Revive (web)pin for openSUSE

a record by lrupp

Which package currently provides libfoo.so.6 ? A question for/from packagers and currently not easy to answer, even if the Build Service might know about the content of packages inside a repository as he created the nice filelist.gz files inside the repomd directories with all the needed information already.

Zeroconf with others (GNOME Shell, Firefox, Wayland and others)

a project by cxiong

Zeroconf/Bonjour/Avahi is a very interesting technique that targets at freeing users of services from tedious IP-based network configuration by automatic-distributed address-assigning, name-assigning and service discovery/browsing. It's named officially as zeroconf, Bonjour is the implementation in OS X, iOS and Windows, while Avahi is for Unix-like system. However, while Bonjour is popular and widely used in Apple products, few users take advantage of Avahi in Linux world and the number of applications that do integrate Avahi are still just a few and this feature is not often used.

create openSUSE 13.1 images for ARMv7 and ARMv8

an idea by dirkmueller

Currently the last working images for ARMv7/v8 are openSUSE 12.3 based. Since then a lot of new features and regressions have been introduced, so it is time to refresh the appliances based on 13.1 and make them work.

bug screening helper

Experiment with uselessd as a systemd replacement on openSUSE 13.1

an invention by dsterba

The base version for uselessd is systemd-208, which is the version used in 13.1. Let's try if a direct substitution of the binaries works and watch out for the problems. Expected result of the project is to have a working package with "Conflicts: systemd" and "Provides: systemd". The goal is not to fix all problems, a stripped down system with uselessd is considered a good achievement. Anything more complicated could build on top of this.

HTML5 testdrive for SUSE Studio

an invention by JKrupa2

There are more and more devices with no Adobe Flash plugin support in web browser (new Android and Apple phones and tables, etc.). The aim of this project is to replace Flash testdrive in SUSE Studio with HTML5 client. So our current implementation bases on our project from a previous Cloud workshop which uses noVNC.

Reimplementation of "quilt setup"

an invention by jdelvare

I would like to change the way "quilt setup" is implemented. At the moment, we call rpmbuild and intercept the calls to tar and patch in order to record the location where archives are extracted and the order and options of the patches which apply to them. Then we replay that record to create our own quilt-compatible source tree.

Git like subcommand support for zypper

Add subcommand support for zypper. That is, if 'zypper foo' is not found, look for %{_libexec}/zypper/zypper-foo just like git does. Then those subcommands could be binaries linked to libzypp or just scripts.

write mkcloudcloud - a nested cloud setup software

a project by bmwiedemann

In https://github.com/SUSE-Cloud/automation/ we already have mkcloud, which can setup a whole SUSE Cloud on a single host for testing. However, it would be cool, if (instead of a single machine) we could use cloud.suse.de with its capability to add extra networks as requested. This can be pretty easy, as much of the mkcloud code is about making libvirt do the right thing

bugzilla auto-assignment using artificial stupidity

a project by bmwiedemann

A lot of openSUSE bugs are filed with plenty details but without a specific assignee so often many days are lost between filing and a developer seeing the report. Instead of training a neuronal network to do artificial intelligence, this project focuses on the integration of how we can make useful proposals of assignments. It will probably use perl regexps for the start.

Improve openSUSE infrastructure

a project by lrupp

There is always something to do if you run the infrastructure for such a big project like openSUSE.... Our Admin wiki currently lists over 80 machines - and while we already "salted" some of them, there is always room for improvement and room to learn something new just by making your hands dirty and diving into the administrator role for a machine.

CephFS client for Android using the Linux Kernel Library and Wireguard

a project by dmdiss

CephFS is awesome, but without a VPN it's not safe to be routed over the internet, and it lacks client support on many platforms. The Linux Kernel Library allows for the linux kernel to be built as a cross-platform user-space library and integrated into a regular Android, Windows, macOS, etc. application. This project combines CephFS, LKL and wireguard, and sprinkles some io-uring on top. My objectives are:

make "predictable network interface names" more predictable

an idea by mkubecek

Since the so-called "predictable names" for network interfaces were introduced, the concept and mainly its implementation has been a target of a lot of critique and sometimes even hate. On the other hand, similar idea works reasonably well for block devices. In my opinion, the main reason why "predictable names" reception was not nearly as good as for block devices is the difference in how the implementation works. For block devices, the device name provided by kernel is preserved and other names based on multiple naming schemes (by path, by UUID, by various device identifiers) are created as symlinks so that all of them (including the original kernel one) can be used simultaneously. On the other hand, network interface has only one name and as it is not represented by a file, symlinks cannot be used for aliases. Therefore even if there are multiple naming schemes (e.g. based on BIOS enumeration, bus address etc.), only one of them can be used for each network device and it's rather unpredictable which one is it going to be. Moreover, some of the generated names are rather long, ugly and inconveninent and unlike with block devices, one cannot just ignore them and use a different name (e.g. one provided by kernel).

Package odpdown

a project by jgrassler

I have been known to talk anybody I held presentations with into using odpdown. That was always a little awkward, since it started off with pip install odpdown, rather than zypper install odpdown. I want to fix this awkwardness and package odpdown properly so it can be installed as a RPM package. I'll also include the auxiliary infrastructure I've added around it over the years (various Makefiles and scripts for generating transcripts from comments) to the package so others can benefit from that stuff, too.

dmidecode: no more open-coded printfs

a project by jdelvare

There's a long standing request to extend the output of dmidecode to something that would be machine-readable. Something like an XML or JSON-based format. Unfortunately this can't be implemented right now because the output of dmidecode is generated by open-coded printfs as the DMI table is being parsed, with no intermediate structures nor temporary buffers. While implementing a machine-parseable output is out of scope for a single hack week, let's remember that even the longest journey starts with a single footstep. I would like to try and rewrite the 5200 lines of code of dmidecode in such a way that printing the output would be somewhat separated from parsing the DMI table and done by a limited set of dedicated functions. Alternative output formats could later hook into such functions.

Reproducible Source/Build Transparency Watcher

https://gitlab.com/JanZerebecki/transparency-log-watcher Trillian is used for Reproducible Source, Build and Certificate Transparency. So it could be used to log the input to OBS and the build results and make zypper check it before installing an rpm. But currently clients wouldn't detect if the log shows them a different version than anyone else. See if there is a way so this can be detected.

Port some classic game to Linux

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.
