Reduce the number of builds in the openSUSE Build Service

a project by dmuhamedagic

In case any of the source files changed, openSUSE Build Service rebuilds the dependent packages regardless of whether that particular modification affects the dependency. This makes our resources footprint bigger (and the electrical power bills higher). It also affects users, because every new package build causes the package manager to include that package in the next update thus consuming network bandwidth and resources of users' computers.

Create tool for applying patches from kernel-source.git against OBS kernel project

a record by sleep_walker

Sometimes we get from Labs team patch from kernel-source.git. It is nice as it contains not only patch against expended kernel tree, but also changes series.conf and changes file and identical patch is in GIT. Unfortunately it always leads to conflicts, tarballs need to be extracted and then repacked so most of the job is done manually. I'd like to create tool which would help apply such patch automatically whenever it is possible.

Simple images in OBS

Bootstrap openSUSE for MIPS

a project by a_faerber

While in the past MIPS boards were either low-end PIC32 or found in routers running OpenWRT at most, Imagination themselves have recently released the Creator CI20 board (Ingenic, MIPS32) running Debian. And the Shield Pro (previously iGuardian) kickstarter project (Octeon-III, MIPS64) promises to become a playground for testing KVM hardware virtualization. Porting openSUSE to MIPS will involve setting up an OBS instance linked to Factory (update: done) and cross-compiling a set of packages for an initial bootstrap (update: in progress). Maybe this can be scripted to some degree, as there will be some overlap with the ARM ILP32 port project.

Update cpan modules in OBS

an invention by coolo

devel:languages:perl has 2662 packages, but many of them are outdated because it's just a fight no man can win to update them. So we update them whenver we hit a problem. But this is evil: I count 2662 packages in devel:languages:perl and 1188 of them are outdated. So I'll write a script... just as we did with gems

Getting OBS to build virt-builder repositories

an invention by cbosdonnat

virt-builder main repository contains quite a few distro images, but no opensuse one. The goal of this project is to make OBS able to create a virt-builder repository out of a few kiwi packages. Ideally this would later be used to provide some official opensuse images for virt-builder.

Implement external OBS api for better debugging

an invention by k0da

Hacking on OBS dashboard requires you to have a "real" data from staging projects. this is done by quering backend directly. So either you need to have a production db deployed or you have old broken data. Let's ask the real OBS for current staging status with external API.

Automate Haskell Packaging

an invention by psimons

We have various individual tools to automate parts of the Haskell packaging process, like cabal-rpm, but those tools aren't integrated into a fully automated system that keeps Haskell packages up-to-date with as little human intervention as possible. I would like to build that system. Stackage provides us with an accurate list of packages and versions that are known to work together well, and there are basically two flavors: the nightly snapshot (bleeding edge) and the LTS release (stable API). The former is appropriate for Tumbleweed, IMHO, and the latter is appropriate for stable releases like SLE or Leap. Now, we can use cabal-rpm to generate spec files automatically for all packages in a Stackage release and check them into OBS. The process does need some tweaking, however, because cabal-rpm generates spec files that don't always work well for SUSE. We could (a) branch cabal-rpm and add SUSE-specific know-how to remedy that issue or we could (b) maintain a set of patches that adapt the generated spec files to our needs. Once the Stackage releases are available in an OBS development project, we need another automated process that submits all updated packages to openSUSE:Factory, etc.

Bring Linux memory scanner scanmem/GameConqueror to openSUSE

an invention by sparschauer

All other distributions have scanmem/gameconqueror packages. scanmem is a command line memory scanner to locate variables in memory and GameConqueror is the Python/GTK3 front-end for it which also provides game trainer features. But it is not only a game cheating tool. It can also help testing applications, debugging memory issues, watching variables in memory or it can be used for reverse-engineering. Hackers also use it for things like ping spoofing. As the upstream maintainer of this tool I'd like to bring it to openSUSE and maintain it there.

Provide tools to analyze the life-time of maintenance and release requests in IBS/OBS

an invention by psimons

We need statistical analysis and key performance indicators to describe the lifetime of maintenance and release requests in IBS, for example: - How long does an update take starting from the time the first maintenance request is created and stopping at the time the update is released to customers?

Recipe for packaging Electron apps

an idea by bear454

Electron apps are popping up everywhere, from the Atom editor to the Rocket.Chat client to Kap, a cross-platform open-source screen recorder. Electron apps are based on web technologies, and built from the ground up to be platform-agnostic. The electron framework is open source, and most of the apps are as well, but they are typically distributed (for Linux) as either a tarball or via npm.

openQA Package Testing

a project by RBrownSUSE

openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal. 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?

Distribution source code repository/browser

an idea by mkoutny

Motivation: You know a particular function name and would like to know which package(s) it comes from. Approximation: It is possible to search in code on Github hoping for a match in upstream repo not being too far from our distro.

Ant Ivy OBS resolver

an invention by cbosdonnat

SUSE Manager uses an ivy repository on the R&D network to get the packaged jar to build against. To remove the manual maintenance of that repository and allow external contributors to hack the Java code of Uyuni / SUSE Manager we need to provide an Ivy plugin that gets the jars directly from OBS.

Modernize Mash deployment

a project by seanmarlow

Mash is a Python based CI/CD pipeline for automated testing and publishing of public cloud images. Currently the production and development deployment for the package is inconsistent, slow and manual. This is a barrier to rapid development, deployment and testing. It also means the development workflow is different than production. This can lead to production issues which were not seen during development. In order to modernize the Mash workflow I plan to spend the week digging into a plethora of tools to first learn then build out a new workflow. The goal is to simplify deployment by choosing tools that provide consistency, modularity and repeatability. By leveraging the best tools available we can harden the code and accelerate the release cycle.
