SUSE Manager/Spacewalk client debug/test shell

an idea by dmacvicar

When developing for SUSE Manager, it gets tiresome to setup clients in order to debug and test with clients. The idea is to create a nice shell (with history, command completion, colors) that allows to simulate being a client.

Static download endpoint for SUSE Manager

an invention by dmacvicar

The download end-point of Spacewalk/SUSE Manager resolves the packages from channels dynamically with a database query. With the integration of Salt into SUSE Manager we have the chance to rethink this.

Taskotop on the web

a project by dleidi

Taskotop is a tool to check what taskomatic is currently doing on a SUSE Manager server: it's a command line python tool. The core of the tool is to get some info about jobs that taskomatic is running with a fixed time cycle running some queries and showing results to the shell.

YaST module for (SUSE Manager) salt parametrizable formulas

a project by dmacvicar

Parametrizable formulas is a normal salt module plus some metadata in order to interactively parametrize them. The metadata is used to automatically generate forms that are then injected as pillar data. See original Hackweek project, SUSE Manager support for formulas blog article and its (internal for now) docs.

SUSE Manager / Salt integration revisited

a project by j_renner

There is a number of possible improvements to the architecture of SUSE Manager / Salt integration that should be investigated in order to improve the reliability and scalability of the backend: 1. Actions are currently scheduled in the minions using the schedule module of Salt. This brings problems with reliability as for instance a minion can be down at the specified schedule time which leads to actions not being executed. Scalability can be an issue as actions being scheduled for many minions might return results to the server at the same time. Instead it might be better to keep control over scheduled actions on the server to allow batching of actions as well as downtimes of minions or even the server. There is a work in progress branch to get started.

My Little Manager

a project by lucidd

Yes this project is yet another project for creating a Suse Manager clone. The motivation for that comes mainly from my need for a simple suse manager that i can easily run at home without the massive overhead involved in suse manager setup. Also since i mainly need to manage opensuse machines most of which are tumbleweed, suse managers repository model does not really work well in that case.
