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.

openSUSE for Firefly-RK3288

a project by a_faerber

The Firefly-RK3288 is the first SBC with the Rockchip RK3288 SoC, the first available chip with Cortex-A17 cores (32-bit ARMv7). I received such a board just in time for Hackweek Interstellar and will be looking into booting an upstream kernel with openSUSE 13.2/Factory rootfs.

openSUSE for IFC6540

a project by a_faerber

The Inforce Computing IFC6540 is an SBC with Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC (32-bit ARMv7). I had previously brought up openSUSE on the IFC6410. 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.

Charon: A planet-like feed aggregator

an idea by hennevogel

Charon (ˈʃærən) is intended for communities of people, institutions or companies who blog. It aggregates all the feeds of the community into a single feed which all the participants can read to stay informed. It's concept, a proven and popular communication method of the Free and Open Source Software community, and basic functionality is borrowed from the software planet. However, Charon adds a couple of nifty features like administration through your browser, user self-service, categories and personalized feeds.

Upstream test packages to our testing framework

an idea by leylekler

A programming language exploration

a project by KGronlund

I would like to have a programming language that has the performance characteristics of C, but integrates some programming language features that I like from other languages. My first goal would be to start with a language that is very limited in scope and compiles directly to C, and step by step add to it. There are a lot of programming languages, but very few that handles memory as an explicit resource. To be able to explicitly manage memory is a very powerful technique and essential for applications such as high performance video games.

Package VSFTPD with Chroot based on Group Membership

an idea by HaxxonHAx

Although SFTP is the preferred choice for non-public text-based file transfers, some agencies still use FTP. ProFTPD and VSFTPD are among the two top brands of FTP that include a Chrooting system. ProFTPD focuses more on public FTP, such that you can chroot based on a simple path (a la any anonymous FTP). VSFTPD gives the flexibility of chrooting each user into a jail based on the user's home directory. The chrooting system is based on a file in which one specifies the users that you want to chroot. Maintaining this file is key to the chroot system included with VSFTPD. This becomes a problem if one has over 1000 users that need to be maintained (added,removed,changed). This project will provide a chroot system based on a group membership, in which you specify the group that you want chrooted, and when you want a user chrooted, you can easily put them into the group. NOTE: VSFTPD ( has not been maintained since 2012. I've attempted to contact the currently listed developers for taking over and maintaining the project, but have yet to hear a response.

Write a fault tolerant disk copy tool with file system specific plugins

an idea by j_gross

When my laptop disk started to show read errors I searched for a tool capable to save the contents of the disk (multiple systems on it with different file system types). I couldn't find anything which would do a copy of the disk skipping unused areas and tolerating I/O-errors, so I ended up in re-installing all systems after I got a new disk. The ideal solution would be some clever combination of dd_rescue and tar which could be put on a live-CD like gparted and be able to save the disk in question. To save a 500GB disk with 200GB data on it the tool should require only some 200GB of empty disk space, not the full 500GB of the physical disk to be saved.
