Docker: Image Rebasing

an invention by cyphar

git rebase is a very useful construct in source control management, as it allows you to re-apply your changes atop a different branch of the same repository. While this concept transitions perfectly to container management (updating a container could be as easy as a docker rebase), and the Docker client is inspired by the git semantics, Docker has no such feature (in fact, Solomon Hykes used rebase and merge as examples of things "that we don't want"). Currently, zypper-docker works by applying an updated layer on top of an existing image. While this does work quite well, it separates the process of updating the base image and updating all of your derivative images (you need to re-download new packages for each derivative image). So, this project will be working on implementing something like git rebase for Docker images. There are several issues with this, mainly involving the fact that we are rebasing binaries and not source code, so merge conflicts will probably be quite messy. But it should be possible to implement some form of simple rebase method (which will essentially fall back to docker build in the worst case, which is what you were going to run anyway). By maximising the reuse of the existing image layers, it should be possible to reduce build times quite significantly.

KDE bugzilla cleanup

Rewrite maintenance's dependency checkers in Python

an invention by leonardocf

We currently have a set of shell scripts that verify if patches can be properly installed on multiple combinations of base products, extensions and modules. These scripts are all written in shell and are annoying to maintain, as configuration and code is all mixed up. My objectives are: (a) to rewrite all the scripts in a single tool, in Python; (b) separate code and configuration, so that adding a new product/SP requires only editing a configuration file; and (c) make the checkers more flexible, allowing execution from the command line against specific repositories (use case: checking one single maintenance incident before submitting it to QAM).

Use Relax-and-Recover (rear) as generic installer in the plain SUSE installation system

an invention by jsmeix

The basic idea is is to boot the plain SUSE installation system (inst-sys) but to not let it run YaST. Instead inst-sys runs Relax-and-Recover (rear) as generic installer that does the system installation.

Use jenkins as openQA UI

an invention by okurz

motivation

jenkins is a great CI system (continuous integration) with a plethora of plugins available. SUSE QA uses openQA extensively as it excels in distribution and product testing - not only image comparison (common misconception ;-) ). How about combining both in using jenkins with plugins to act as a UI for openQA?

emulate firewalld interfaces for NM on SuSEfirewall2

an invention by lnussel

Networkmanager uses some simple dbus interfaces of firewalld to allow configuring a firewall zone for connections. FWZS offers similar features on top of SuSEfirewall2. I'd like to adjust fwzsd to provide the minimal interfacess NM needs to offer the firewall integration.

Add PIDs cgroup support to runC and Docker

an invention by cyphar

Currently, dealing with forkbombs and similar issues with Docker and runC is not very nice (you have to set a global limit for all Docker processes or you have to limit kernel memory which isn't very practical). I'm going to work on getting some [patches][2] merged into runC and Docker to enable PIDs support for Docker.
