Investigate and setup internal survey system

a project by rsimai

We often struggle to get feedback from our people, in particular if it's supposed to be anonymous. There are external systems on the Internet which are typically commercial, where (free) usage is limited and situation with GDPR isn't clear. I want us to investigate and find (or found!) an Open Source project that allows to easily collect (internal) surveys.

Learn Ansible

an idea by cvar

Ansible is great for easily provisioning systems and whole clusters. Compared to Salt it may be slower, but on the other hand it doesn't have to install "minion-like" software on the hosts it operates on. My very-near-future plan is to create an Ansible playbook for fast-provisioning Ceph clusters and automatically running a series of functionality tests on them. Also, I can see Ansible playing an important role on my efforts for automating virtualization testing.

git-based mail client

an idea by KGronlund

I want to create a more modern mail storage format, which leverages git and tagging instead of folders to manage my mail. This is inspired by having used notmuch and mbsync for a long time, liking the good aspects of this setup but getting frustrated with the problems. Mainly the issue of storing mail on multiple computers with eventual consistency (for example being able to read mail on my laptop when travelling but my desktop computer when at home).

Path clustering for multipathd

an idea by mwilck

Recent multipath-tools contains a patch series that allows latency-based path prioritization. However the code is clumsy and not well designed. More importantly, I think that the applied algorithm, which is based on simple methods like comparing averages and standard deviations, is suboptimal. I consider replacing it with a clustering-based approach, using the open source cluster library.

KDevelop plugin for showing information inline in the code

a project by michalsrb

I use the KDevelop IDE whenever I can. At SUSE mostly for reading code while debugging some bug. My plan is to create plugin that will show extra information inline with the code to make it easier to explore foreign code. Examples include showing names of function parameters at call site, elided types of variables (e.g. C++ auto, lambda parameters), comments next to closing brackets etc.

Storage War Games

a project by jluis

When we started brain storming a project for hack week, one of the floated ideas was to remake the 1983 film WarGames, and for lack of available space, a local lot with storage units was proposed. Over the course of the following years, while we planned, we realized that this whole idea would not be the most feasible, but it still felt like we were onto something. Eventually, we settled with keeping the name and changing the scope.

Bugzilla Sync for Taiga

an idea by suntorytimed

What is Taiga? On the first view Taiga (taiga.io) is a open source Trello replacement. On the second it is way more than that. Taiga does offer a lot more integration into Scrum and Kanban Workflow than Trello could ever do (even if you would pay for all those neat power-ups). Taiga is offered as hosted and self-hosted (as it is completely open source) and does offer all features in payed and free accounts on the hosted solution. Unlike tools like Gitlab where there are premium features that are held back for the enterprise offering this tool is developed in the open (https://github.com/taigaio).

How-to guide on switching from docker/docker-compose to a cri-o/k8s world In this project I basically want to explore how you can move your containers (including its data and overlayfs2 layers) from Docker based docker-compose setup to a cri-o based k8s setup. This will mainly include doing a lot of research and try to find out the differences and how to transfer all the stuff without much downtime. It might also include some tooling effort.

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.

Learn Android development

an idea by mvetter

Over the years I have stumbled upon various Android projects where I needed a feature and wasn't able to implement it because I had no idea about Android development. Downloading an SDK by hand and setting it up one time on a computer always seemed like a waste of time to me. I prefer writing a package once or writing config files ones and then can use them everywhere later. This put me off for quite a while.

Bring /media directory back

a project by sbrabec

/media was a very comfortable thing standardized by FHS. After introduction of desktop based udisks mounts, the directory became empty. Paths like /run/media/me/directory or /run/user/1000/gvfs are used nowadays. When used from a terminal, it is very uncomfortable. As mounts are private to users, the old style of /media use cannot be returned back. But with a kernel namespaces feature, it is possible to make private mounts, and each user can see a different contents of /media.

Also since i mainly need to manage opensuse machines most of which are tumbleweed, suse managers repository model does not really work well in that case.

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?

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).
