Learn KMS / DRM graphics driver internals - implement virtual/software KMS driver

I want to understand the basics and architecture of KMS / DRM drivers in the kernel (also in mesa, but this project is more about the kernel-side). I will read docs and attempt to implement a virtual kernel-mode-setting driver (vkms) as described in Documentation/gpu/todo. This would be a KMS driver for a fake modesetting graphics device, just using normal system memory. This can be useful for learning, but judging from dri-developer discussions, also useful for testing hotplug races, plane blending and finding other KMS/DRI infrastructure bugs.

Sometimes, you want a flexible way to handle certain situations involving C++ exceptions, particularly those for which alternative actions are either easily encapsulated, do not substantially interrupt the program flow, or must cross a foreign-function interface or thread boundary. A useful idiom is to rewrite attempts to perform an action with such forms of exception handling as instead returning a monadic value, like with C++17's std::optional<>:

Use OpenStack Rally for SUSE Cloud testing

a project by evshmarnev

OpenStack is, undoubtedly, a really huge ecosystem of cooperative services. Rally is a benchmarking tool that answers the question: “How does OpenStack work at scale?”. To make this possible, Rally automates and unifies multi-node OpenStack deployment, cloud verification, benchmarking & profiling. Rally does it in a pluggable way, making it possible to check whether OpenStack is going to work well on, say, a 1k-servers installation under high load. Thus it can be used as a basic tool for an OpenStack CI/CD system that would continuously improve its SLA, performance, and stability. <img src="https://wiki.openstack.org/w/images/thumb/e/ee/Rally-Actions.png/850px-Rally-Actions.png" width="700">

Hopefully this will turn into a standard UVC device once the initial bootstrap is done fingers crossed. Specifications (From AverMedia webside):

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-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.

Add URLs for source repos and communication to Hackweek projects

a project by eclectigeek

It would be excellent if Hackweek projects had a standard way to include URLs for their code repositories, as well as URLs for communication methods like chat and email. This would allow folks who are interested in a project to either lurk a bit to learn more, or directly reach out to the folks running the project. 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.

Integrate zeromq into crowbar-openstack as a alternative to rabbitmq

a project by StevenK

RabbitMQ is, in this hacker's opinion, hard to run, hard to scale, hard to debug, and difficult to run in a HA situation. ZeroMQ takes a different approach from the centralized broker model, and instead runs a daemon on every machine that needs to send or receive message over the bus, and communicates directly between machines. * Package up zeromq.

Create an Jangouts ownCloud App

an idea by kfreitag

Jangouts (for "Janus Hangouts") is a solution for videoconferencing based on WebRTC. It would be cool to be able to use that from within ownCloud, and thus it could be embedded in an ownCloud App.

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

an idea by winddss

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.
