logorator: an offline internal analytics tool

a project by dleidi

There are customer use cases where sharing information via internet or uploading data somewhere is not acceptable for security reasons: this avoid the usage of some tool like the most famous Google Analytics, and prevent developers from understanding how the web application is used by the customers. I don't want to reinvent the wheel and re-implement a copy of Google Analytics, but getting inspired from it, the goal is to reuse information that we already have to extrapolate an analysis of the WebApp customer usage. I started this project with the aim of learning a programming language where I am not so comfortable yet (python). The purpose of this Hack Week project is to bring this basic tool at a minimal stable and usable state with the purpose of analyze the usage of a WebApp in scenarios where the WebApp is used in an internal network only (offline, disconnected from the internet).

The investigation will focus on gnome-software update stack, initial setup of the system after installation, as well as the CJK support. Surprising difference is not excluded during playing across distributions.

Salt Support Tools (try to ditch supportconfig)

a project by bmaryniuk

Currently Salt is using supportconfig utility alongside with the SUSE Manager installation. Every single bugreport for Salt, that contains its logs are always useless that regard. It might work for SUSE Manager, but for Salt it doesn't. And even after asking user to switch the cluster into a debug mode or even trace mode, it is still far away from being useful enough, so the supporter don't need to dance with the tambourine around the fire, guessing what ghost just munged what component. What if we can reuse Salt's internal tooling and develop some more tools that will not just grab logs/sysinfo from what is already there, but also get much more data, "x-ray" minions, turn them into a debug mode, collect right data, perform tests realtime etc?

Create a web interface for the Bard music manager to stream music locally (and other improvements)

a project by alarrosa

The Bard music manager is a command line tool to organize local music I've been developing over the last years (in Hackweek 15 it was called finddupmusic). It parses your local music collection and stores the metadata in a sqlite database, then it can generate audio fingerprints and recognize similar/duplicated songs. It can also be used to play music (using internally mpv), set ratings, fix metadata, etc. The purpose of this project would be to create a web interface for Bard, so users can use their browsers to get music streamed to their computers/phones (with format conversions on-the-fly). Probably it should implement the AURA protocol for this.

A naive idea to compromise confidential level of embargoed vulnerabilities

Disclaimer: I have zero knowledge on security studies and very little knowledge on our internal security workflow. The idea popped out from the observation on my daily work which includes backporting security fixes, occasionally a couple of which are embargoed. Lashes are welcome if you find the idea stupid. When an embargoed vulnerability reaches SUSE, the related bugs / fixes are usually only exposed to a small group of people including maintainers of the affected package. While bugzilla can made an issue private for that purpose, For OBS I'm unaware of an option like "private project / package" that blocks unwanted access (please correct me if it does exist).

Extend urlwatch to support monitoring of GitHub (and other git) repos

an idea by kbabioch

I'm currently using urlwatch to watch for new releases in upstream projects. It monitors the output of a URL and notifies you about any changes. This works fine for URLs, but there is currently no official support for GitHub. Due to the nature of the GitHub webpages, there is a some change each time you access the page and it is difficult to come up with the right set of filters. Since there is an official API that can be used to ask for changes in a particular repository, it would be nice if urlwatch had support for it. I've worked on a prototype in the past, but never came around to cleaning it up, and making it configurable through urlwatch's configuration files. Upstream is interested in this feature and is willing to merge it.

Overview

With the recent explosion of product extensions, modules, bases, the decomposition of monolithic base products into modules, and the amount of churn in product composition between releases, the task of calculating product dependencies and migrations between products has approached the complexity of package management. We have a state of the art tool for solving package dependencies, so why not apply it to the new domain?

Supportconfig improvements for SOC

a project by pedrivo

The supportconfig tool is a great resource for troubleshooting common system issues on SLES but its functionalities might not be enough to troubleshoot other issues related to cloud solutions. I would like to invite you to contribute on this project by creating new plugins/tools to complement supportconfig's great power and ease the troubleshooting process for SUSE Openstack Cloud product. Main goal:

Record SUSE's Nürnberg office from above and have fun (with drones)

an idea by kbabioch

Since I'm a little bit of a drone-a-matic myself, and I enjoy flying around with drones, I propose to fly around/above the SUSE building, record some footage, and make a cool promo video out of it. We could potentially use this footage (together with some recordings from inside the building taken by hand) as a promotion for the company and show others (via social media, etc.) how cool of a place SUSE and the Nürnberg office actually is.

Disturb Face Recognition

an idea by kfreitag

People do photos everywhere, and share them via social networks. some like it, some also really not. Social networks arouse suspicion to do face recognition on posted photos and that is the point where it really becomes scary.

Project Maxfeld: Cultural Onboarding to counter unknown unknowns

a project by mfeilner

I promised to start this project way earlier, but I think Hackweek will be a great time to make a start. The project once was called $BABELFISH, later "Rumsfeld", to honor the creator of the "Unknown unknowns" meme, now it's name is Maxfeld.

Search people by tag

an idea by dleidi

The problem I typically find very hard to figure out in the whole SUSE company who is the go-to guy for a certain skill/knowledge/experience. I'd like to have some place where one, who does not know people around him, can just browse and search for people by some tag or label. Sometimes you have a problem in a specific area but you don't know who to ask to, or even if you do, you don't know there were many other people with the same knowledge/experience you could have ask before.

Scripts and recipes for setting up VMs with multipath and other compex storage stacks

a project by mwilck

Customers are using complex storage stacks such as LVM over dm-crypt over MD RAID over multipath over iSCSI and FC with LOTs of LUNs, and we're facing problems in that area which are usually very hard to reproduce. It's also hard to guard against regressions. Being able to quickly and reliably set up VMs with various types of storage / multipath is a key part of testing multipath. It's doable, but cumbersome and has a steep learning curve. I want to create easy-to-understand manual recipes plus scripts that are both easy to understand / customize and deploy.

netlink interface for ethtool

a project by mkubecek

There seems to be an overall consensus that the ioctl interface used by ethtool is a poor design as it's inflexible, error prone and notoriously hard to extend. It should clearly be replaced by netlink and obsoleted. Unfortunately not much actual work has been done in that direction until this project started. The project started in Hackweek 16 (fall 2017) and has been worked on since, both in Hackweek 17-19 and outside. First two parts of kernel implementation are in mainline since 5.6-rc1, first part of userspace implementation (ethtool utility) has been submitted to upstream at the end of Hackweek 19 (2020-02-16).

Better support for Chromebooks

an idea by suntorytimed

Better support for Chromebooks Chromebooks do have very limited hardware in terms of storage and RAM. But it is still the cheapest solution to a truly open source notebook, as it allows to replace its coreboot based bootloader with your own coreboot and payload (f.e. Tiano Core or Seabios).
