an invention by nwmac

Extend Stratos ( by adding the ability to integrate open-source Analysis tools such as Popeye, Kube Score, Anchore, Clair etc, so that users can run these tools on their clusters from Stratos and view the results from Stratos. Allow results to be viewed contextually - so errors/warnings from an analysis will be shown on the appropriate view - e.g. the namespace view, pods view etc.

Ceph crushmap visualization

a project by qakapil

The CRUSH algorithm determines how to store and retrieve data by computing data storage locations. CRUSH empowers Ceph clients to communicate with OSDs directly rather than through a centralized server or broker. With an algorithmically determined method of storing and retrieving data, Ceph avoids a single point of failure, a performance bottleneck, and a physical limit to its scalability. CRUSH requires a map of your cluster, and uses the CRUSH map to pseudo-randomly store and retrieve data in OSDs with a uniform distribution of data across the cluster. This project aims at creating graphs of the crush map, for better visualization of the Ceph cluster.

multithreaded network benchmark

an invention by mkubecek

Project Description

There are multiple network benchmark tools already, most popular probably being netperf and iperf. Each of them has its pros and cons but the biggest drawback probably is that netperf runs only one connection (flow) and while iperf can use multiple connections, it still runs in a single thread. For benchmarking of contemporary fast networks like 40Gb/s or 100Gb/s ethernet, this can be a severe limitation as the performance is often CPU bound. Even on 10Gb/s ethernet, we are often unable to saturate the medium if tunneling or complex packet processing is involved.

80-bit floats support on x86_64 for Valgrind

a project by mfranc

Project Description

Valgrind currently lacks support for 80-bit extended precision floating point arithmetic on x86_64 (long double). The current implementation uses 64-bit arithmetic instead, which means that programs running on x86_64 with "long double" give different results when running under Valgrind and natively. People were asking for support for this since like forever, but to date nobody went on implementing it. It's a project for a year, unless somebody has time to work on it full time, but one has to start somewhere. :-)

Automate Haskell Packaging

an invention by psimons

We have various individual tools to automate parts of the Haskell packaging process, like cabal-rpm, but those tools aren't integrated into a fully automated system that keeps Haskell packages up-to-date with as little human intervention as possible. I would like to build that system. Stackage provides us with an accurate list of packages and versions that are known to work together well, and there are basically two flavors: the nightly snapshot (bleeding edge) and the LTS release (stable API). The former is appropriate for Tumbleweed, IMHO, and the latter is appropriate for stable releases like SLE or Leap. Now, we can use cabal-rpm to generate spec files automatically for all packages in a Stackage release and check them into OBS. The process does need some tweaking, however, because cabal-rpm generates spec files that don't always work well for SUSE. We could (a) branch cabal-rpm and add SUSE-specific know-how to remedy that issue or we could (b) maintain a set of patches that adapt the generated spec files to our needs. Once the Stackage releases are available in an OBS development project, we need another automated process that submits all updated packages to openSUSE:Factory, etc.

Local voice recognition for home automation

There are several popular ways of controlling home automation with voice today. Amazon Echo and Google Home both allow users to control lights, speakers, etc. with a simple voice command. For this project, I want to replicate some of the simple voice commands supported by projects like those, but in a way that does all processing from within the local network, and doesn't upload any voice clips to a server outside the home. There's something that feels a little uncomfortable about Amazon or Google having the ability to listen in on all conversations, so I'm trying to eliminate that while still being able to turn my lights on or off by voice.

Mike Latimer and Jim Fehlig will work on properly packaging libvirt TCK (it has a LOT of perl dependencies) and patching it to work better with SUSE virtualization hosts and SUSE guest operating systems. It has traditionally focused on the KVM hypervisor, so there might be some progress made to make it work better with Xen too.

openSUSE Infrastructure "Factory first"-like policy

a project by tampakrap

The SLE15 development model follows the Factory First policy, where all submissions need to go first to openSUSE:Factory and then to SLE15 repos. This way more bugs are fixed, less patches get lost, less backporting is happening etc. Our openSUSE infrastructure is using salt for configuration management. This was working fine, but suddenly we had to split the openSUSE from the SUSE-DMZ services into separate VLANs, thus the salt codebase had to be split as well. The code itself is mostly formulas and quite similar states between the two set of services though. The only real difference was in the pillars, and even there there was a lot of duplication.

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.

YaST2 code reorganization

a project by ancorgs

YaST code organization is a mess at many levels (files location, namespaces, code dependencies...). Recently we created this gist to put some of the issues on the table Many YaST developers will be at openSUSE Conference, that overlaps with Hackweek. The plan is to lock them all in a room with a blackboard and reach agreements on how the code should be organized in the future. Then use Hackweek to iron the details, document everything in some kind of style guide and, if time permits, even do some experiments about how to adapt the existing code to the new conventions.

Investigate using Terraform plus Salt as HA cluster test platform

a project by KGronlund

For testing Hawk, we're currently using a Vagrant configuration, and for testing HA releases we've been using a set of scripts originally authored by Antoine Ginies as a Hackweek project. My vague idea is to combine Terraform, Salt and a custom web frontend to make a tool that can be used by us as developers but also for others that want to try Hawk or play around with a cluster, for example for the UX team when testing modifications to the Hawk UI. I would base this on the work done by the SUSE Manager team:

Typo-forgiving zypper search plugin

a project by cdywan

Sometimes you search for a package, and you don't find it because you're not typing it right. Of course there's regex support behind the scenes but it requires conscious effort to make use of.

Create a kubectl plugin for Epinio

an invention by ecandino

Project Description

The Kubernetes CLI kubectl can be extended with plugins. While Epinio provides a CLI itself some of the operations are meant to be run from operators with direct access to the cluster. For example there is no way to create a user (a Kubernetes secret), assign a namespace to a user, create a "Epinio role" (coming soon) and assign it to a user.

Emulate MEN FPGAs in Qemu

an invention by morbidrsa

For testing some of the upstream Linux drivers we maintain it is necessary to emulate the hardware as we're getting bug reports for the upstream drivers but have no chance to test fixes. Once the upstream drivers can be emulated we could focus on emulating hardware where only downstream drivers do exist and then write new drivers to be upstreamed.
