devel:languages:perl has 2662 packages, but many of them are outdated because it's just a fight no man can win to update them.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I count 2662 packages in devel:languages:perl and 1188 of them are outdated.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