and other MDI interfaces have become the focus for many users, and increased performance has allowed us to keep more tasks running and present on the desktop at once, presenting a higher cognitive load to the user.

dmidecode: no more open-coded printfs

a project by jdelvare

There's a long standing request to extend the output of dmidecode to something that would be machine-readable. Something like an XML or JSON-based format. Unfortunately this can't be implemented right now because the output of dmidecode is generated by open-coded printfs as the DMI table is being parsed, with no intermediate structures nor temporary buffers. While implementing a machine-parseable output is out of scope for a single hack week, let's remember that even the longest journey starts with a single footstep. I would like to try and rewrite the 5200 lines of code of dmidecode in such a way that printing the output would be somewhat separated from parsing the DMI table and done by a limited set of dedicated functions. Alternative output formats could later hook into such functions.

"Physical" notifications with Raspberry Pi and addressable LEDs

a project by dannysauer

I'd like a way to have a device on my desk which lights up to indicate that I have something I should be paying attention to. Initially, I'd like this to be for Office365 calendar events and GitHub mentions, but ideally it should support arbitrary messages. The plan is to assign specific colors (ideally "patterns" consisting of a sequence of colors and time) to specific message types. I have a handful of raspberry Pi Zeroes, a couple of OLEDs, a strand of individually-addressable RGB LEDs, a power supply, and some misc electronics (like the 3.3-5v logic level shifter necessary for the 5v LED strand). I'm thinking Python is probably the way to go for the software. I'm hoping OpenSUSE actually works on the Pi zero. :D If not, there's an ESP32 with a built-in display and a few Pi 3s laying around barely used, maybe one of them will work.

Bluetooth audio

a project by mwilck

I'm hearing impaired. Where others have no issues following talks or dicussions, I often fail even grasp the bottom line what it's about. I've got hearing aids, but they help only so much. I also have an add-on device for my hearing aids that acts like a bluetooth headset. Unfortunately, making this thing work under my Linux desktop has been an ongoing, frustrating struggle. On the contrary, it works flawlessly with Android devices of different generations, and even with my lowly Gigaset phone. Actually, the thing works better with older kernels/Linux versions than with current TW. While I've little hope to solve the bluetooth audio issues on Linux for good, I hope at least to be able to understand better what's going wrong, and be able to slow down or even stop the deterioration I've observed lately.
