Replace the SUSE Manager client stack with an existing configuration management software

a project by kwk

Intro

The SUSE Manager client stack is rather simple, in regular intervals it asks the SUSE Manager Server for scheduled actions and executes them.

Automate zypp translations

an idea by mlandres

pxe boot once

an idea by osynge

pxe + autoyast is awesome but when multiple people share a pxe server is a pain. I understand foreman / chef provide a solution for this, but they are linked to puppet / chef. What I want is a simple modular tool to make life easy. pxe boot would allows you to send a simple http request and the next reboot of the server / VM will boot a non interactive fresh install.

kvmctx - a tool similar to xenctx, but for KVM

a project by bfrogers

I just learned about xenctx, which is used to help debug Xen issues. I am wondering if it would be easily ported to KVM. If not, perhaps at least creating the equivalent for KVM may be useful for handling problems with KVM guests.

Build a sharable local virtualization testing environment

a project by cyliu

Currently whenever there is a test, we need to find or build environment on our own machine or borrow some one else's machine temparorily. I hope we can collect all testing machines in our local team and build a sharable testing environment. Every one can reserve and use the machine, add machine, check machine info to find proper one (hardware and software) for test, share vm images, share other testing related resources, etc.

Learn SELinux CIL

CalDAV/CardDAV client in PHP

a project by holgisms

CalDAV [1] and CardDAV [2] are client/server protocols designed to allow users to access and share calendar and contact data on a server. There are many CalDAV and CardDAV clients around, e.a. Thunderbird/Lightning and also free CalDAV and CardDAV servers like Baïkal. With that project I want to create a client in PHP to be able to create and modify data in calendars and addressbooks from websites.

Secure zero-trust P2P barter protocol

an idea by KGronlund

The use of the bitcoin testnet for trading cards for Hackweek got me thinking about a protocol more adapted for the tit-for-tat trade of virtual goods: the transaction only completed once both sides have contributed their share to the transaction. It would need some way for each side to verify that the goods traded are those agreed on. It would be an interesting problem to work on (or find some existing solution).

arbs - Mirror an ArchLinux package repository in a Build Service

a project by rneuhauser

> [arbs] is a tool for keeping an OBS project in sync with an ArchLinux package repository. More specifically, I use it to sync [home:roman-neuhauser:arch-community][h:rn:ac] with [community.git][c.git], a mirror of the actual svn repository underlying community. arbs already exists but has many rough edges. the goal of this hackweek project is to make it resilient in the various failure scenarios so it can be used in a truly unattended fashion.

Win32 non-blocking IO for qemu-ga

Add test support to rpmbuild (and build service)

Add test directives to the spec file which would instruct rpmbuild to run regression and unit tests for the package. rpmbuild should probably also get an option to run these tests. The interface could be exposed in the build service with the possibility to consider a package not passing its tests as failed to build.

fix performance problem in soundkonverter

a project by wiederda

I'm using soundkonverter a lot (my whole music collection is flac, but for the car or my children I prefer mp3) and it is working fine. However when doing mass conversions, building the list of files to convert can take ages. It seems the filelist is being re-created for every title added. Debug it and try to fix it in order to speed up this operation.

package inputlirc (or add it to existing lirc package)

inputlirc is superior to previous lirc input daemon as it can monitor multiple input sources at the same time. This is needed for some new remote controls that appear as two devices, providing both virtual keypresses as well as mouse clicks. Since I'm too lazy to always build the package manually, I would like to have it available for OpenSUSE.

The GRUB menu should contains normal installation option and entry which is able to boot SLES 12 from hard disk.

A week before Hackweek Interstellar I got the IFC6540 to boot on serial console using the upstream-based Linaro integration branch, up to searching for the rootfs. Since USB and SATA support were still missing, my goal will be to prepare a MicroSD based rootfs to complete the bringup.

SeaMonkey extension (for forgetting passwords)

a project by pcerny

SeaMonkey is the successor of the Mozilla Suite. The mail client allows connections over POPv3 and IMAPv4. In some cases one wants to leave the program running for longer periods of time, but once the mail client has password for a mail server it just stays connected. In case of "keep everything on server" profiles this means that the mail may stay accessible even when the machine is left unattended (which it often is). The purpose of the extension is to enable requesting the client to forget mail server passwords, so that the mail is no longer accessible without entering it again. http://www.seamonkey-project.org/
