Linux driver for the AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310)

a project by patrikjakobsson

The AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310) is a cheap HDMI (with pass-through) to USB 2.0 capture card. The card only supports compressed output (afaik) which makes it slightly less useful but still very valuable when debugging graphical issues. The plan is to hook a few of these up to my test machines so I can stream the output to my workstation and integrate with the rest of my test setup. So far I've discovered that the card needs to be loaded with two firmwares. One for audio and one for video. Hopefully this will turn into a standard UVC device once the initial bootstrap is done fingers crossed. Specifications (From AverMedia webside):

an idea by doliveira

SES-IDM-CONF is a tool to help configuring SES cluster so nodes and users can be all stored into an LDAP server and the individual principals created in KRB5. Proper certs created, users and groups migrated and then setup authentication (using SSSD, LDAP, KRB5, [some of it based on how 'authconfig' works]). This tool is being mainly created due to the need to have SES users/nodes to start authenticating through LDAP/KRB5, where setting up the environment can be time consuming and troublesome.

Learn rtags (vim-rtags) how to properly do code completion based on LLVM API

an idea by marxin

Both YouCompleteMe and rtags are powerful tools that provide useful IDE features to both VIM and Emacs editors. Both use llvm front-end in order to provide code completion hints. Suggestion based on YCM are fine, however I believe that rtags is better tool because it has a concept of project and provides for instance GoToDefinition command, one that's not supported by YCM. Goal of the project is to provide better code completion hints for rtags, where one has to filter out and sort results given by the FE. Apart from that, calling code completion for 'myvar.myf^', LLVM prefer to be given 'my_var.^', as it understands one expects member function and variables.

yast2-storage-ng as a libstorage-ng wrapper. POC

a project by ancorgs

The goal of this project is to write a proof of concept of a new philosophy for yast2-storage-ng. Instead of just extending the API offered by libstorage-ng, the idea is wrap libstorage-ng so the Ruby code using yast2-storage-ng does not have direct visibility (unless explicitly desired) on the libstorage-ng classes and methods. If you don't know what all that means, keep reading.

yast2-journal as the new default YaST log viewer

an idea by ancorgs

Some time ago the YaST team started to get bug reports about the "System Log" option displaying no content. By default this component opens /var/log/messages and after the switch to systemd that file is not longer used by default. Thus, we created the yast2-journal module to allow viewing of the systemd journal (journald). But the new module did not substitute the old viewer because the old one is still useful to inspect plain text files like /var/log/boot.log and because is still called from other YaST modules. The current situation is confusing. In the YaST main screen we have now "System Log" and "Systemd Journal". Is not unlikely that in some other places we only have a reference to the old one. It's not clear when to use which one. That has been reported several times, like in bug#948729.

Electron apps are based on web technologies, and built from the ground up to be platform-agnostic. The electron framework is open source, and most of the apps are as well, but they are typically distributed (for Linux) as either a tarball or via npm.

While I understand that you can add these here in the Markdown, I'd like a way that's also programmatically accessible. I'd also like to be able to obfuscate email address in a way that tends to discourage or protect from spammers.

kCFI Release

a project by jmoreira

kCFI is a tool that enables the compilation of commodity Operating Systems with Control-Flow Integrity protection. kCFI first prototype was developed/implemented during a PhD program held in the University of Campinas, in Brazil. Although fully functional, the tool remains in a very experimental shape, needing to be refactored prior to being released. As kCFI consists in multiple tools, which include compiler plugins, kernel patches and binary analyzers, its deployment is considerably complex. Once code refactoring is finished, the next step consists in setting up proper repositories for the tool and for each submodule, along with scripts and documentation to enable easy configuration and compilation on new environments.

Make GCC IPA-SRA really IPA

a project by jamborm

GCC's IPA-SRA pass is run as a regular pass, not as an IPA pass. While this has simplified its implementation quite a bit, it's been creating pass-ordering issues for years now. So, let me try again to make it a real IPA pass, possibly dropping the capability to turn by-reference parameters to by-value ones, but definitely giving it the ability to work on strongly connected components of the call graph. And ending the pass-ordering issues.

Btrfs quotas improvements

The problem with quotas is that the feature itself isn't yet mature. At least until very recently, and possibly still, quotas couldn't be depended upon to work correctly (various not entirely uncommon corner-cases would trigger negative numbers, etc), and even when they do work correctly, they simply don't scale well in combination with balance, check, etc -- that 10X difference isn't uncommon. Understanding the code in Btrfs quotas, give a analysis & improvement.
