Automate to save time for hacking
a project by locilka
Yast team has a great experience in automating tasks that can be done by machines in order to save time that can be used better. We usually use Jenkins for running these jobs.
Why to use automation?
LFS from opensuse
a project by jerrytang
Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own customized Linux system entirely from source. Build the customized linux step-by-step is good way to understand linux system deeply. (Include cross compile TEC which I have interest )

Take a stroll in dependency hell
a project by jgleissner
While packaging node.js modules, which often depend on specific versions of other node.js modules, sometimes many of them, you easily end up in dependency hell, and maintaining an OBS project with a few hundred of those modules can be a tedious task. So the idea for this project is to familiarise myself with how exactly dependencies are managed on package and repository level, check out what tools exist to drill into dependency data, and hack something that helps keeping OBS repositories in a dependency consistent state.
Biofeedback / Neuroscanner / Dreamanalyser
an idea by chuller
This project is based on some hack of a mind flex toy containing a so called "neurosky eeg" chip. Having a sensor connected to your skull this system can meassure several waves emitting from the brain, also called brainwaves. The Idea is to combine this system with some camera based monitoring system that will watch a test subject while sleeping and recording the corresponding brainwaves for later analysis of brainactivity and body movement. Other use cases do exist, this was the only one i could come up with that involves sleeping in the office ;)
Packages for vagrant
an idea by tboerger
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.

Management solution for openSUSE based on Salt-stack
an idea by dmacvicar
Saltstack is the only configuration management solution that does not look like a ball of hair. https://github.com/dmacvicar/playground/tree/minimanager-reactjs/python/minimanager is a prototype of a Spacewalk-like console using Spacewalk as the server and client engine.
