a project by jeff_mahoney

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.

SUSE office in a box

We are 3 Susers in Gran Canaria and we plan to share an office. So we have bought a Cubietruck, a tiny device with minimum power consumption, an ARM processor, a SATA interface and a Gigabit ethernet. The plan is to come-up with a set of recipes to configure such device to:

Add branding to DAPS and the suse-xsl-stylesheets

a project by fsundermeyer

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

a project by a_faerber

While in the past MIPS boards were either low-end PIC32 or found in routers running OpenWRT at most, Imagination themselves have recently released the Creator CI20 board (Ingenic, MIPS32) running Debian. 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.

Shipping everything

a project by cschum

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.
