Management solution for openSUSE based on Salt-stack

an idea by dmacvicar

Saltstack is the only configuration management solution that does not look like a ball of hair. https://github.com/dmacvicar/playground/tree/minimanager-reactjs/python/minimanager is a prototype of a Spacewalk-like console using Spacewalk as the server and client engine.

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

a project by dmacvicar

qemacs is a nice emacs style editor by Fabrice Bellard (qemu's original author). qemacs is small enough so that it can be compiled as a 100kb executable, but also has a simple codebase

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:

FOSS Bioinformatics

a project by jafr

Investigate the state of bioinfo FOSS (mostly interested in DNA sequencing and sequence analysis) on Linux (and possibly other platforms), learn some algorithms, learn to use the available software, find what needs to be improved and if time permits, start improving.

Create the Draft/Concept doc for Studio 2.0

a project by mistinie

It's 1.5yrs since we've launched the last Studio version. Customers are asking about a roadmap, a new version... After discussions with AJ, Adrian, Alex, I want to create a draft plan/concept how such a Studio successor could look like.

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

x86 instructions decoder

a project by bpetkov

This is the tool I've been working on since HW11 and it needs more work. Actually, there's always something which could be done on it. It is basically an x86 instruction decoder with special emphasis on the kernel and decoding interesting pieces of it in order to help in the development of low-level patching techniques, among others. git repo: https://gitlab.suse.de/bp/x86d

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.

Gerrit CLI review tool

a project by iartarisi

Gerrit is used for code reviews by openstack and its related projects (e.g. chef cookbooks). The web interface is too slow when you get 100 changes to review each day. It would be nice to have a faster CLI. There are already some python client libraries available. I am thinking about either doing this as a standalone application with python and something like ncurses or an emacs/lighttable plugin. https://github.com/mapleoin/gerrit-el

openSUSE 13.2 ARM hackathon

a project by algraf

openSUSE 13.2 is taking shape on ARM, but we need to make sure we smoothen its edges to make an actual release out of it. The goal of this project is to make sure all devices we should run on actually work and that the last few packages necessary for productive use of ARM devices work properly on 13.2.

Support for WiFi-enabled Canon cameras in gphoto

a project by michal-m

I have a Canon PowerShot S120, which allows for browsing / copying photos over WiFi. There are apps for Android, iOS, and Windows to do that. The protocol uses upnp to discover the camera and the smartphone/computer and them some HTTP-based protocol. I have some code using libupnp for the discovery and a perl script that is capable of transfering one file, but it's far from complete. Plus, I need to refresh my memory, because the last commit is from January :-(. Now, there seems to be some support for such cameras in gphoto already. So the plan is to dive into gphoto and use what I learned about the protocol to fix the gphoto support. If you own some other WiFi-enabled Canon camera supported by the CameraWindow software, let me know.

Add support for RandR 1.4 (additional GPUs) into KDE display configuration

a project by michalsrb

Plan

RandR is X11 extension for configuring monitors and since version 1.4 also secondary GPUs. These secondary GPUs can either provide additional monitors to output to or can render individual applications instead of the main GPU. (Or even both at once.) Once a secondary GPU is configured to do render offloading, applications can be started with DRI_PRIME=<id> environment variable to actually render on it instead of the main one. There are also USB GPUs (dummy framebuffers) that can be hot-plugged.
