SeaMonkey extension (for forgetting passwords)

a project by pcerny

SeaMonkey is the successor of the Mozilla Suite. The mail client allows connections over POPv3 and IMAPv4. In some cases one wants to leave the program running for longer periods of time, but once the mail client has password for a mail server it just stays connected. In case of "keep everything on server" profiles this means that the mail may stay accessible even when the machine is left unattended (which it often is). The purpose of the extension is to enable requesting the client to forget mail server passwords, so that the mail is no longer accessible without entering it again.

experiments with Pebble smartwatch, including writing a SUSECon application for it

a project by fcrozat

Pebble smartwatch is a nice gadget I own and I'd like to start playing with it at the code level. One goal would be to create a SUSECon / conference application for it, allowing to choose which talks I will attend and make sure the watch will notify me in advance a session will begin.

The official DAPS release is 1.1.7. SUSE internally DAPS 2.0 rc2 has been released. A few issues need to be fixed (mainly closing open bugs and adding missing test cases).

bug screening helper

Packages for vagrant

an idea by tboerger

To really start with vagrant within the company and our company it would be awesome to create real SUSE packages for vagrant and some other cool and important plugins. It's not that easy like it sounds because vagrant runs within the upstream rpm in an embedded ruby container that needs to be fixed for our system packages.

Improve ftpboot for z/VM

Installing linux on z/VM requires some way to punch kernel/initrd/parmfile into the reader which in turn can be booted.

Git like subcommand support for zypper

an idea by mlandres

Add subcommand support for zypper. That is, if 'zypper foo' is not found, look for %{_libexec}/zypper/zypper-foo just like git does. Then those subcommands could be binaries linked to libzypp or just scripts.

Teach zypp to query/download/mirror multiarch repos

an idea by mlandres

Zypp offers only those items within a repository, which are 'installable', i.e. 'compatible' with the systems architecture. But there are several use cases, up to mirroring a whole repository, where people would like to query, resolve and download items of foreign architecture without actually installing them. Offering those items in libzypp should be quite easy, but we must also make sure nothing 'stupid' happens if zypper also sees uninstallable items in the pool.

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.
