To really start with vagrant within the company and our company it would be awesome to create real SUSE packages for vagrant and some other cool and important plugins. It's not that easy like it sounds because vagrant runs within the upstream rpm in an embedded ruby container that needs to be fixed for our system packages.

This will greatly enhance the usefulness of QEMU virtual serial ports, because the Linux kernel interprets a break on the serial console as a SysRq, but there is currently no way to pass this signal over a pseudo-terminal.
DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by teh SUSE documentation team.
The official DAPS release is 1.1.7. SUSE internally DAPS 2.0 rc2 has been released. A few issues need to be fixed (mainly closing open bugs and adding missing test cases). The goal of this project is to fix these issues, so DAPS 2.0 can be publicly released.
During the last CSM workshop we identified the need to have a good way to share the images we use for testing. We have documented the requirements and the current status in this wiki page (we even have a diagram).
So analysis is done... it's time for action. The solution should be relatively easy to implement using our portfolio of solutions. Coordinating all the potential users should be easier during Hackweek, specially since I'll be in Nuremberg (and I can physically chase most people ;-) ).
The afl fuzzer is an interesting tool that uses compile time instrumentation and genetic algorithms to automatically produce test cases that will trigger different code paths in binary...
In openSUSE Asia summit 2015, there was a talk about the software defined networking, from the virtual switch, the controller, to the simulator. Just want to take a look at open vswitch and Ryu to learn more about SDN.
Very basic extension for wicked should contains following:<br>
Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP.
I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.
Sometimes we would like to have ordinary people join our mumble (voice-communication) meetings which is easiest via telephone (or web-browser?).
This could use python-pymumble, which allows to build bots that can record audio and playback audio

We are missing a set of Icinga plug-ins for our cloud.
The goal of this project is create a package monitoring-plugins-cloud. The package will contains Icinga checks for different could services and create a easy way how to integrate cloud service status into Icinga monitor.

The idea is getting a general knowledge of how QT Linguist works, and help FET with some translations.
FET is a timetable creator, that is available for openSUSE at https://en.opensuse.org/FET, and allows a user to create a timetable, usually for educational institutions, with a lot of different available constraints.
QLogo is a UCBLogo-compatible implementation of the Logo language using Qt and OpenGL. QLogo was designed with the language interpreter integrated into the GUI.
For Hackweek 18 I want to separate the interpreter from the GUI so that QLogo can be run from the command line or from a shell script.
I'm building a web-site for my drawing/painting things.
This hack week project is an Unity3D app, available in Android, IOS and HTML5 platforms.
The idea is to welcome new joiners inviting them to play this game. The game will have questions about SUSE, the new joiners will need to ask other SUSE employees for the correct answer, socializing and learning SUSE culture at the same time. When they win the game an e-mail will be sent to a concrete e-mail address (it might be someone from facilities) and they will receive a small gift as Welcome Pack. For instance, they could receive the small chameleon or a t-shirt.
Update: Ruqola ('zypper in ruqola') is now in Tumbleweed and Leap 15.2!
For Hack Week 19 (Feb 2020) main goal is to test, polish packaging, potentially do fixes and select a snapshot to submit to openSUSE Tumbleweed. Upstream made one release but it was not optimal, development pace has sped up a lot lately and the client has become more stable and usable.
