GCC Performance/Regression Dashboard

a project by marxin

For development purpose, it is very useful to have an infrastructure that can spot regressions based on commit base. Currently, our existing infrastructure runs mainly SPEC benchmark and is cumbersome from perspective of any further development. I would like to build a replacement that will combine buildbot framework with a custom web project (based on Django framework). The web project will be used both for submitting reports coming from a buildbot slave and for UI which will serve plots and data. If you want to inspire a bit more, please visit Chrome Performance Dashboard or Mozilla telemetry. I hope I can make a simple extendable project that is going to eventually replace existing implementation.

Test methods to transfer NSS and DCSS objects from one z/VM system to another

a project by markkp

Last Hackweek I created a rescue system that is composed of a SUSE Linux kernel in an NSS (Named Saved System) and an xip2fs file system in a DCSS (Dis-Continguous Save Segment). This allows any Linux guest on a z/VM system to say "#cp ipl rescue" and have a fully functional SUSE Linux Enterprise system come up to allow them to fix what ever is wrong with the guest. This Hackweek I want to try to figure out a way to take those two components and package them so that our customers could download them and put them on their z/VM system, using only typical z/VM tools. The rescue system is the output of a Kiwi build in the internal Build Service, which means it can be easily updated as needed.

Use OpenStack Rally for SUSE Cloud testing

a project by evshmarnev

OpenStack is, undoubtedly, a really huge ecosystem of cooperative services. Rally is a benchmarking tool that answers the question: “How does OpenStack work at scale?”. To make this possible, Rally automates and unifies multi-node OpenStack deployment, cloud verification, benchmarking & profiling. Rally does it in a pluggable way, making it possible to check whether OpenStack is going to work well on, say, a 1k-servers installation under high load. Thus it can be used as a basic tool for an OpenStack CI/CD system that would continuously improve its SLA, performance, and stability. <img src="https://wiki.openstack.org/w/images/thumb/e/ee/Rally-Actions.png/850px-Rally-Actions.png" width="700">

Scouts Canada Badge Tracker

an idea by alexharford

My kids are in Scouting, and their badges are tracked manually in a spreadsheet by their leaders. Their progress is tracked as they progress through the levels (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Rovers) but it's a manual handoff. I wanted to make a web app that would let groups track the kids' progress as they move between groups, and also learn Flask / SQLAlchemy.

Enhance Staging Project process: reduce the gap between Letter staging and ADI staging

a project by mlin7442

We have a known defect exists in Staging Project process, according to the staging project design(in-ring/non-ring), the requests of a application stack can be dispatched to letter staging and adi staging both, in case the request staged in adi staging relies the request staged in letter staging which may causes sometimes the request in adi staging will not be checked-in at the same round, this leads that application stack have different version in TW and those package had request left in adi staging may does not work well as version unmatched to other library. We see this issue happened on Qt5 stack; KDE Applications, etc. For example: a Qt5 stack update, libqt5-qtbase will be staged in a letter staging however libqt5-qtwebview will be staged in a adi staging, once libqt5-qtbase be accepted that libqt5-qtwebview won't be accept in the same round due to it can not be built before libqt5-qtbase merged to Factory but after - 2-phase update. Therefore we need a way to handle those cases to reduce the gap between Letter staging and ADI staging. The concept of this idea:

Experiment with libfontconfig optimizations

a project by michalsrb

This is preparation/accompanying project to my school thesis. Fontconfig is library that keeps database of fonts installed in system and gives applications ability to query it. Fontconfig is currently searching the database in naive way and can be quite slow if there is many fonts installed. Most applications make several font queries when starting and fontconfig is slowing down their start.

Use avahi for mdns queries in hplip

an idea by mwilck

The HPLIP package contains a custom implementation of mDNS queries (actually, 2: one in the core C code and one in python for the administration tools). This implementation is simplistic and sub-optimal. I fixed a problem of this implementation in the past, but unfortunately my patches don't apply on the latest HPLIP releases, and aren't easily forward-ported. The Right Thing to do for mDNS on Linux use use avahi calls. I want to look into using avahi for this purpose in HPLIP.

Adopt mkdocs-pandoc

an idea by jgrassler

Back in the day I wrote mkdocs-pandoc, a tool that lets you generate Pandoc from documentation in mkdocs documentation. The target format for mkdocs is HTML pages. The target format for Pandoc is not really limited: you can use it to generate HTML, asciidoc, PDF (via LaTeX), EPUB and many others. Now I do not really have a use for mkdocs-pandoc at the moment, so I've been letting its maintenance slip - basically I'm not maintaining it anymore. It is still a useful tool, and I'd be happy to see it dusted off and adopted by someone who uses it actively enough to maintain it. I'll ask around among the various folks who forked it (there are a few), but maybe there's someone at SUSE who'd be interested as well.

This can be useful for learning, but judging from dri-developer discussions, also useful for testing hotplug races, plane blending and finding other KMS/DRI infrastructure bugs.

A programming language exploration

a project by KGronlund

I would like to have a programming language that has the performance characteristics of C, but integrates some programming language features that I like from other languages. My first goal would be to start with a language that is very limited in scope and compiles directly to C, and step by step add to it. There are a lot of programming languages, but very few that handles memory as an explicit resource. To be able to explicitly manage memory is a very powerful technique and essential for applications such as high performance video games.
