Play with ionic framework

a project by mschnitzer

There is a super cool framework for mobile phone apps available: ionic (http://ionicframework.com/) ionic allows you to write apps in HTML, (Angular) JavaScript, and TypeScript for any mobile phone platforms: iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. You just need to know how to use HTML and JavaScript and you can start writing an app and convert it to any mobile phone platform.

OCI Image Distribution with RPMs

a project by cyphar

Currently the Open Container Initiative doesn't specify a distribution protocol or system, and the current "standard" format is the Docker registry protocol. Aside from technical reservations with Docker registry, it is also not an OCI-compliant system and will require a lot of work to integrate it into all of the openSUSE/SUSE tooling. So, a very insane idea I came up with is to convert OCI images to RPMs and then distribute them as simple RPMs. The idea would be to use capabilities (Provides: oci(...)) to implement the different names of images and then also the dependency graph of blobs (which would naturally be de-duplicated).

Use linear programming for the partitioning proposal

an idea by ancorgs

The YaST team is rewriting yast2-storage. That includes new shiny code for the storage proposal during installation. It calculates what partitions and/or volumes need to be created to allocate the system and finds the best way to create those partitions in the existing free spaces. The second part becomes more complicated than it looks as soon as you start considering the restrictions imposed by each volumes and by the technology (primary vs logical partitions, for example). Right now, the problem is solved by brute force. All the possible distributions of partitions and LVM physical volumes are considered and the best one (according to several simple criteria) is chosen.

Unfortunately, the USB support needs some non-standard timings so there is quite a bit of integration and debugging needed.

Do something useful with the TPM

an idea by mwilck

Almost all our laptops, and many servers, feature a TPM today. The TPM doesn't have the best reputation in the community because it could be used to lock down platforms or do nasty things with DRM. Under normal conditions on PCs, the TPM is controlled by the system owner and could actually be useful for almost anything involving crypto. Unfortunately the integration of the TPM in the OS is essentially non-existent. The introduction of the TPM2.0 standard complicates matters, because we now have two different devices with different APIs. The goal of this project would be to identify reasonable use cases for the TPM, evaluate exisiting projects, and create ways how to integrate it into various workflows in openSUSE.

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

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.

Secure keyboard

an idea by mwilck

This idea was inspired by the recent discussion on the "talk" mailing list about the (in)security of the German ID card. The Chaos Computer Club and other researchers claim that the ID card is insecure. Actual attacks that have been demonstrated are based on keyloggers. Keyloggers might be the biggest security threat for Linux users at this time. Keyloggers are trivial to write for Linux and readily installable, and a keylogger with normal user rights may read root's password. One might ask "Why are we caring about local root exploits at all as long as users run stuff like sudo in X terminals"? Keyloggers can even read the input from devices like the Yubikey.

SUSE Manager / Salt integration revisited

a project by j_renner

There is a number of possible improvements to the architecture of SUSE Manager / Salt integration that should be investigated in order to improve the reliability and scalability of the backend: 1. Actions are currently scheduled in the minions using the schedule module of Salt. This brings problems with reliability as for instance a minion can be down at the specified schedule time which leads to actions not being executed. Scalability can be an issue as actions being scheduled for many minions might return results to the server at the same time. Instead it might be better to keep control over scheduled actions on the server to allow batching of actions as well as downtimes of minions or even the server. There is a work in progress branch to get started.

Setup UEFI HTTPBoot with OVMF and try to write/run test on openQA

a project by bchou

HTTPBoot was added into UEFI SPEC since 2.5. It aims to replace PXE and provides more features. Actually, the concept of HTTPBoot is similar to PXE. It starts with the HTTP URL from the DHCP server and fetches the data with the HTTP protocol. The key difference between HTTPBoot and PXE is the support of DNS. With DNS, the firmware and the bootloader can resolve the domain name so it's possible to pass the well-known URL to download the image instead of the explicit IP URL. Besides, HTTP is designed to cross different domains, while tftp (PXE) is only for the local network. Part1:

Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.
