All documentation as program code

an invention by jsmeix

I like to try out if it is possible to write a program that does not have any kind of the traditionally separated documentation (like external files that contain the documentation texts or comments in the program code). Instead all documentation must be implemented as code at the same place where the matching functiomnality is implemented (i.e. each function implements also its documentation). In the end the user should get only the executable that he can run to let it do the intended functionality and also to provide any kind of documentation. What I do not want is a dumb '--help' option that lets the program spit out its built-in documentation. What I would like to have is that the user can run the executable in some kind of self-inspecting way. I mean: While it does the intended functionality, it can also provide documentation so that the user can explore the program while running it. In the end the user experience should be more like a text adventure ;-)

try to understand cups > 1.5

a project by mhocko

Starting with CUPS 1.6 things have changed considerably. Clients are no longer discovering broadcasted printers anymore. Distributions (e.g. Debian) has backported the original protocol into cups-daemon package but this doesn't seem to work either on my laptop. I would like to look and try to understand what the hack is going on here. The outcome should be my understanding of the change and how to configure CUPs to behave reasonably again.

Use Relax-and-Recover (rear) as generic installer in the plain SUSE installation system

an invention by jsmeix

The basic idea is is to boot the plain SUSE installation system (inst-sys) but to not let it run YaST. Instead inst-sys runs Relax-and-Recover (rear) as generic installer that does the system installation.
