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one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.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

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

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

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.

Investigate options to introduce Plugins to SUSE Manager

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.

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.

Rewrite transactional-update in C++

a project by fos

transactional-update, the application to update read-only systems such as openSUSE MicroOS and openSUSE Kubic and the Transactional Server installations of openSUSE Leap, openSUSE Tumbleweed and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, evolved from a POC to a fully fledged solution - and is currently completely written in Bash. This has been working really well in the past, but is gradually reaching its limits, especially when thinking about supporting additional file systems or ports to other Linux distributions - yes, we have a huge interest in other distributions adopting our technology. A C++ version would simplify those abstractions, but would it also make maintenance of the complete application easier? Check that as part of a POC and refresh C++ knowledge on the way there.

netlink interface for ethtool

a project by mkubecek

There seems to be an overall consensus that the ioctl interface used by ethtool is a poor design as it's inflexible, error prone and notoriously hard to extend. It should clearly be replaced by netlink and obsoleted. Unfortunately not much actual work has been done in that direction until this project started. The project started in Hackweek 16 (fall 2017) and has been worked on since, both in Hackweek 17-19 and outside. First two parts of kernel implementation are in mainline since 5.6-rc1, first part of userspace implementation (ethtool utility) has been submitted to upstream at the end of Hackweek 19 (2020-02-16).

Learn Crystal by porting part of YaST to that language

an invention by ancorgs

For a very long time, I have been planning to play with Crystal as possible substitute/complement for Ruby. With that goal, I have isolated a very small subset of the Ruby project I know the best (yast-storage-ng) and I want to migrate that subset to Crystal to get a general feeling about the language. See the repository with the experiment already in progress. There is no evil plan to migrate YaST to Crystal. This is just done in the Hack Week spirit of "what if". But if more people join maybe we could get this to an state in which some benchmarks can be executed to check what's the real gain in speed and memory consumption using Crystal instead of Ruby (note: speed and memory are not the only goals of the migration).

This hack week project is an Unity3D app, available in Android, IOS and HTML5 platforms. The idea is to welcome new joiners inviting them to play this game. The game will have questions about SUSE, the new joiners will need to ask other SUSE employees for the correct answer, socializing and learning SUSE culture at the same time. When they win the game an e-mail will be sent to a concrete e-mail address (it might be someone from facilities) and they will receive a small gift as Welcome Pack. For instance, they could receive the small chameleon or a t-shirt.
