Make ruby-ui usable for YaST

an idea by dmacvicar

ruby-ui was a hackweek project with jreidinger to make libyui (YaST text/graphical engine) usable from pure-ruby without going through YCP. We experimented a bit extreme trying to make the usage of SLIM templates possible. It kind of worked.

Revive qemacs

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:

Internal SUSE webzine

a project by cyberiad

The idea is to have an internal web page that mainly presents new SUSE employees or the ones you might not know yet. Other topics can be covered like reports about hack week projects or other interesting stuff apart from the daily work we all do. As a start there would be a questionnaire which results are posted on a web page.

Dice - A light weight build service

a project by sax2

The idea is simple. Dice is a light weight build service for KIWI images with full control over the build power by the user. At SUSE we have the buildservice which is the full professional version of a build service for packages, images and also products. As a normal user I can provide input and I get some output but I have no control what happens with my data, when it's being processed and where it's being processed. That's by design and works great, thus not meant negatively. I'm a 100% fan of the buildservice

Moses machine translation performance tuning

a project by marxin

Moses is a statistical machine translation system that allows you to automatically train translation models for any language pair. Intention of the project is to tune up existing software, where a glimpse shows that majority of time is consumed by memory allocation, dynamic casting and other calculation non-related stuff. I would like to inspect many techniques (like perf profiling, GCC LTO, GCC profile-guided optimization, code refactoring, OpenTuner, etc.) which may bring really significant performance gain. Moreover, it would be really beneficial to come up with a cookbook that can be used by folk in general. If possible, I would like to create a step-by-step performance improvement graphs.

Tweak btrfs to run on SMR drives

a project by hreinecke

Having gotten access to some SMR prototypes it should be possible to tweak btrfs to run natively on those devices. Using SSD mode helps a lot, but there is still some work to be done. So this will be a good chance to learn something about the inner details of btrfs and see if I can get it to run on SMR drives.
