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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.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.
