QDirStat - Qt-based directory statistics: KDirStat without any KDE, now based on Qt 5

a project by shundhammer

This is about porting the old KDE 3 based KDirstat to the latest Qt 5. KDirStat didn't use that much KDE infrastructure to begin with, and KDE seems to be more and more a moving target. Project repo and web site with more details:

Extend urlwatch to support monitoring of GitHub (and other git) repos

an idea by kbabioch

I'm currently using urlwatch to watch for new releases in upstream projects. It monitors the output of a URL and notifies you about any changes. This works fine for URLs, but there is currently no official support for GitHub. Due to the nature of the GitHub webpages, there is a some change each time you access the page and it is difficult to come up with the right set of filters. Since there is an official API that can be used to ask for changes in a particular repository, it would be nice if urlwatch had support for it. I've worked on a prototype in the past, but never came around to cleaning it up, and making it configurable through urlwatch's configuration files. Upstream is interested in this feature and is willing to merge it.

git-based mail client

an idea by KGronlund

I want to create a more modern mail storage format, which leverages git and tagging instead of folders to manage my mail. This is inspired by having used notmuch and mbsync for a long time, liking the good aspects of this setup but getting frustrated with the problems. Mainly the issue of storing mail on multiple computers with eventual consistency (for example being able to read mail on my laptop when travelling but my desktop computer when at home).

Git stochastic bisection

a project by jankara

Bisection is a well known method of localizing which commit caused a regression in a code repository. git-bisect is a particularly used tool for this problem in git repositories. However it is often the case that the failure is probabilistic in nature - either because we don't have a reliable reproducer of the failure and thus not reproducing a problem on a particular commit does not mean the problem is not still present there, or because of inherent variability of e.g. performance regressions. Bisection for such failures is problematic as it takes only one false result for the bisection to end up in an unrelated part of code history. So in these cases we usually have to heavily extend runtime of a reproducer or do multiple test runs or multiple bisection runs to minimize a chance of error. The aim of the project is to implement stochastic bisection for git. I.e., a method that will count with the fact that test results at each point of code history have some error rate and provide points in code history to test to find commit in code history that is with high probability introducing the regression in the smallest possible number of tests. Then we can use this method for bisection of performance problems in our performance testing grid Marvin.
