New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

Jangouts development workshop

a project by ancorgs

We are right now testing a patch to Janus that will hopefully give us the stability we were missing in As a consequence, it's reasonable to expect a wider usage of Jangouts inside the company. Thus, I want to share maintainership of Jangouts as much as possible. The more developers know how to fix errors and implement features, the better. We already have a roadmap for the next two versions (0.4.0 and 0.5.0) but I don't want to spend my whole hackweek implementing those features in isolation. I would rather follow a workshop approach to welcome new contributors within the company (or outside, of course), so we get the stuff done and fix the single point of failure for the same price.

DAPS is the tool used by the SUSE documentation team to generate HTML, ePUB, PDF, ... output of the SUSE manuals from DocBook XML sources. It uses the suse-xsl-stylesheets for this purpose. Currently three different suse-xsl-stylesheet brands exist: SUSE, DAPS, openSUSE. Branding is done by adjusting the xsl-stylesheets directly. It would be desirable to be able to easily change the branding, e.g. via a simple config file in the style of /etc/sysconfig files, since most people cannot hack XSLT. This is also the number one enhancement request we get from DAPS users outside of SUSE.

Bootstrap openSUSE for MIPS

And the Shield Pro (previously iGuardian) kickstarter project (Octeon-III, MIPS64) promises to become a playground for testing KVM hardware virtualization. Porting openSUSE to MIPS will involve setting up an OBS instance linked to Factory (update: done) and cross-compiling a set of packages for an initial bootstrap (update: in progress). Maybe this can be scripted to some degree, as there will be some overlap with the ARM ILP32 port project.

Writing code is wonderful, but it gets its real value, when it's released and shipped to the world. You know the mantra: "Release early, release often". Releasing code is not hard, but it involves a lot of details, and you want to get them right, because a release is this public statement "Hey, it's done, it works, you can use it." and you can't take a release back, once it's out there. To help with releases there are tons of release scripts which try to automate things. But they usually are quite fragile in case something goes wrong and a pain to test and maintain.

Improve futex coverage in trinity

Instead of re-writing any testing infrastructure, make use of the trinity system call fuzzing tool. While trinity does apply fuzzing to futexes, it does so with very limited knowledge, using only generic callbacks to the different steps involved. As such the main goal is extending testing coverage and making it more ad-hoc.

Docker: Image Rebasing

an invention by cyphar

git rebase is a very useful construct in source control management, as it allows you to re-apply your changes atop a different branch of the same repository. While this concept transitions perfectly to container management (updating a container could be as easy as a docker rebase), and the Docker client is inspired by the git semantics, Docker has no such feature (in fact, Solomon Hykes used rebase and merge as examples of things "that we don't want"). Currently, zypper-docker works by applying an updated layer on top of an existing image. While this does work quite well, it separates the process of updating the base image and updating all of your derivative images (you need to re-download new packages for each derivative image). So, this project will be working on implementing something like git rebase for Docker images. There are several issues with this, mainly involving the fact that we are rebasing binaries and not source code, so merge conflicts will probably be quite messy. But it should be possible to implement some form of simple rebase method (which will essentially fall back to docker build in the worst case, which is what you were going to run anyway). By maximising the reuse of the existing image layers, it should be possible to reduce build times quite significantly.

Start with fault tolerant Xen server prototype

a project by j_gross

A normal Xen server today has many single points of failure. Those can be reduced by disaggregating Dom0 into multiple domains (xenstore, driver domains, admin domain). Following this path to it's logical end will lead to a setup where the running domUs won't be depending on Dom0 any more, so Dom0 itself can be made restartable. This project aims at beginning with a prototype by setting up a configuration with a xenstore domain and a driver domain for networking. This will allow running a pv-domU with network resources only (nfs or iscsi root file system) no longer needing Dom0 to run.

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.

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.

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).
