SSH Tunnel YaST Plugin

a project by gary_smith

Learn about developing a YaST plugin by creating a plugin to manage SSH Tunnels. Creating SSH port tunnels along with corresponding iptables rules is a useful technique for being able to access virtual machines on a remote host that only visible on a private network. Managing and maintaining these connections via scripts and tmux sesssions is less desirable than doing it through a nice UI like YaST. Note that the CLI tool https://www.npmjs.com/package/ssh-tunnel-manager has some nice ideas for managing groups and profiles that may be useful.

Create a tool to generate vCPU/vNUMA topology for virtual machines

a project by jfehlig

Most large workloads such as SAP HANA require special, highly optimized configuration to run in a virtual machine. Virtual resources such as memory and CPU must be carefully configured to ensure optimum performance of the virtual machine workload. Default VM configuration created by tools such as virt-install are not optimized and often result in poor performance of large workloads due to memory access latencies and incorrect/incomplete information available to the VM's task scheduler. Currently, users deploying large workloads must manually optimize virtual CPU and memory resources, which can be error-prone and if not done properly can actually degrade performance. This project aims to create a tool that can produce suggested vCPU and vNUMA configuration based on a VM configuration template and capabilities of the target virtual machine host. E.g. something along the lines of

xdg-utils python rewrite

a project by simotek

The plan is to start working towards a rewrite of xdg-utils in python, focusing on the really bad bits such as dealing with desktop files and mime handling. In this hackweek, I want to split python-xdg into multiple libraries such as python-mime and python-desktop file and prepare them to be used in helper binaries to handle some of the more complex tasks currently done in shell.

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders

a project by rtsvetkov

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders The analysis and selection of requirements are important parts of any release planning process. Most practices focuse on release planning based on plan-driven optimization models. Nevertheless, solving the release planning problem mechanistically is difficult in an agile development context with multiple stakeholders.

Bring Linux memory scanner scanmem/GameConqueror to openSUSE

an invention by sparschauer

All other distributions have scanmem/gameconqueror packages. scanmem is a command line memory scanner to locate variables in memory and GameConqueror is the Python/GTK3 front-end for it which also provides game trainer features. But it is not only a game cheating tool. It can also help testing applications, debugging memory issues, watching variables in memory or it can be used for reverse-engineering. Hackers also use it for things like ping spoofing. As the upstream maintainer of this tool I'd like to bring it to openSUSE and maintain it there.
