Package all available Qt-based libraries

an idea by cschum

There are many 3rd party libraries based on Qt. Inqlude collects them all. The goal of this project is to package them all, ideally automatically from the meta data provided by Inqlude. The build service provides all the tools we need for that and would even make it possible to provide packages for a multitude of Linux platforms and maybe even Windows. Interesting challenges ahead...

openQA webVTT subtitles

This could make debugging easier and might be instructive to users, too.

Multiqueue ramdisk

a project by hreinecke

There is a ramdisk block device (brd), and there is a null multiqueue device (nullblk). The one can do I/O, but doesn't use multiqueue, and the other does multiqueue but cannot do I/O. So the idea is to have a new multiqueue ramdisk block device (ramblk?), which can do both. Would be most useful for testing multiqueue.

Tool to update images in an OpenStack Cloud

Currently there is an internal OpenStack instance ( Most of the images there are outdated so it's common that everybody just uploads a new image. Would be nice to have a tool which updates at least the most common images (SLE11&12, openSUSE, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora) automatically once a day. So ater spawning a new VM, there would be no need to first update (and maybe reboot) the machine or upload a new image before you can start to work.

The future of systems management

a project by j_renner

A new web UI for saltstack, possibly the future of systems management. The official salt UI halite is now officially retired and saltpad is still very young and in alpha state. In addition to the creation of a new frontend to salt, the goal could be to work towards a full replacement for existing systems management solutions like spacewalk, including the migration (minionification) of systems from there.

Thanks to my subtle desire to recover some long lost web programming skills I want to test how will Rust do as a, albeit very limited, web framework.

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!

The current orchestration layer of Crowbar is unfortunately way too simple and needs some serious rework if we want to take Crowbar to the next step.

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.

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.

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

<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.

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.
