mysql-packaging git repo enhancement

a project by kstreitova

This Hackweek I would like to finish enhancing of the mysql-packaging git repository [1]. This improvement mainly consists of scripts for a kind of simple continuous integration and git hooks to enforce a few policies for our project. If there is a time I will also take a look at the mysql package itself and check if there is anything to improve. [1] https://github.com/openSUSE/mysql-packaging

Research Testing Tools for GFX Stack & how they can be used in openQA

a project by eeich

<p>There are numerous testing tools for the GFX stack available - the oldes being the xtest suite. At the same time, we are still lacking automated test environments for the funktionalities of DRM, Mesa and X. Ideally the tests should be performed automatically and unattended and the results should be compared to previous runs to detect regressions.</p> <p>Research what tools exist to date and how they can be employed.</p>

Tahoe-LAFS on OpenSUSE

a project by gsanso

Tahoe-LAFS is an open-source decentralized cloud storage system. It distributes your data across multiple servers. Even if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire file store continues to function correctly, preserving your privacy and security. It provides a provider-independent security where the storage provider does not have access to the unencrypted data because all data is encrypted, erasure-coded, and hashed before leaving the client's machine thus preserving confidentiality, availability, and integrity of the data.

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an emerging Internet standard for accessing directory information, and allowing LDAP-enabled applications to access multiple directories. LDAP v3 supports features such as secure connections, entry management, schema management, and LDAP controls and extensions for expanding LDAP's functionality. LDAP Libraries for 'D' enables you to write applications that access, manage, and update information stored in any LDAP-aware directories, using D language (http://dlang.org/).

Capturing FC frames with wireshark

a project by ptesarik

AFAIK, wireshark is the best Linux tool for analyzing network traffic. Primarily intended for Ethernet networks, there is now also support for very different protocols (e.g. USB). Sadly, there is no support for fibre channel, most likely because there is even no infrastructure in the kernel. I doubt I could write the complete stack within just one week. The result should be a clear plan of what needs to be done on each level and a proof-of-concept implementation of at least some parts.

Add PIDs cgroup support to runC and Docker

Currently, dealing with forkbombs and similar issues with Docker and runC is not very nice (you have to set a global limit for all Docker processes or you have to limit kernel memory which isn't very practical). I'm going to work on getting some [patches][2] merged into runC and Docker to enable PIDs support for Docker.

Make Intel baytrail based device(s) work better with openSUSE

a project by mkubecek

Recently I became a (not very proud) owner of Acer Aspire Switch 10E, a small notebook/tablet convertible based on Intel baytrail platform. Replacing preinstalled (32-bit!) Windows 8.1 with (64-bit) openSUSE proved more challenging than expected, mostly because the device is haunted by a 32-bit UEFI so that it took me a week to make it boot without an external USB flash disk. Even today, a lot of issues persist. As I do not want to waste a (partially) good hardware, I would like to make it as usable as possible. This is much less selfish than it sounds as there are many other devices based on Intel baytrail platform so that the effort is going to help their owners as well (if successful, that is).

Scout a replacement for MTUI

[MTUI][MTUI] is a tool used by QA-Maintenance in testing maintenance updates. Saddled with a host of questionable choices for its interfaces and implementation, it includes a number of difficult-to-fix bugs and hostility toward change. While not the first choice for me, the time's come to scout out a different approach. Welcome SMRT. SMRT will be an alternative to MTUI, and will eventually supercede it.
