Brand new UI for deploying OpenStack in Crowbar

an idea by vuntz

Right now, Crowbar exposes a barclamp UI for each OpenStack component. This is not really optimal, imho. I think a better approach would be to have a single barclamp UI where we can configure everything, before deploying OpenStack.

virtio-serial in OpenStack

a project by e_bischoff

Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP. I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.

A programming language exploration

a project by KGronlund

I would like to have a programming language that has the performance characteristics of C, but integrates some programming language features that I like from other languages. My first goal would be to start with a language that is very limited in scope and compiles directly to C, and step by step add to it. There are a lot of programming languages, but very few that handles memory as an explicit resource. To be able to explicitly manage memory is a very powerful technique and essential for applications such as high performance video games.

Integrate e1000e into the Linux Kernel Backports project

a project by benjamin_poirier

The current approach to having new hardware support and features in SLE kernels it to integrate changes to individual drivers from the mainline kernel back into the SLE kernel. The Linux Kernel Backports project ( in comparison has an approach which consists in adding a shim layer between unmodified mainline drivers and older kernel interfaces. This project has its roots in wireless drivers. It currently supports only a handful of old ethernet adapters. The goal of this hackweek project is to integrate support for the Intel 1Gb pci-express ethernet driver e1000e into the Backports project. This particular driver was chosen because it is widely used and modern while not being exotic.

Rewrite orchestration layer of Crowbar

an idea by vuntz

The current orchestration layer of Crowbar is unfortunately way too simple and needs some serious rework if we want to take Crowbar to the next step. We need some granularity that is more fine-grained (not just something that is per-barclamp, and inside that that is per-role), with a queue that is better designed.
