Obsolete: Stabilize Janus

an idea by ancorgs

During previous Hackweek, Jangouts (an alternative to Google Hangouts) was developed. Since then, it has served as well in the YaST team. Other teams are also using the internal instance regularly. But it cannot be adopted company-wide due to the instability of the main server component (Janus Gateway) when running on top of SLE12. For details, see this thread on the (internal) Reseach mailing list. I don't have the knowledge to fix the problems, but I'd be 100% available to help anybody trying to hunt the issues down (I'll be in Nuremberg during hackweek). As an alternative, I'm considering a plan B I would hate to do: dockerize Janus with Debian/Ubuntu since that seem to be the environment used by the Janus developers.

Internal shared images repository

a project by ancorgs

During the last CSM workshop we identified the need to have a good way to share the images we use for testing. We have documented the requirements and the current status in this wiki page (we even have a diagram). So analysis is done... it's time for action. The solution should be relatively easy to implement using our portfolio of solutions. Coordinating all the potential users should be easier during Hackweek, specially since I'll be in Nuremberg (and I can physically chase most people ;-) ).

Kernel Boot/Testing Framework with LinuxKit

a project by vrothberg

Problem statement

Once a kernel is built, a developer/janitor may want to boot the kernel for various reasons, such as performing simple boot test or running tests and workloads from user space or simply playing around in a shell. However, an easy to use and a descriptive tool to perform those tasks doesn't exist to our knowledge.

Improve supplychain security in the build service

an idea by kbabioch

In the past I've worked on a set of scripts to identify potential for improvement of the supply chain within our build service. For now RPM files can be scanned for unused signature files that are available upstream and look for potentially unused https:// links, although they are available. These scripts work on a prototype-basis, but there is a lot of follow-up work to do, e.g.:

Improve openSUSE infrastructure

a project by lrupp

There is always something to do if you run the infrastructure for such a big project like openSUSE.... Our Admin wiki currently lists over 80 machines - and while we already "salted" some of them, there is always room for improvement and room to learn something new just by making your hands dirty and diving into the administrator role for a machine.
