This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing.
It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!
The webui is currently the poor cousin of the OBS parts even though it's wildly used. It's a pain in the ass to code for it
as there is not a API for most things you need to do - and if there is it's cumbersome to use.
Redmine.suse.de (as an inhouse tool) is very close to be a jump in replacement for Trello.com (the outhouse tool).
Investigate into setting up a redmine-board so that it has exactly (and only) the features a Trello board has,
The bootloader menu has to be able to list snapshots created with tagged attribute by snapper or other tools. These attributes control how snapshots are displayed and organized in the boot menu. All the changes are reflected in real time, that is when a snapshot is created it's ready to boot without the hassle to call grub2-mkconfig to refresh menu. The operation and navigating to the snapshot is intuitive and out of box and booting is even more easy to hit the button.
The hackweek is based on current implementation to improve the code structure and testing, like code clean up and make it in better shape get upstreamed, improving the menu to use extended attribute to organize the boot menu with defined attributes which can be tagged by snapshot tools like snapper etc.
Wicked is a network configuration infrastructure incorporating a number of existing frameworks into a unified architecture, providing a DBUS interface to network configuration.
Currently the last working images for ARMv7/v8 are openSUSE 12.3 based. Since then a lot of new features and regressions have been introduced, so it is time to refresh the appliances based on 13.1 and make them work.

Has no hacker:
Hackweek is here! I think this is the best week of the year to sit down altogether and exchange ideas and suggestions. The main topic is Automation. The goal is that many of these ideas might help various teams within SUSE to engage their business reasons better in defining key expectations and improve the quality of our software products. No fear of change -- the aim is to propose a modern pipeline in a less-invasive manner. Everybody has an idea, everybody has a voice! Brainstorming together can be useful to many different roles, including testers, analysts and developers. Let's have a chit-chat and write down some of those; Hopefully we will come up with plenty of tips on how to organise testing activities better.

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network.
I promised to start this project way earlier, but I think Hackweek will be a great time to make a start.
The project once was called $BABELFISH, later "Rumsfeld", to honor the creator of the "Unknown unknowns" meme, now it's name is Maxfeld.
The idea is to create a fantastic robotic SUSE pet using cheap materials. It will be moved with you remote control of your TV.
After building the prototype the schemes and Arduino code will be delivered for everyone to try building it at home.
The Kubic Project currently produces a "CaaSP-like" Tumbleweed OS, focused on Kubernetes clusters
However many of the attributes of Kubic (read-only filesystem, transactional updates, containerised services) could be an interesting platform for another use A Chromebook-like Linux Desktop
Since it has been near impossible to collaborate with other musicians at SUSE during the pandemic, I was considering an alternative music project for this Hackweek with any musicians at SUSE who might be willing to join.
