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.

buit: fancy ultra fast mail client or "my local gmail"

a project by dmacvicar

My current mail setup is mu4e and emacs based mail client included with the amazing mu mail indexer. mu works similar to notmuch but allows easy bidirectional operation with the original Maildir. Add mbsync (isync) to sync imap locally and msmtp and you have a full mail setup.

SUSE Manager plugin/extension system

an idea by dmacvicar

Some of SUSE Manager features are quite vertical to the rest of the system. A plugin/extension mechanism should allow for adding these verticals installing a single package/rpm.

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.

a project by dmacvicar

terraform-provider-libvirt supports CoreOS ignition file/content, which end rendered as kernel command line options (the provider does some nice stuff like allowing you to pass the json content and it will take care of putting it into a temporary file). The idea is to:

Research telemetry for (open)SUSE products

an idea by dmacvicar

Most of design is done still with a embarrassing amount of data. Having released software for decades, we still don't know exactly what module is the most used, what workflows the customers are following, where do customers fail. It is all guesses and opinions. The idea of this project is to research:

Deploying software.opensuse.org

a project by dmacvicar

After an internal call for help to take over software.opensuse.org deployment, I spend some time studying the code in order to find out what would it mean to take it over. The main reason was a PR from the community that has not been merged, and deployment depending on internal SUSE employees.

Play with Matrix.org as replacement for IRC

a project by dmacvicar

Matrix.org is a project to create a protocol and server implementation to replace IRC. Unlike closed tools like Slack, or even open Slack clones like Rocket.chat, Matrix is not focused on a web-client only, but on the protocol to cover all types of clients (text, desktop, web), it is federated (no single server), and it covers good IRC integration (the public matrix server is even on Freenode), and it adds features that Slack clones have like persistent history, pictures, etc.

Implement QEMU Firmware Config device support in Linuxrc/AutoYaST

a project by dmacvicar

While normally data is passed to linuxrc (including an AutoYaST profile), modern auto-install tools like Ignition from CoreOS support a very interesting method: the QEMU Firmware Config device. This allows to read from inside the VM a blob by reading /sys/firmware/qemu_fw_cfg/by_name/opt/keyname. The driver is included in recent Linux kernels.

Hydrogen Drum Machine: export to hardware drum machine

a project by dmacvicar

Hydrogen is a software drum machine and pattern editor. While it can export and play through MIDI, which is enough to play through my SR-16, it is not clear how one could record patterns and songs from Hydrogen.
