Projects in the topic perl update/replacement

an idea by jnweiger

Scanning books stopped 6 years ago. We need volunteers to take the scanner and walk through the offices. This is a good learning opportunity for trainees. The software could also be updated. If anybody looks for a replacement with a more mature opensource solution, Lars suggests KOHA which he already packaged in obs.

Add standardized REST interface to Hamsta

a project by pkacer

Hamsta currently lacks a standardized network interface that would allow other systems accessing its capabilities. There is a custom network interface with text-parsing based protocol that is poorly documented and needs to be implemented on the client side to be usable. This interface does not use any standardized way of communication or library. This project suggests to add a standardized web service interface (let us call it API) to Hamsta. Expected attributes are following.

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.

openQA webVTT subtitles

a project by bmwiedemann

The webVTT standard (nearly the same as the older SRT subtitles) allows to add subtitles to a video. We could use this in openQA to show which keys were pressed at that point in the video, in which line of code we were or on what event we waited. This could make debugging easier and might be instructive to users, too.

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devel:languages:perl has 2662 packages, but many of them are outdated because it's just a fight no man can win to update them.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 But this is evil: I count 2662 packages in devel:languages:perl and 1188 of them are outdated.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
