Experiment with uselessd as a systemd replacement on openSUSE 13.1

an invention by dsterba

The base version for uselessd is systemd-208, which is the version used in 13.1. Let's try if a direct substitution of the binaries works and watch out for the problems. Expected result of the project is to have a working package with "Conflicts: systemd" and "Provides: systemd". The goal is not to fix all problems, a stripped down system with uselessd is considered a good achievement. Anything more complicated could build on top of this.

Zero Trust vSphere Provisioning from Rancher

an idea by wjimenez

Currently, when Rancher tries to provision a Kubernetes cluster on vSphere, it needs to initiate API calls to the vSphere endpoint. In a hybrid cloud environment this often means that the Rancher server is not in the same network as the vSphere endpoint. Therefore inbound access is required to be added to a firewall so Rancher can reach the vSphere system. This naturally poses a security concern and creates administrative burden on our users who have to go through a security review to get this approved. If instead of requiring direct API access, an agent could exist inside the network where the vSphere API lived, then this agent could broker the communication between the Rancher server and the downstream API. The agent would simply initiate an outbound API connection to the Rancher server (much like any node agent or cluster agent currently) and simultaneously proxy any API calls that Rancher needs to make to vSphere. This would also have the benefit of being able to be run through a HTTP proxy, which many security teams will appreciate as a less risky connectivity model.

Rewrite transactional-update in C++

a project by fos

transactional-update, the application to update read-only systems such as openSUSE MicroOS and openSUSE Kubic and the Transactional Server installations of openSUSE Leap, openSUSE Tumbleweed and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, evolved from a POC to a fully fledged solution - and is currently completely written in Bash. This has been working really well in the past, but is gradually reaching its limits, especially when thinking about supporting additional file systems or ports to other Linux distributions - yes, we have a huge interest in other distributions adopting our technology. A C++ version would simplify those abstractions, but would it also make maintenance of the complete application easier? Check that as part of a POC and refresh C++ knowledge on the way there.

Google Hangouts killer: WebRTC-based video conferencing system

Focus Friendly Desktop Adaptations

a project by wstephenson

Background

Given the number of different demands on our time and attention, it becomes increasing hard to focus and find the 'flow state' where a developer can be most productive. Interruptions due to chat notifications, email, and updater applets all break focus. Additionally, the desktop metaphor has in most cases failed to evolve as the browser and other MDI interfaces have become the focus for many users, and increased performance has allowed us to keep more tasks running and present on the desktop at once, presenting a higher cognitive load to the user.

But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?

I want to fix this awkwardness and package odpdown properly so it can be installed as a RPM package. I'll also include the auxiliary infrastructure I've added around it over the years (various Makefiles and scripts for generating transcripts from comments) to the package so others can benefit from that stuff, too.

Automated test for game + only web based dev + Python openQA

an invention by okurz

motivation

Test automation can be fun and openQA is good at it but it has limitations. This project is meant to find out where the limits are for applications with lots of things moving on the screen, e.g. a game. Completely unrelated, web based tools become the norm for many users, e.g. when working from a chromebook or similar environments. The idea here is to try to use only web based tools and not force users to use a terminal which can be frightening :) As a third requirement: Some people are not feeling comfortable using openQA "because tests are written in Perl". This is not necessarily true because tests are rather written using a simplistic test API and only a small subset of Perl knowledge is necessary, however, we still want to support other entry points so there is Python support added in https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1558 . To find out what this new way is capable of this project should use only that Python support and find out any restrictions.
