User assisted udev rules

an idea by sbrabec

udev is a perfect tool for applying hardware based rules. But there are some devices that are indistinguishable by its identification and even by probe. Such devices need user assistance to get them properly identified.

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).

Desktop comparison between Leap and Fedora (e.g. software update stack, gnome-initial-setup, CJK support etc.)

an idea by yfjiang

The project to give an investigation of the difference between openSUSE Leap (aligned with SLE), Tumbleweed (SLE's future release) and Fedora (a good gnome based Desktop outside SUSE release family), trying to have a better understanding of what the Leap/SLE desktop can possibly be as a general platform in future releases. 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.

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders

Effort planning in large-scale agile projects with multiple stakeholders The analysis and selection of requirements are important parts of any release planning process. Most practices focuse on release planning based on plan-driven optimization models. Nevertheless, solving the release planning problem mechanistically is difficult in an agile development context with multiple stakeholders.

These scripts work on a prototype-basis, but there is a lot of follow-up work to do, e.g.:

Clean up the Uyuni frontend stack

a project by j_renner

Many of the Uyuni / SUSE Manager web UIs are still based on the no longer maintained Struts framework (version 1.2!) and implemented as JSP pages, while we added newer features based on the Spark framework and React. For me there is a vision of using only one technology stack (especially just one web framework, frontend framework and template engine) eventually, so it is about time to get rid of the old stack. While this is surely a huge effort, why not start with a new login page and then go from there rewriting other pages one by one? Things to look at in particular:

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

an idea by zhangxiaofei

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).
