salien - convert deb/pkgbuild/... into .spec

an idea by bmwiedemann

There is the alien program to convert binary packages between various formats, but it would be even nicer to be able to take a debian or archlinux build spec and convert it into an rpm .spec file. Apart from the syntax conversion, this will need some mapping for package names, so that BuildRequires and Requires match the target.

I already have a [python script][0] processing mails received in the Calendar folder to get the ical event and push it to [radicale][1]. It has several drawbacks: * It doesn't detect appointment changes (pretty easy to fix as each event has a unique ID)

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

a project by duwe

Building on top of <a href=",%20Rev2&quot;&gt;Rouslan Dimitrov's Microcontroller Class D Amplifier</a>, I developed the idea to feed the power amplifier with PCM data directly. Rouslan does some dithering and noise shaping, but I'm convinced that proper interpolation would sound better. The ATtiny is too slow to do even cubic interpolation so I'll move that into the host.

error DB

an idea by cyberiad

Create a database of common and not so common error messages, warnings, etc. to provide references to bugzilla, TIDs, wikis, etc. When working in support you often run into issues that have unspecific or misleading error message. Google might be helpful, but especially with kernel dumps, longer traces, complex issues this doesn't help.

Create Quickstart for OpenStack on OpenStack (Triple-O)

a project by dirkmueller

Currently, opensuse-quickstart sets up a one-machine Cloud based on OpenStack, either with KVM or virtualisation. In order for bootstrapping further hosts, it would be much easier to set up only a bare-metal cloud on one machine, and PXE boot a 2nd machine via OpenStack Nova/Ironic.

create openSUSE 13.1 images for ARMv7 and ARMv8

openSUSE & SLE support for Puppet modules located at the Forge

One of the PuppetLabs guys is trying to enforce best practices on administering Puppet modules, by using base modules and build services and roles on top of them. That way we can re-use external / third-party modules from, ideally without touching them at all. He names that "the Lego approach". Full article.

Add standardized REST interface to Hamsta

a project by pkacer

Hamsta currently lacks a standardized network interface that would allow other systems accessing its capabilities. There is a custom network interface with text-parsing based protocol that is poorly documented and needs to be implemented on the client side to be usable. This interface does not use any standardized way of communication or library. This project suggests to add a standardized web service interface (let us call it API) to Hamsta. Expected attributes are following.

Simple stretchable storage cloud

an idea by hreinecke

A project idea I've been carrying around for several years now. Based upon the 'referrals' concept from SPC-4 it should be rather easy to build up large volumes spread over several nodes. I'm thinking of an iSCSI target here, which gets updated via a corosync engine with any volume updates from the cluster.
