Minnowboard is the platform for UEFI development and supports UEFI capsule update since 0.99, and we are supposed to be able to test the feature with fwupd. However, there is no capsule file in fwupd.org or the official firmware download site. Besides, the Minnowboard firmware source in the current edk2/edk2-platforms git couldn't build due to the recent change of directories. My goal is to rebase the Minnowboard build system to the current git master and create a working up-to-date firmware. Signing the firmware properly would be a plus so that we can apply a private repo in fwupd.org for the development or QA testing.
openQA currently supports different architectures: x86(_64), ppc64le, aarch64 and s390x. In this project I would like to add support for RISC-V. First emulated ontop of x86, like we previously did with aarch64.
As openSUSE images for that processor are already generated, it could be useful to do some basic automated tests on them.
We've developed a bit of a habit within the Cloud Solutions leadership team to talk about new culinary endeavors after the weekend, telling the others about what fine dishes were created and sharing photos. We discovered that if we combine them to a menu we'll probably have the best international Dinner in the world but since we're all far away from each other we need to share the recipes to make it work.
We're likely not the only ones doing that, so why not start a SUSE cookbook in a open source developer fashion, in a git repository and jointly feed - pardon - fill it with recipes for food the SUSE family likes.
When we experience a early boot crash, we are not able to analyze the kernel dump, as user-space wasn't able to load the crash system. The idea is to make the crash system compiled into the host kernel (think of initramfs) so that we can create a kernel dump really early in the boot process.
