Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from version 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the work of manually disable all of the repositories, update them manually, open the terminal and finally make a "zypper dup" .

crash-python

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

openQA IDE

a project by coolo

There is a running gag built into openQA called interactive mode. It goes like this: "if you need the interactive mode, it's broken". The reason: the so called interactive mode is a collection of hacks - in theory making it possible to update needles in a running test. But in fact it's a UI desaster that almost never works. So the goal of this hackweek project is to get rid of it - and instead build a real control from the webui into the backend allowing tests to be written on the fly including needle creation/updates. Easy as that.

The project started in Hackweek 16 (fall 2017) and has been worked on since, both in Hackweek 17-19 and outside.

Big SUSE Event Bus (for SUSE services integration)

a project by mdinca

Within SUSE we are using various systems for different tasks. E.g. GitHub and GitLab as DVCS, Jenkins for building or testing, OBS for building… and the list continues. Some of those systems can be interconnected in some way. But not every system can do that, especially if you are behind a corporate firewall and some (I'm looking at you GitHub) have a quota. So wouldn't it be nice to have something like a Big SUSE event bus, where every event we'd be interested in could be queried or subscribed to? But before conquering the world, we have to start small. Let's start with GitHub! GitHub has a decent API that let's you query their system. The goal looks like this: Allow multiple clients to query information from GitHub without using the quota irresponsibly. It should also be possible to push state changes to subscribers.

Create a tool to generate vCPU/vNUMA topology for virtual machines

a project by jfehlig

Most large workloads such as SAP HANA require special, highly optimized configuration to run in a virtual machine. Virtual resources such as memory and CPU must be carefully configured to ensure optimum performance of the virtual machine workload. Default VM configuration created by tools such as virt-install are not optimized and often result in poor performance of large workloads due to memory access latencies and incorrect/incomplete information available to the VM's task scheduler. Currently, users deploying large workloads must manually optimize virtual CPU and memory resources, which can be error-prone and if not done properly can actually degrade performance. This project aims to create a tool that can produce suggested vCPU and vNUMA configuration based on a VM configuration template and capabilities of the target virtual machine host.

Research telemetry for (open)SUSE products

an idea by dmacvicar

Most of design is done still with a embarrassing amount of data. Having released software for decades, we still don't know exactly what module is the most used, what workflows the customers are following, where do customers fail. It is all guesses and opinions. The idea of this project is to research:

Rocket.Chat Protocol Plugin for Thunderbird

an idea by mook_work

While SUSE still runs mainly on IRC, we still need to interact with others, some of which occurs on Slack and Rocket.Chat. I'd like to have one chat application with a good overview of all the various channels I'm in, across the different servers. Sadly, Pidgin isn't a choice here because they don't have a built in web browser, which is required for SAML logins with Rocket.Chat.

Pair Programming Test Drive/Probefahrt

a project by mamorales

Are you interested in pairing? Are you wondering whether it is something that would help you and your team members in your current project? Would you like to try it out before you fully commit to such an extreme idea? Then this is your lucky day Sir/Madam! Within the Cloud Foundry project you are expected to pair pretty much every time you are working on something. In the BOSH OpenStack CPI team this isn't the exception, so I've been doing it for the past 15 months. I'd like to transfer some of that experience to you fellow SUSE colleague. We can discuss about the pros and cons that this agile methodology has. For example, there are many misconceptions on how to pair, for once, having the right hardware makes a huge difference. During Hack Week 16 you have the chance to test drive a dual-control workstation (see image) which I believe is one of the biggest differentiators to have a good experience when pairing full time.

Wayland security review.

an idea by yfjiang

One of the significant advantages of Wayland is about security, to isolate input/output of every single windows, encourage non-root user running the core process, as well as discouraging root user running any graphical applications. The project wants to have a close look at Wayland trying to address the questions: - how is wayland exactly integrated in current gnome stack of Tumbleweed/SLE (gnome-shell, mutter)

Parser to extract function names from openQA lib/ functions - improve perl skills

a project by jorauch

Since there is no real documentation about openQA's lib/ functions I wanted to kill two birds with one stone and write a parser in perl that extracts all function names (and maybe preceding comments) in said directory and improve my perl knowledge by doing this. Possible additions:

openSUSE Infrastructure "Factory first"-like policy

a project by tampakrap

The SLE15 development model follows the Factory First policy, where all submissions need to go first to openSUSE:Factory and then to SLE15 repos. This way more bugs are fixed, less patches get lost, less backporting is happening etc. Our openSUSE infrastructure is using salt for configuration management. This was working fine, but suddenly we had to split the openSUSE from the SUSE-DMZ services into separate VLANs, thus the salt codebase had to be split as well. The code itself is mostly formulas and quite similar states between the two set of services though. The only real difference was in the pillars, and even there there was a lot of duplication.

Add ASCIIDOC support to DAPS

a project by fsundermeyer

DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by the SUSE documentation team and hosted on https://opensuse.github.io/daps/ . Currently DAPS supports building documentation from DocBook 4 and 5 sources. The goal of this project is to add support for ASCIIDOC to DAPS. This will allow to easily create all output formats mentioned above with the official SUSE brand from ASCIIDOC without having to take care about templates and other stuff.

Task manager in Elixir/Erlang

a project by vmoravec

Elixir is a Ruby-ish dialect of Erlang with meta-programming capabilities, this is my first project using it: pedro . The idea is to create a task manager that would organize tasks (jobs) and manage them in projects. It will be running locally, remotely or both in multi-node setup, will provide CLI, have web UI relying on http and websockets. It makes use of erlang OTP, web framework phoenix that is inspired by rails. Author of elixir and main contributor to phoenix is Jose Valim, he's also the author of devise rubygem and former contributor to rails.
