Scaleway is a newly opened Cloud based in France (for now) offering ARM based servers. Those are BareMetal SSD cloud servers. They offer a range of operating systems to pick from (Debian, Ubuntu, ArchLinux...) as well as 'application images' (Docker, ownCloud...) but no openSUSE image yet.

KVM for Nvidia Jetson TK1

The Nvidia Jetson TK1 is an SBC with Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC (quad-core Cortex-A15, 32-bit ARMv7). I have openSUSE running on the Jetson TK1, but KVM is currently not usable as the CPUs are not booted in HYP mode. Thierry Reding of Nvidia has some work-in-progress for U-Boot and upstream kernel that I would like to test.

Splitting python-gammu out of Gammu

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.

DRBD refers to block devices designed as a building block to form high availability (HA) clusters.Also possible to combine multiple devices driver for Linux(MD) and the network block device(NBD) to achieve similar functionality. DRBD is done by mirroring a whole block device via an assigned network. DRBD can be understood as network based raid-1. Only two nodes are supported in 8.4.x. For the drbd9(dev in RC phase), multiple nodes can be supported as well. Diving into it and do hacks.

Fix a focus stealing bug in pidgin in openSUSE

a project by moskyto

I have an IRC tab open in pidgin and an adjacent XMPP tab; the latter one displayed with focus. When a new XMPP tab opens in background (with a message incoming), the IRC tab steals the focus but not the display. It brings annoying situations when I sometimes send something accidentally to the IRC instead of XMPP, not noticing that I don't have focus. Wanna hunt and fix this bug.

gocloud - uploader framework for the public cloud

a project by sax2

We from the public cloud dev team regularly upload generic and product images to be available in public cloud systems like Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine or Microsoft Azure. The task of uploading stuff there is not only about having the tools it's also about having the right environment which provides account credentials as well as access to the image when they are built in the buildservice. Also the location from where the upload happens can make a difference in performance. Therefore a framework to combine all this into a more clean process should be developed. The basic parts of the project consists of:

gdb - better disassembly

a project by alnovak

The disassembly in gdb is not ideal. The binding with source code lines is weird (even crash, which does use gdb beneath, does that better), I don't see the jump targets; furthermore, there's a lot more informations hidden in the DWARF2 which may be of some interest - like which code is inlined, or which register/stack address should contain some variable. My goal is to search for a way how to improve that.

If time permits, solving issue #4 would be also really useful.

AppArmor utils: rewrite more rule types into classes

an invention by cboltz

While the python-based AppArmor utils (aa-logprof etc.) are much easier to understand and maintain than the old perl code, there are still some terribly long functions like parseprofiledata() in aa.py that are not too easy to understand. Also, using hasher() (a recursive array) as storage can have some strange side effects. Another problem is that test coverage isn't too good, especially for the bigger functions. I already wrote the CapabilityRule and CapabilityRuleset classes (and also the BaseRule and BaseRuleset classes) some months ago, and changed the code to use those classes. This code is already in upstream bzr.

I think AppArmor is a great tool to add an additional layer of security without much effort. While it is normally easy to create a profile for a simple server program it is much more complex in case of desktop applications. The most vulnerable desktop application is the browser so it would be great to have an AppArmor profile for it.

updating rpms in docker containers

The docker way of updating containers is to build a new image with the updated binaries and files, which creates a security concern. The docker way is not anymore running "zypper update" in the containment but to update the whole image in the image registry (hub docker if we are talking about public registry) and then pull the image update from there, stop the outdated containments and replace them by starting new containments based on the new image.
