Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

Scalability improvement for running tiedot database on SMP systems

an invention by guohouzuo

tiedot is a general purpose, document database engine designed for both embeddable usage and running stand-alone DB server, implemented in Go. Despite the effort of partitioning collection data and indexes, a single tiedot process still cannot scale beyond 4 CPU cores due to limitations of both data structure and Go runtime. Last year, an attempt began to partition data across multiple tiedot processes, and use IPC for communication and database logics. Initial benchmarks show promising scalability improvement using the new implementation. So let us complete the new implementation together, to bring the most scalable & embeddable DB engine for Go programs!

Splitting python-gammu out of Gammu

an invention by mcihar

In past it was needed these project to be developed together due to unstable API of Gammu. This is now stable and having python module in the code just makes the things harder. The code should be separated, use standard distutils and have testsuite. In future it should also support Python 3, but that's not the primary goal now. The work has already started:

SMBIOS 3.0 support in dmidecode

an invention by jdelvare

On February 12th, 2015, the DMTF released version 3.0.0 of the System Management BIOS Reference Specification. This update isn't just adding enumerated values to existing structures, as previous updates did. It is also introducing a new entry point format which allows for larger tables and structures. Support for this needs to be added to dmidecode. Additionally, reading the entry point and the table from /dev/mem is no longer possible on all systems, so some work is in progress to offer an alternative interface through sysfs. It would be great to finalize this and release a new version of dmidecode that would support both SMBIOS version 3.0 and this new kernel interface.
