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.

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.

Currently, our existing infrastructure runs mainly SPEC benchmark and is cumbersome from perspective of any further development. I would like to build a replacement that will combine buildbot framework with a custom web project (based on Django framework). The web project will be used both for submitting reports coming from a buildbot slave and for UI which will serve plots and data.

Adding Linux kernel firmware signature support

a project by mcgrof

The Linux kernel already has cryptographic support for signature verification on data. This is used to digitally sign kernel modules at build time, and verify integrity and provenance at load time. Likewise the 802.11 subsystem on the Linux kernel had historically in parallel prior to Linux's own kernel signing facility implemented and integrated support to verify file integrity and provenance for use on the Linux regulatory database. The 802.11 subsystem's components that provide this facility are CRDA and wireless-regdb. CRDA and wireless-regdb technically are split up as two separate trees for development, wireless-regdb helps provide the 802.11 regulatory database while CRDA exists as a udev helper to feed to the Linux kernel a regulatory domain when needed. By using a regulatory database in userspace the Linux kernel is able to get updates for regulatory rules without requiring a rebuild. Linux distributions need the digitally signed regulatory.bin file from wireless-regdb tree and the CRDA binary from the CRDA tree. Linux distributions often combine both into one package, some distributions separate the two. The regulatory database is digitally signed by the wireless-regdb maintainer, and distributions that have have compiled in support for digital signature support on CRDA verify the integrity of the file before feeding a regulatory domain to the Linux kernel. Since the kernel module signing facility was merged upstream on Linux we could replace both CRDA and wireless-regdb distribution mechanism by adding cryptographic file signature verification support on Linux on the firmware_class module which provides the APIs to load firmware, and having the regulatory.bin file merged and updated through the linux-firmware tree. Adding cryptographic signature verification support on the firmware APIs on Linux is the first step to replace CRDA and wireless-regdb's own signature functionality. The second step is to extend the firmware APIs to enable subsystems to customize cryptographic requirements.

Protect disk devices from concurrent use in the libvirt libxl hypervisor driver

a project by jfehlig

The libvirt qemu hypervisor driver has long supported protecting disk devices from concurrent use via libvirt's lock manager interface. Xen used to support the same functionality in the old xend toolstack, but dropped support in the new libxl toolstack. The Xen community decided, rightly so, that this functionality is best provided by a higher-level management tool, e.g. libvirt. This project aims to provide integration between libvirt's lock manager and the libxl hypervisor driver, essentially reintroducing support for disk device protection in the Xen management stack.

I'll port the implementation to kGraft in SLES which should allow to remove immediate patching since it has recently proved to be problematic...

package upstream test suite for 'bind'

an idea by hrommel1

Upstream (ISC) has a rich test suite for their name service daemon 'bind' (aka 'named'). It covers both different configurations as well as different topologies for DNS. Since we perform maintenance updates of this (probably most crucial) part of the Internet every now and then we should invest into making this test suite easy to use both for packagers and QA.

VNC keyboard layout test tool

a project by michalsrb

VNC protocol transfers key symbols (= basically characters), not key codes (= "coordinates" on keyboard). Therefore pressing the same keys may result in sending different commands over VNC depending on the keyboard layout and state of modifiers on the client side. The server however can not directly send the key symbol to the application, it must instead find or create key code that will translate to that symbol and send that. This is hard to implement correctly and there was already several bugs about it.

Try to model check gfp_flags with cbmc

a project by vbabka

Paul McKenney's blog article inspired me to try apply his approach to kernel's memory allocation flags (gfp_flags) and how their combinations affect the decisions and actions taken during page allocation. Recent upstream development around these flags leads me to believe that the complexity is too high for me to reason about them and change the code without unintended changes in semantics. So it might be worth to let the computer do the hard work. If it works out, the approach should allow to verify that changing the code doesn't result in corner cases where some flag combinations don't work as intended. Then we can attempt to e.g. reduce the number of flags and perform other cleanups without fear of breaking everything.

Bootstrap Maven in OBS

a project by a_faerber

Apache Maven is a build tool used by many Java projects, which is incompatible with OBS in that it tries to download binary dependencies from the Internet. Several people have in the past years tried to somehow bootstrap Maven and failed. My new proposed approach is a Maven, patched to obtain packages from a filesystem location, and packages with .jar based -bootstrap.spec variant plus source-based build for properly modeling dependencies in OBS. Unlike the SUSE Manager team's work I am trying to rebuild those .jars from sources. Where necessary I am patching dependency versions to the latest sources/jars packaged.

Set up a PXEboot service for installation in Developlent Networks in the SUSE Nuernberg Office

a project by eeich

<p>PXE boot is a quick and easy way to install any SUSE/openSUSE product on a machine. It doesn't require any boot media and today virtually any system is capable of booting using PXE. </p> <p>The architecture team maintains a tftp server with boot loaders, boot loader configurations and installation images for a variety of architectures and products. Currently in the Nuernberg office this PXE boot service is only available in the network of the architecture team. Since tftp is unicast, the server should be reachable from anywhere in the internal network. What is missing is the information about the address of the tftp server and the image to boot from this server.

Support for WiFi-enabled Canon cameras in gphoto

a project by michal-m

I have a Canon PowerShot S120, which allows for browsing / copying photos over WiFi. There are apps for Android, iOS, and Windows to do that. The protocol uses upnp to discover the camera and the smartphone/computer and them some HTTP-based protocol. I have some code using libupnp for the discovery and a perl script that is capable of transfering one file, but it's far from complete. Plus, I need to refresh my memory, because the last commit is from January :-(. Now, there seems to be some support for such cameras in gphoto already. So the plan is to dive into gphoto and use what I learned about the protocol to fix the gphoto support. If you own some other WiFi-enabled Canon camera supported by the CameraWindow software, let me know.
