Try another OS (or distro)

a project by bear454

Feeling very comfortable with your (open)SUSE desktop? Don't get too comfortable; there's a lot of innovation out there. Try living in a different system for a few days, and see if you can find some innovative paradigms to bring back 'home' with you. Here's a few suggestions: * Feeling really crazy? Try Windows 8

pyg: PEG parsing runtime for Python

a project by rneuhauser

pyg will be a PEG parser library formed as an internal Python DSL. it will be used in cramex, a copycat of cram with expect support. The surface is heading to resemble Boost.Spirit: grammars are composed using a vaguely (xBNF/PEG)-like syntax enabled through operator overloading.

a project by llipavsky

QADB is the database used to strore results of automated tests in SUSE QA. It only has web intrface, which is mostly just a better DB view. The goal of this project is to create the REST API to it, which can later be used to query for results from external tools (and maybe even later used by the frontend)

Podcast Studio

a project by KGronlund

I've been running a podcast together with two friends for over a year now. We have a recording and mixing process going, but unfortunately it involves using non-free operating systems and software all the way through. It is probably going to be hard to get away from using the things we use for the actual recording part for a while, but one thing I feel should be perfectly doable in openSUSE is the mastering bit. In theory, Audacity could work for this, but it is old and clunky and doesn't do real-time filtering, making it annoying to use.

libvirt TCK

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt TCK provides a framework for performing testing of the integration between libvirt drivers, the underlying virt hypervisor technology, related operating system services and system configuration. The idea (and name) is motivated by the Java TCK. Currently the libvirt TCK is not fully packaged for SUSE and the test suite itself contains a lot of Redhat-isms. Mike Latimer and Jim Fehlig will work on properly packaging libvirt TCK (it has a LOT of perl dependencies) and patching it to work better with SUSE virtualization hosts and SUSE guest operating systems. It has traditionally focused on the KVM hypervisor, so there might be some progress made to make it work better with Xen too.

Kernel oops decoder

a project by benjamin_poirier

Read in a crash or oops-style backtrace and access DWARF information to output the current content of the stack and registers in term of symbols, and the the crash commands to dump/pretty print them. In other words, when looking at a crash dump, answer the questions "Which variable is currently stored in $rax? What is the structure of the stack? Which variable is stored at $rsp+16?"

Support for the SMBus ARP protocol

a project by jdelvare

The SMBus standard specifies an address resolution protocol (SMBus ARP.) It has two key features : * Handle I2C slave address collisions. If two SMBus slaves would use the same I2C address, ARP lets one of them pick a different address to avoid the address collision.

openQA framework studying and improvement.

an idea by bchou

openQA is a set of utilities designed to test operative systems in an fully automated way. I would like to get started from the Tutorial and get familiar the whole process (openQA of webUI, auto-inst test modules, specific cases writing ) and detail framework. It would be accelerating the test cases creation in the future.

Enable python in crash and use it for most functions

an idea by jeff_mahoney

Crash originated in a older version of gdb. Since then, gdb has added python to its scripting options. By converting much of the crash functionality to python, we can make it easier to extend existing functionality and allow our customers to do the same.

Optimize packing of objects required for migration to new container

a project by vuntz

Moving objects to a new container is a problem everyone in R&D has faced at least once in his life. It requires a very advanced algorithm to pack the many different objects (which are generally heterogeneous, with different uses, types, weights and sizes), before the packs can then be transferred to the new container, generally through a dedicated bus. We can identify some usual cases: * In the worst case, the new container can be smaller than the old one, and a garbage collector is generally used to help find a solution that satisfies the problem (a SAT solver can be used to determine which objects should be destroyed).

SUSE Manager/Spacewalk client debug/test shell

an idea by dmacvicar

When developing for SUSE Manager, it gets tiresome to setup clients in order to debug and test with clients. The idea is to create a nice shell (with history, command completion, colors) that allows to simulate being a client.
