Test openQA in openQA with openQA using openQA for openQA

a project by RBrownSUSE

Occasionally, new versions of openQA break things. How do you stop that? MORE TESTING! Testing openQA by using openQA to ensure the new versions don't break should be a good example of how openQA can test everything and anything, even itself.

LaTeX binary numbering

an idea by bmwiedemann

LaTeX can already do (arabic) decimal and roman numbering for sections/chapters/pages/enums etc, but for proper geekiness of one's papers/presentations, it should be able to do it in binary digits. This mini-hackweek project is about finding out and documenting how to do that in the easiest way.

Learn Salt by converting ansible scripts to salt states.

a project by kbaikov

I would like to learn Salt by converting ansible scripts to salt states. Current ansible scripts do some QA tasks on cloud nodes, so i thought it would be a good idea to convert them to salt after reading salt tutorial.

openQA webVTT subtitles

a project by bmwiedemann

The webVTT standard (nearly the same as the older SRT subtitles) allows to add subtitles to a video. We could use this in openQA to show which keys were pressed at that point in the video, in which line of code we were or on what event we waited. This could make debugging easier and might be instructive to users, too.

mount option helper for VFAT and other file systems

a project by sbrabec

While auto-mounting a VFAT volume in a desktop environment, there is no way to select required mount options for the particular volume. But there is no combination of options that will fit to all purposes. Without being able to choose mount options, some tasks work in an inferior way.

write mkcloudcloud - a nested cloud setup software

a project by bmwiedemann

In we already have mkcloud, which can setup a whole SUSE Cloud on a single host for testing. However, it would be cool, if (instead of a single machine) we could use with its capability to add extra networks as requested. This can be pretty easy, as much of the mkcloud code is about making libvirt do the right thing

Improve posixovl to support fully featured POSIX file system on top of any limited file system (e. g. vfat)

a project by sbrabec

posixovl is a FUSE based successor of the old UMSDOS. It has a goal to provide POSIX file system functionality on top of vfat. Its code is nice and well written, but its feature set is not complete yet. It just supports: POSIX modes and user/group, hard and symbolic links, device nodes and named pipes. Much more can be done:

[ARM] Ceph on AArch64

an idea by algraf

Octopuses have many ARMs, so we should definitely allow them to run on them too! Today, we don't have working Ceph packages for AArch64, but already solid interest from customers asking us about it. It would be great to be able to give them something to play with.

Write a fault tolerant disk copy tool with file system specific plugins

an idea by j_gross

When my laptop disk started to show read errors I searched for a tool capable to save the contents of the disk (multiple systems on it with different file system types). I couldn't find anything which would do a copy of the disk skipping unused areas and tolerating I/O-errors, so I ended up in re-installing all systems after I got a new disk. The ideal solution would be some clever combination of dd_rescue and tar which could be put on a live-CD like gparted and be able to save the disk in question. To save a 500GB disk with 200GB data on it the tool should require only some 200GB of empty disk space, not the full 500GB of the physical disk to be saved.

Package VSFTPD with Chroot based on Group Membership

an idea by HaxxonHAx

Although SFTP is the preferred choice for non-public text-based file transfers, some agencies still use FTP. ProFTPD and VSFTPD are among the two top brands of FTP that include a Chrooting system. ProFTPD focuses more on public FTP, such that you can chroot based on a simple path (a la any anonymous FTP). VSFTPD gives the flexibility of chrooting each user into a jail based on the user's home directory. The chrooting system is based on a file in which one specifies the users that you want to chroot. Maintaining this file is key to the chroot system included with VSFTPD. This becomes a problem if one has over 1000 users that need to be maintained (added,removed,changed). This project will provide a chroot system based on a group membership, in which you specify the group that you want chrooted, and when you want a user chrooted, you can easily put them into the group. NOTE: VSFTPD ( has not been maintained since 2012. I've attempted to contact the currently listed developers for taking over and maintaining the project, but have yet to hear a response.

LVM support for Guix System Distribution

With GNU Guix 0.8.1 and it's distribution there is still lack of LVM support. As I'm probably the only user of LVM, I need to hack support into initrd myself.

Porting SHA1 codes to EFI stub environment

a project by joeyli

For Hibernate Signature Verification - HMAC version, I need a hash algorithm in EFI stub environment before ExitBootServices() to mix / mess random seed from different sources (rdtsc, rdrand...) for generating the HMAC key to sign the hibernate image in runtime environment. There have no any hash functions provides by EFI services, so need implement it in EFI stub. I choice SHA1 to be the target algorithm because currently I choice HMAC-SHA1 to be the algorithm to generate signature of hibernate image.

Protect disk devices from concurrent use in the libvirt libxl hypervisor driver

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt qemu hypervisor driver has long supported protecting disk devices from concurrent use via libvirt's lock manager interface. Xen used to support the same functionality in the old xend toolstack, but dropped support in the new libxl toolstack. The Xen community decided, rightly so, that this functionality is best provided by a higher-level management tool, e.g. libvirt. This project aims to provide integration between libvirt's lock manager and the libxl hypervisor driver, essentially reintroducing support for disk device protection in the Xen management stack.
