Dawnscanner was a ruby code security static analyzer I created in 2013 and led until a couple of years ago. Unfortunately in my last two jobs, my focus was less on ruby code, so the project lost some traction.
SUSE IT needs help from fellow geekos with release engineering skills to define the requirements, process, infrastructure, and tools for building an openSUSE-based distribution bundled with SUSE IT-supported application stack. The resulting OS build will be offered as a standard distribution for new SUSE employees in addition to the existing Operating System library.
This first part of this project will build a moisture sensor using an ESP32 board and circuit python. I am hoping to implement a notification method using SMS or Email. Additionally, future plans include adding a Web based interface to view historical data as well as optionally adding some mini pumps that will water the plants once a specified moisture level (very little detected) has been reached.
SUSE dissolved an old warehouse, containing lots and lots of boxes with old SUSE / SuSE / S.u.S.E software. All of those boxes were originally going to be dumped in March 2021, which could be prevented.
Crev  is a collaborative code audit idea. Since it's common that more security engineers can work on the same projects, or there can be a different person auditing a piece of code after some time, there is the need to keep track of the code audit notes in a non-repudiable way.
I have three hundred and eighty four openSUSE 12.1 DVDs. Given 12.1 went end of life almost ten years ago, it seems likely these DVDs are useless. Rather than toss them out I've decided to try to turn them into some form of art.
Yes, those VGA video cards. The goal of this project is to implement a DRM graphics driver for such devices. While actual hardware is hard to obtain or even run today, qemu emulates VGA output.
VGA has a number of limitations, which make this project interesting.
Often when we test maintenance updates or when we decide to push an update for a package we want to know what that change may cause. Right now it is really difficult to figure out what package depends on a given package.
Currently a key rotation via fdectl regenerate-key is used to revoke all released tpm2 sealed keys. However the procedure can be a bit risky as the result to change key slots. Using tpm2 policynv may provide better approach in this regard given a counter or timestamp can be matched to validate tpm keys before using it.
I am one of founders of openSUSE.Asia summit and actively got involved in Open Source Community, coincidentally I was given a book named "Open Source Culture in China" by the writer Xiaoqing Fan, so I plan to read this book and get to know what is situation of open source in China combining what I have seen and heard, then will think about what can I contribute more to promote open source.
Valgrind currently lacks support for 80-bit extended precision floating point arithmetic on x86_64 (long double). The current implementation uses 64-bit arithmetic instead, which means that programs running on x86_64 with "long double" give different results when running under Valgrind and natively. People were asking for support for this since like forever, but to date nobody went on implementing it. It's a project for a year, unless somebody has time to work on it full time, but one has to start somewhere. :-)
Andúril is an open-source firmware for LED flashlights, which runs on several versions of ATtiny chip. It provides advanced functionality like configurable modes, brightness ramping, safety lockout, etc. via a UI controlled by a single button.
QEMU can serve host files using the 9P2000 protocol. Xen can serve host files using the 9P2000 protocol. Even WSL2 can serve files using the 9P2000 protocol. This makes it a perfect choice to make your kernel under development in your host environment available to your testing VM, right? Well, almost. GRUB2 cannot boot from a Plan9 filesystem share.
Over the years, our bugzilla database has grown up in size, becoming a very valuable source of truth for most support and development cases; still searching for specific items is quite tricky and the results do not always match the expectations.
