HelenOS: <filesystem> of a down

a project by jjindrak

During the previous Hackweek [0], I have successfully implemented, tested and merged [1] an implementation of the entire C++ standard header <future>. This time, my aim is to modernize the C++14-esque standard library [2] of HelenOS [3][4] with a C++17 feature - the <filesystem> header. The <filesystem> header is much larger than the <future> header which I barely managed to implement and test in the allocated time for the previous Hackweek, but <future> was mostly OS-independent as it relied only on previously implemented features of the standard library. The <filesystem> header, however, is limited by the filesystem API of the OS and as such implementing of the entirety of it might not be possible, limiting the scope of the project (which is a good thing due to the time constraints). The primary features of the header [5] that should be implemented:

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: build Python APE and a Salt+Python bundle to support ANY client operating system

an idea by pagarcia

Uyuni/SUSE Manager build client tools for each of the supported operating systems: SLES 11, SLES 12, SLES 15, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, RHEL 8, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 9, Debian 10... the list is long. This is required because each operating system has different base libraries (glibc, OpenSSL, Python version, etc). A few months ago, the SUSE Manager development team started a (yet unfinished) research task to try to build Salt and all the required dependencies (minus glibc and OpenSSL, because it would break FIPS certification) so that we can always ship the latest version of Salt on each client operating system:

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].

Zero Trust vSphere Provisioning from Rancher

an idea by wjimenez

Currently, when Rancher tries to provision a Kubernetes cluster on vSphere, it needs to initiate API calls to the vSphere endpoint. In a hybrid cloud environment this often means that the Rancher server is not in the same network as the vSphere endpoint. Therefore inbound access is required to be added to a firewall so Rancher can reach the vSphere system. This naturally poses a security concern and creates administrative burden on our users who have to go through a security review to get this approved. If instead of requiring direct API access, an agent could exist inside the network where the vSphere API lived, then this agent could broker the communication between the Rancher server and the downstream API. The agent would simply initiate an outbound API connection to the Rancher server (much like any node agent or cluster agent currently) and simultaneously proxy any API calls that Rancher needs to make to vSphere. This would also have the benefit of being able to be run through a HTTP proxy, which many security teams will appreciate as a less risky connectivity model.

Migrate suntorytimed/resourcespace container to an openSUSE base

a project by suntorytimed

Project Description

For quite some time I am providing a ResourceSpace container on Docker Hub. It is meanwhile pulled about 234K times but unfortunately still based on Ubuntu. Meanwhile I have updated the base to Ubuntu 20.04, but I would like to move it to openSUSE instead. With ResourceSpace 9.5 coming out soon I see a possibility of introducing this switch. Enno Gotthold also did a great job of packaging ResourceSpace on OBS, so this could be used as a starting point for the container.

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.

Automated test for game + only web based dev + Python openQA

an invention by okurz


Test automation can be fun and openQA is good at it but it has limitations. This project is meant to find out where the limits are for applications with lots of things moving on the screen, e.g. a game. Completely unrelated, web based tools become the norm for many users, e.g. when working from a chromebook or similar environments. The idea here is to try to use only web based tools and not force users to use a terminal which can be frightening :) As a third requirement: Some people are not feeling comfortable using openQA "because tests are written in Perl". This is not necessarily true because tests are rather written using a simplistic test API and only a small subset of Perl knowledge is necessary, however, we still want to support other entry points so there is Python support added in . To find out what this new way is capable of this project should use only that Python support and find out any restrictions.

DRM driver for USB-based SiS graphics cards

a project by tdz

Back in the late 90s to early 2000s, SiS graphics chips were fairly common and found in many low-end devices. Today, the chips are still capable enough for simple graphics needs, but the graphics cards were on PCI and AGP buses. They are not usable in modern computers. However, there exist USB-based graphics cards with a SiS 315 graphics chip. Those are around on Ebay et al [1] and easily usable with current computers. I already do have a driver for the old PCI-based SiS drivers and have long been struggling to find something useful to do with it. Converting it to serve USB devices would finally make it useful.

Performance profile and possibly improve Jitsi web client

an invention by mkoutny

Project Description

I run openSUSE TW and FF with i7-5600U Intel CPU. Calls with ~4 (video) participants work but my CPU load is approaching number of cores. In slightly bigger calls (>=6 participants) the CPU load was insufficient and audio packets were being dropped. I'd like learn more about webrtc video streams in order to reduce the client's CPU work or make it more adaptive when running with limited resources.

Get to know SMP on x86 systems better

an idea by alix82

Project Description

In order to learn how operating systems work on a x86 chip, I had written (long ago) a toy OS based on code found on osdev wiki [1]. It allowed me to understand the interaction between the OS and the x86 hardware, and to some extent how the OS handles userspace (I used newlib for some userspace programs). The single-processor OS code later served me well as a base for a course about operating systems I taught at the university.
