In order to build a community around crowbar, our cloud installer, we need to get this running on openSUSE as well. So let's find some time to move the packaging of crowbar from the ibs to the obs!
In the end, there should be working packages in
For a few years now I have been using mutt for handling my private emails and Thunderbird for work related stuff, mainly because the former is less than stellar at handling mailing lists and the latter is at least bearable for mailing lists. These days my private email address is on a lot of mailing lists, too and this kind of arrangement may yet force me to use Thunderbird for my private email addresses.
We recently changed from IRC to Rocket.chat and now all enjoy the colorful richness of emojis, and in particular animated emoticons such as the :partyparrot: that so much helps productivity.
But there's a latent feeling something still is missing and the answer is simple: audio emojis! We need a feature to send audio emojis to the group and individuals that play on the recipients phones/speakers no matter what. They can be short, they can be looped, same as image emojis they need to catch attention and not allow the user to focus on something else than the chat, e.g. a smart burping to be sent every day after dinner, a looped very funny laughing when somebody announces to have broken the CI system shortly before the release or just some gulping noise which is what you preferably want to do with the :partyparrot:

In crowbar for each barclamp we can change some attributes using comfortable UI fields, but sometimes we need to change some attributes that aren't defined in these fields therefore we have to manipulate a json in a text area to change them.
I propose user-friendly method to set these attributes: Selecting the attribute you want to change and setting the value.

The supportconfig tool is a great resource for troubleshooting common system issues on SLES but its functionalities might not be enough to troubleshoot other issues related to cloud solutions. I would like to invite you to contribute on this project by creating new plugins/tools to complement supportconfig's great power and ease the troubleshooting process for SUSE Openstack Cloud product.
We often struggle to get feedback from our people, in particular if it's supposed to be anonymous. There are external systems on the Internet which are typically commercial, where (free) usage is limited and situation with GDPR isn't clear.
I want us to investigate and find (or found!) an Open Source project that allows to easily collect (internal) surveys.
Hackweek is a place for fun and things and also great things and a lot of fun. Some things don't require a reason - they are fun, that's all to it. Here goes a small competition with a lot of fun to it.

I have been known to talk anybodyI held presentations withinto using odpdown.
That was always a little awkward, since it started off with pip install odpdown, rather than zypper install odpdown. I want to fix this awkwardness and package odpdown properly so it can be installed as a RPM package. I'll also include the auxiliary infrastructure I've added around it over the years (various Makefiles and scripts for generating transcripts from comments) to the package so others can benefit from that stuff, too.
My German reading and speaking skills suck. I've forgotten everything except "Mehr Bier, bitte". A week of intensive immersion ought to enable me to order food as well. And converse with my German team members. Especially when we go out for meals and drinks.
This should have a concrete goal, so I will write a short story in German to demonstrate my amazing new fluency*.
During the last year Askbot, a question and answer oriented internet tool, similar to stack overflow has been tested for internal usage.
The testing went well and it was decided to use the tool in a larger scope.
The Parrot seems to have many fans meanwhile, in particular since we're running Rocket.chat at SUSE. Some may find these emoticons distracting, some find it just cool and I would certainly love to see something like the Partyparrot but as a "SUSE parrot", probably someone manages to make the SUSE Geeko move in a similar fashion, as party_geeko. Finally I'd love to see this uploaded to the cultofthepartyparrot.com under "Party Guests". Because clearly the Geeko insists! :-)
Bonus: do the same with TUX for total ssǝuızɐɹɔ
This is actually stealing an idea from Mark Harvey - see https://etherpad.nue.suse.com/p/SOC-Community-Of-Practice201906_19
Our SUSE OpenStack Clouds can have complex topologies and settings, so a visualization could help greatly when starting to work on an unfamiliar cloud (like in a support call).
I recently bought a Lioncast LK200 RGB keyboard which is a nice piece of hardware and has exactly the look and feel I want. All basic functions work well under Linux. Unfortunately the manufacturer only provides user software to upload/download profiles and control the LEDs for Windows. The device can be configured and operates autonomously from any OS but color setup is a PITA and it's very easy to factory-reset, and lose all config.
I approached them but Lioncast seems neither interested to support native Linux nor to provide protocol specs so one can implement it. I thought to take this as an example to learn about reading and reverse-engineering USB device software.
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.
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.
For events like engineering summit or hackweeks, it would be nice to have a SUSE instance of workadventu.re, and have our own maps, wired with (open)SUSE's jitsi!
I am looking for folks willing to help on those 3 teams:
Primarily to support Hackweek, but also to gain experience for a potential future corporate use, I like to run the open source Jitsi in a SUSE context and within a setup that is close to what SUSE IT is doing.
The service will be built in AWS/EKS within the SUSE E&I space and should be up and running on day 1, but will need love during the 5 Hackweek days to
We've developed a bit of a habit within the Cloud Solutions leadership team to talk about new culinary endeavors after the weekend, telling the others about what fine dishes were created and sharing photos. We discovered that if we combine them to a menu we'll probably have the best international Dinner in the world but since we're all far away from each other we need to share the recipes to make it work.
We're likely not the only ones doing that, so why not start a SUSE cookbook in a open source developer fashion, in a git repository and jointly feed - pardon - fill it with recipes for food the SUSE family likes.
