kvmctx - a tool similar to xenctx, but for KVM

a project by bfrogers

I just learned about xenctx, which is used to help debug Xen issues. I am wondering if it would be easily ported to KVM. If not, perhaps at least creating the equivalent for KVM may be useful for handling problems with KVM guests.

Shell script merging for crash use on L3 Europe and NTS USA core dump servers

a project by dmair

Each of the core dump upload servers in Europe and USA could be improved if the shell scripts were combined so that the same tasks can be performed on each site, e.g. downloading of all packages needed for crash usage with a specified core dump by allowing for configurable (or even automated) selection of locations to obtain data packages from.

pxe boot once

an idea by osynge

pxe + autoyast is awesome but when multiple people share a pxe server is a pain. I understand foreman / chef provide a solution for this, but they are linked to puppet / chef. What I want is a simple modular tool to make life easy. pxe boot would allows you to send a simple http request and the next reboot of the server / VM will boot a non interactive fresh install.

Debconf Done Right For SUSE

an idea by osynge

Usecases

  • Puppet Chef and similar tools are for Admins to Enforce state, but this is too forceful for a distribution wanting to allow admins to override our settings.

GCC aggregate tracking

a project by jamborm

Currently GCC relies only on the most generic alias analysis when attempting to track data in aggregates in interprocedural (IPA) optimizations. In the course of this project I plan to revive patches for using simple escape analysis to track all data which do not have their address escaped and use that information to track constants within them, analyze the impact on a number of benchmarks and submit them to GCC trunk.

Kill YCP Zombies by Compiling Ruby to Ruby

a project by mvidner

During the YCP Killer project, Y2R didn't translate most YCP operators and builtins into equivalent Ruby constructs but into library calls. This was necessary to preserve behavior in various edge-case situations, mostly when nil was passed around. The resulting code is often long and hard to work with. Example from SlideShow.rb:
