Improve supplychain security in the build service

an idea by kbabioch

In the past I've worked on a set of scripts to identify potential for improvement of the supply chain within our build service. For now RPM files can be scanned for unused signature files that are available upstream and look for potentially unused https:// links, although they are available. These scripts work on a prototype-basis, but there is a lot of follow-up work to do, e.g.:

Tools to make keysigning fun again (replacement for caff)

an idea by kbabioch

There is a tool called caff, which is the de-facto standard when dealing with keysigning (on a large scale, e.g. after a key signing party). This tool hasn't been touch in years, is written and configured in Perl (hence cannot be read and/or maintained :smile:) and is not easy to package, because of a lot of dependencies, etc. It is not even available in our default repositories (at least for Tumbleweed). In general there seems to be a certain kind of frustration with this software, but there is no real alternative available yet. Ideally the new toolset should allow to organize a complete keysigning party, e.g. it should assist the organizer with:

Extend urlwatch to support monitoring of GitHub (and other git) repos

an idea by kbabioch

I'm currently using urlwatch to watch for new releases in upstream projects. It monitors the output of a URL and notifies you about any changes. This works fine for URLs, but there is currently no official support for GitHub. Due to the nature of the GitHub webpages, there is a some change each time you access the page and it is difficult to come up with the right set of filters. Since there is an official API that can be used to ask for changes in a particular repository, it would be nice if urlwatch had support for it. I've worked on a prototype in the past, but never came around to cleaning it up, and making it configurable through urlwatch's configuration files. Upstream is interested in this feature and is willing to merge it.

Record SUSE's Nürnberg office from above and have fun (with drones)

an idea by kbabioch

Since I'm a little bit of a drone-a-matic myself, and I enjoy flying around with drones, I propose to fly around/above the SUSE building, record some footage, and make a cool promo video out of it. We could potentially use this footage (together with some recordings from inside the building taken by hand) as a promotion for the company and show others (via social media, etc.) how cool of a place SUSE and the Nürnberg office actually is.

Improve monitoring in internal infrastructure

a project by kbabioch

The monitoring in our internal infrastructure needs some love and attention. I want to spent some time during this hack week on the monitoring by fixing old checks, implementing new checks and making sure that those are configured and installed via configuration management. Checks I have in mind for instance are:
