Play with CoreOS

a project by wanghaisu

CoreOS is a new Linux distribution that has been rearchitected to provide features needed to run modern infrastructure stacks. CoreOS is popular on most cloud providers (EC2, Rackspace, GCE), virtualization platforms (Vagrant, VMware, OpenStack, QEMU/KVM) and bare metal servers (PXE, iPXE, ISO, Installer). Play with CoreOS during hackweek and see how and why it works well for HA.

Look at using the boost graph library as main container for devices in libstorage

a project by aschnell

Storing the devices in libstorage as a graph looks like a natural approach. The boost graph library (BGL) could be used here instead of the selfmade iterator over iterator (not a graph) concept currently used. Together with a redesign of the current objects several features would be simple, e.g. using disks for filesystems, renaming LVM volume groups and logical volumes, switching to and from partitioned MD RAID.

detect and visualise git commits' patch-based dependencies

a project by aspiers

It is well-known that two git commits within a single repo can be independent from each other, by changing separate files to each other, or changing separate parts of the same file(s). Conversely when a commit changes a line, it is "dependent" on not only the commit which last changed that line, but also any commits which were responsible for providing the surrounding lines of context, because without those previous versions of the line and its context, the commit's diff would not cleanly apply. As with most dependency relationships, these form a directed acyclic graph. Sometimes it is useful to understand the nature of parts of this graph; for example when porting a commit "A" between git branches via git cherry-pick, it can be useful to programmatically determine in advance the minimum number of other dependent commits which would also need to be cherry-picked to provide the context for commit "A" to cleanly apply.

Rebirth Guile-Lua

a project by NalaGinrut

GNU Guile-2.2 will be based on brand new backend, CPS(continuation passing style) as the most significant IR, and a RegisterVM. These are the prerequisite for the final AOT compiler. The old Guile-Lua is old for compatible with the brand new RegisterVM, moreover, it uses LL(1) which is painful for hacking. I've rewritten the parser with LALR and all the intermediate part before transfer it to Tree-IL which is another iR before CPS. Besides, I'm trying to add type-inferencing and partial-evaluation for Lua specific optimizing. Although there's partial-evaluator in Guile backend, it's a generic one for all the front-end languages.

Build a sharable local virtualization testing environment

a project by cyliu

Currently whenever there is a test, we need to find or build environment on our own machine or borrow some one else's machine temparorily. I hope we can collect all testing machines in our local team and build a sharable testing environment. Every one can reserve and use the machine, add machine, check machine info to find proper one (hardware and software) for test, share vm images, share other testing related resources, etc.

Warp speed for virtualization CI testing

a project by jfehlig

The virtualization team's automated testing has a long history. It was born in the old Novell Integration Test framework. The virtualization lab ran an instance of this framework for many years. Over time, those who knew the framework left the company, taking their knowledge and leaving little documentation behind. As our testing needs increased, we found the old framework insufficient, but saw little value in improving it given the available open source CI frameworks. Before burying ourselves in SLE12 development, we took some time to move our automated tests under control of a Jenkins instance running in our lab. Tests were configured to run when new packages landed in our SLE12 devel project, ensuring our queued SLE12 submissions were continuously tested. But more is needed.

kvmctx - a tool similar to xenctx, but for KVM

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.
