Add support for Amazon S3 cloud backed block devices to istgt / Elasto

an idea by dmdiss

Elasto is a cloud library and client utility for managing and manipulating cloud storage objects via REST. Functionality was recently added to istgt so that it can expose an Azure storage blob for access via iSCSI, it does so using Elasto's file API.

Library.suse.de update/replacement

an idea by jnweiger

Scanning books stopped 6 years ago. We need volunteers to take the scanner and walk through the offices. This is a good learning opportunity for trainees. The software could also be updated. If anybody looks for a replacement with a more mature opensource solution, Lars suggests KOHA which he already packaged in obs.

error DB

an idea by cyberiad

Create a database of common and not so common error messages, warnings, etc. to provide references to bugzilla, TIDs, wikis, etc. When working in support you often run into issues that have unspecific or misleading error message. Google might be helpful, but especially with kernel dumps, longer traces, complex issues this doesn't help.

openQA framework studying and improvement.

an idea by bchou

openQA is a set of utilities designed to test operative systems in an fully automated way. I would like to get started from the Tutorial and get familiar the whole process (openQA of webUI, auto-inst test modules, specific cases writing ) and detail framework. It would be accelerating the test cases creation in the future.

libvirt TCK

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt TCK provides a framework for performing testing of the integration between libvirt drivers, the underlying virt hypervisor technology, related operating system services and system configuration. The idea (and name) is motivated by the Java TCK. Currently the libvirt TCK is not fully packaged for SUSE and the test suite itself contains a lot of Redhat-isms. Mike Latimer and Jim Fehlig will work on properly packaging libvirt TCK (it has a LOT of perl dependencies) and patching it to work better with SUSE virtualization hosts and SUSE guest operating systems. It has traditionally focused on the KVM hypervisor, so there might be some progress made to make it work better with Xen too.

I have started many months ago a project named geozip (https://github.com/tbpro/geozip) and i would like to finalize it. I want to parse openstreetmap files and generate polygon geo coordinates for zip codes. After processing it should be exported to multiple file formats to get them imported into databases for various projects.

Podcast Studio

a project by KGronlund

I've been running a podcast together with two friends for over a year now. We have a recording and mixing process going, but unfortunately it involves using non-free operating systems and software all the way through. It is probably going to be hard to get away from using the things we use for the actual recording part for a while, but one thing I feel should be perfectly doable in openSUSE is the mastering bit. In theory, Audacity could work for this, but it is old and clunky and doesn't do real-time filtering, making it annoying to use.

Enable >256 vcpus for KVM guests

a project by bfrogers

Although there isn't much demand right now, it won't be long before >256 vcpus in a KVM guest will be desired. Currently, due to 8 bit apic ids only being used the limit is 256. Implement the x2apic infrastructure that will allow QEMU + KVM to break the 256 vcpu barrier.

YaST module for IRST

a project by mlin7442

Intel Rapid Start Technology(IRST) is a firmware mechanism enables your system to get up and running faster from sleep, saving time and power consumption, it will cause the system to wake up from S3 and suspend to S4(with SSD)[1]. Currently kernel 3.11 already support it[2], however there haven't a graphic tool to control its wakeup event and timeout, like as similar tool on Windows[3]. This Hackweek I'll create a YaST module to handle those parameters. [1] http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/26022.html

Simple stretchable storage cloud

an idea by hreinecke

A project idea I've been carrying around for several years now. Based upon the 'referrals' concept from SPC-4 it should be rather easy to build up large volumes spread over several nodes. I'm thinking of an iSCSI target here, which gets updated via a corosync engine with any volume updates from the cluster.

OpenStack Tempest Dashboard

an idea by jctmichel

Tempest is a functional test suite used for OpenStack. It would normally run in the order of 800 tests over the period of 2 hours on a newly installed OpenStack infrastructure. Tempest is written in Python and uses nosetests as the basis of its test framework. There is a large amount of verbose that is streamed to the log file and there is also considerable ambiguity in the overall success rate.

Add standardized REST interface to Hamsta

a project by pkacer

Hamsta currently lacks a standardized network interface that would allow other systems accessing its capabilities. There is a custom network interface with text-parsing based protocol that is poorly documented and needs to be implemented on the client side to be usable. This interface does not use any standardized way of communication or library. This project suggests to add a standardized web service interface (let us call it API) to Hamsta. Expected attributes are following.

salien - convert deb/pkgbuild/... into .spec

an idea by bmwiedemann

There is the alien program to convert binary packages between various formats, but it would be even nicer to be able to take a debian or archlinux build spec and convert it into an rpm .spec file. Apart from the syntax conversion, this will need some mapping for package names, so that BuildRequires and Requires match the target.

Optimize packing of objects required for migration to new container

a project by vuntz

Moving objects to a new container is a problem everyone in R&D has faced at least once in his life. It requires a very advanced algorithm to pack the many different objects (which are generally heterogeneous, with different uses, types, weights and sizes), before the packs can then be transferred to the new container, generally through a dedicated bus. We can identify some usual cases: * In the worst case, the new container can be smaller than the old one, and a garbage collector is generally used to help find a solution that satisfies the problem (a SAT solver can be used to determine which objects should be destroyed).

openSUSE & SLE support for Puppet modules located at the Forge

That way we can re-use external / third-party modules from forge.puppetlabs.com, ideally without touching them at all. He names that "the Lego approach". Full article.

ALSA Pure Digital Power Amplifier

Rouslan does some dithering and noise shaping, but I'm convinced that proper interpolation would sound better. The ATtiny is too slow to do even cubic interpolation so I'll move that into the host.

Booting to btrfs snapshots with grub2

a project by michael-chang

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.
