1% of SUSE Manager's functionality in 0.1% of the lines of code

Let's create a much simpler SUSE Manager — one you could use at home! Users should be able to deploy and operate in minutes with minimal configuration, while still retaining the very core features that make SUSE Manager useful!

Scope

We explicitly leave out anything that Salt or Cobbler can do: goal is only repository management.

That means:

  • downloading repos from various sources (plain http repos is implemented, we want to add SCC, SUSE Manager and RHN in this HackWeek or later)
  • storing them in various backends (filesystem and AWS S3 are implemented)
  • serve them in plain http (to be done in this HackWeek)
  • add filtering abilities to the served http repos (eg. appending "?upto=2017-10-01" to the URL will serve a repo with updates up to October. To be done in this HackWeek or later)

Tech

We use the Go programming language because it can be picked up by any programmer in one week. We aim for a 12-factor app for maximal deployment flexibility in cloud and container settings.

      That project sounds pretty similar to what RMT is supposed to do. RMT is a successor to SMT, which is already SUMA's younger sibling with less functionality :-)

      I've created a hackweek project for it.

      We plan to release RMT for SLES15, if it sounds like RMT is something you can use -- you are welcome to hack on it, or to just give it a try, we'll appreciate your feedback. :-)

        I am evaluating to contribute to RMT - I am still not sure if it fits the sumaform use case or not. Thanks for letting me know!
