DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by teh SUSE documentation team. The official DAPS release is 1.1.7. SUSE internally DAPS 2.0 rc2 has been released. A few issues need to be fixed (mainly closing open bugs and adding missing test cases). The goal of this project is to fix these issues, so DAPS 2.0 can be publicly released.

a project by bigironman
SUSE currently consumes a lot of electricity for keeping servers up an running as well as workstations at the office rooms, air-conditions and so on. The project is about to collect information where all the power is going to and to find sweet spots for saving power (and money).
Add branding to DAPS and the suse-xsl-stylesheets
a project by fsundermeyer
DAPS is the tool used by the SUSE documentation team to generate HTML, ePUB, PDF, ... output of the SUSE manuals from DocBook XML sources. It uses the suse-xsl-stylesheets for this purpose. Currently three different suse-xsl-stylesheet brands exist: SUSE, DAPS, openSUSE. Branding is done by adjusting the xsl-stylesheets directly. It would be desirable to be able to easily change the branding, e.g. via a simple config file in the style of /etc/sysconfig files, since most people cannot hack XSLT. This is also the number one enhancement request we get from DAPS users outside of SUSE.

Learn to speak, read and write German
an invention by cjschroder2
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*.

openSUSE package of Waterfox
a project by lproven
Since Firefox 57, SUSE's default browser no longer supports XUL extensions. This is a problem for those of us who customized Firefox extensively with multiple addons. There are other Firefox forks out there, but Waterfox is based on v56, the most recent version of Firefox before the switch to Quantum -- https://www.waterfoxproject.org/en-US/
