Hack salt-toaster to use systemd-nspawn instead of docker

RankWell: Markov Chain Generation of Yelp Restaurant Reviews

a project by ericp

Ever left a restaurant wanting to write a review, but thinking it wasn't worth the trouble to tap out all those words on your phone -- you just want to give the place your n stars and provide a few words of praise or condemnation? If only you could press a button to generate a plausible review. If this project happens, you will. We'll use the Yelp API to grab as many reviews of certain types of restaurants as the terms of service allow (I assume "Use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application, or other automated device, process or means to access, retrieve, scrape, or index any portion of the Site or any Site Content;" doesn't apply to API users -- otherwise it wouldn't be much of an API).

Securing a CMS by using a hidden CMS and exporting static html to a web server

a project by johannes_p

Small non profit organisations or activist groups need a Web presence that is easy to maintain by several authors. When using a CMS they do not have the resources to secure the CMS from the various possible attacs most CMSes are notorious for. Defacement or placing malicious content can damage the reputation of such non profit organisations. The solution would be to combine an of the shelf CMS with a static web server that is hosted on a different IP address. The authors would access the CMS through a kind of remote access gateway e.g. openvpn) where access can be well secured with certificates or even hardware tokens.

Setting up a complete SUSE "Software Defined Infrastructure" stack from bare metal with Salt and friends

an idea by joachimwerner

In the last couple of years we've made a lot of progress in the SUSE Manager team when it comes to being able to do fully automated testing. We started with a Vagrant-based setup ("Suminator") and are currently using Silvio Moioli's "Sumaform" (https://github.com/moio/sumaform), which is based on Terraform. But the current setup only brings up a "virgin" SUSE Manager with a number of clients and optionally runs the test suite.

You can also use it along with grub2-reboot to remotely re-image a machine. The project has been started here: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:blarson:grub-ipxe It needs to be tested, and polished before trying to include it into opensuse.

Make git-sort faster

a project by benjamin_poirier

git-sort is a a tool that reads a list of git commits and sorts them so that the partial ordering of parent-child relationships is respected. It performs this as a stable sort; it preserves the input order of commits that are on parallel development branches. This tool is useful when backporting a large number of commits so that the commits may be cherry-picked in an order such that no child commit appears before any of its ancestors. The current implementation of git-sort is a proof of concept that uses git merge-base --is-ancestor. Having a more efficient version would ease the handling of large input lists.

orca: build OCI images from Dockerfiles

a project by cyphar

Currently the main complaint people have about OCI tooling is the lack of a transition from Docker to OCI. With umoci you have a lot of low-level image configuration abilities, and skopeo and runC cover the other major parts of the picture, but you need something to tie them together. I'm not going to be implementing YAWAR (Yet Another Wrapper Around Runc). It's just going to be a single script that can take a Dockerfile and create an OCI image that is basically the same as the Docker image you would get -- with the big difference being that you didn't need Docker and everything used the OCI. The other cool benefit of this is that you could build images without privileges (since rootless containers now exist in runC and in umoci).

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.

SSH (Suse Social Hack) game

a project by nmoudra

This is a project to create a "larp" game for SUSE employees (or anyone geeky enough to play this) which will be based on computer related knowledge. The core of the game is to search for other people and clues for solving the main goal by "connecting" or "hacking" according to given HW and SW roles. E.g. a person will play router, another one will play PC and they will need to find a person playing TCP/IP protocol to communicate and eventually create a working setup to solve the goal. They they need to work as a group and solve riddles/ciphers which will let them go further. There are more game mechanics i have in mind, but don't want to spoil all of them now :)

Refresh connect.opensuse.org

a project by lrupp

Connect is the "social network" of the openSUSE community. While this might not sound so important, the problem is that the tool is used for membership management and all the other "administrative" stuff for the openSUSE community, which makes it a very important tool. The bad news is that - since years(!) - there is no-one actively maintaining the application. While the openSUSE Heroes keep the basic infrastructure up and running, they are not responsible for the application itself. Following the standard policy for such services, this would mean that connect has to be shut down immediately. But the openSUSE board heavily depends on this tool and asks every time when it comes to "shut it down" - to not do it.

linux antivirus engine

http://www.ranum.com/security/computer_security/editorials/dumb/ explained in detail that filtering badness is a dumb idea, so if we wanted to build a linux antivirus software, we would need a whitelist of programs that would be allowed to execute. We can easily use the rpm database for that. But what is missing, is a mechanism through that the kernel would check before executing $binary if it is OK to run it.

Packages added by the dependency solver in order to resolve a user's request, are marked as having been automatically installed.

Automatically installed packages may turn out to be useful, and you may want to exclude them from any automatic cleanup. And vice versa.
