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.

Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

Multi-cloud Lightweight metadata CLI

a project by seanmarlow

Project Description

The goal of this project is to create a lightweight multi-cloud metadata CLI for Public Cloud environments. There are cloud specific packages that exist but they all have different API and many are developed in Python which is quite heavy for cloud images, especially containers. Leveraging a compiled language will help with keeping the CLI lightweight.

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.
