Teach SUMA to sign repository metadata

an invention by mcalmer

Signing metadata requires a lot of manual interaction and knowledge of the customer. This was the reason why we never implemented it for SUMA as the benefit was very low. Now with the change in the zypp stack to not allow installing unsigned RPMs without user interaction or completly disabling GPG checks the benefit of such a feature increased.

osc diff should support customized difftools, e.g. vimdiff

a project by zhangxiaofei

Utilities like git and quilt support customized difftools in some ways. It's would be great if this is introduced to osc for commands like diff, pdiff, prdiff, rdiff, rq --diff, sr --diff.

Ideas about local community involvement

a project by vsvecova

The plan is to gather ideas about how SUSE can become a more integral part of the local tech community scene (in PRG, NUE, or other locations). As a person who has been involved in educating women about tech for some time, I am thinking of introductory workshops and meetups, aimed not necessarily only at female audience.

(Functional) Reactive Programming (Web) programming

a project by bergmannf

I want to use this Hackweek to explore (Functional) Reactive Programming to be able to use it in my day-to-day work. This includes checking out basic literature about (F)RP as well as domain modelling to get a better understanding, when this paradigm makes sense to use, as well as looking into concrete implementation of (F)RP libraries.

Run sandboxed Firefox with image and sound inside a container

an invention by nguyens

Project Description

Running a web browser from your PC can cause all sorts of security or anonymity issues; e-g: content downloaded could be run automatically from your PC, resulting in disk encryption or other unpleasant events. It would be great if we could run most of this in a container so that we have as much of the web browser sandboxed, and limit the PC's exposure to security events.

Generic retry command in openSUSE

an invention by okurz


When automating tasks often the requirement comes up to retry commands, for example when network connections are involved and commands do not return successfully immediately or if resources are temporarily not available. Sometimes a simple for-loop in bash is sufficient. Sometimes it is necessary to use additional waiting between retries, sometimes timeouts are desired. Getting all those combinations right can be tedious and error-prone so a generic "retry" command should be available in usual environments so we should provide a retry command to openSUSE distributions.

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

Improve performance of JRuby's hash implementation

an invention by cbruckmayer


JRuby is an implementation of Ruby on the JVM. It aims to be a complete, correct and fast implementation of Ruby, at the same time as providing powerful new features such as concurrency without a global-interpreter-lock, true parallelism, and tight integration to the Java language to allow you to use Java classes in your Ruby program and to allow JRuby to be embedded into a Java application.

Out-of-the-box SPD support

an invention by jdelvare

In order to see the SPD (detailed memory information) data, the user currently has to manually load the needed kernel driver. Which driver to load depends on the memory type. Depending on the driver user, the devices may even have to be instantiated manually and this is a non-trivial multi-step task. Plus you need to be root to do it. I would like to attempt to automatize all this at least in the most common and simple cases like Intel x86 desktop. The idea would be to figure out the memory type and the I2C address of the SPD EEPROMs based on DMI data. If the DMI data is of good quality then it should be possible to automatically figure out which driver to use and to instantiate the devices at boot time.
