unified communication setup (integrating IRC)

a project by okurz


The one mobile messaging service that shall not be named destroyed the world of "unified communication" by constructing a walled garden in recent years although there was a bright outlook with XMPP/jabber in before bundling all communication by providing an open standard and especially transports. I would like to revisit the state in 2017 and combine my text chat based communication needs from different end devices, namely my work notebook and my private smartphone.

Better Boot Screens with BPAEngine (Plymouth)

a project by mdeniz

This project is about hacking and pushing further an engine called BPAEngine written in plymouth that enable people to develop better boot screens without much effort. Having those new boot screens in our distributions would be great. Plymouth is a "basic" scripting language for developing boot screens (See some Fedora examples running). Our openSUSE distributions have their own plymouth themes packaged on the branding-openSUSE package. And in my opinion they are very basic..., just a dot moving in 3 positions with the nice background and a logo.

Try implementing OMEMO encryption for Empathy

a project by tonghuix

It looks like OTR will never be implemented for Empathy. But two years after Snowden end-to-end encryption is really a basic requirement for every secure chat program. A few weeks ago I read about a promising protocol called OMEMO which seems to overcome all shortcomings of OTR and GnuPG with respect to instant messaging. This would be a option for Empathy to finally support end-to-end encryption.

Local voice recognition for home automation

a project by jenspinney

There are several popular ways of controlling home automation with voice today. Amazon Echo and Google Home both allow users to control lights, speakers, etc. with a simple voice command. For this project, I want to replicate some of the simple voice commands supported by projects like those, but in a way that does all processing from within the local network, and doesn't upload any voice clips to a server outside the home. There's something that feels a little uncomfortable about Amazon or Google having the ability to listen in on all conversations, so I'm trying to eliminate that while still being able to turn my lights on or off by voice.

More ruby in YaST

a project by jreidinger

In general plan for YaST is to use ruby only in future. So goal of this project is to move it forward and replace more parts with ruby. Current ideas is to replace binary y2base with ruby script, which allows easier integration with ruby tools and more important it solve some issues with embedding ruby, as it will be then first citizen.
