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" .

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.

I'll also include the auxiliary infrastructure I've added around it over the years (various Makefiles and scripts for generating transcripts from comments) to the package so others can benefit from that stuff, too.

Prototype new LTP upstream runltp script

an invention by metan

Currently the upstream LTP is executed by a hacked up and old runltp script that executes even worse and fairly old mess called ltp-pan which in turn actually executes the test cases. This whole thing is a unmaintainable mess that should have been replaced with something simpler a long time ago. It should also have a few more features that has been requested in the meantime and not implemented since nobody wants to touch the code. For instance executing the test cases on a different machine via ssh and writing the results locally. Another feature I've been thinking about for quite some time is a parallel test execution, since most of the test cases in fact could be executed in parallel which could easily speed up the test run twice. There are other tests that cannot, mostly stress tests, but also test cases that modify global system state, i.e. system time, make use of sysv IPC, use loop devices, etc. These kind of tests should be annotated somehow so that we do not end up with a test cases competing for a global resources in a parallel test run.

Tools to make keysigning fun again (replacement for caff)

There is a tool called caff, which is the de-facto standard when dealing with keysigning (on a large scale, e.g. after a key signing party). This tool hasn't been touch in years, is written and configured in Perl (hence cannot be read and/or maintained :smile:) and is not easy to package, because of a lot of dependencies, etc. It is not even available in our default repositories (at least for Tumbleweed). In general there seems to be a certain kind of frustration with this software, but there is no real alternative available yet. Ideally the new toolset should allow to organize a complete keysigning party, e.g. it should assist the organizer with:

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).

Lots of crucial steps in the SUSE/openSUSE product build workflow are not known or not even accessible by many people but hidden as "custom scripts" on "some machine" in the worst cases. Nowadays infrastructure and build pipelines should be written as code, e.g. in git repos, with UI frontends to show the always current state of what is going on, what needs to be done to release products, where are problems. The least we can do is learn a bit more in this direction.

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

an idea by suntorytimed

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.

openSUSE package of Waterfox

a project by lproven

Since Firefox 57, SUSE's default browser no longer supports XUL extensions. This is a problem for those of us who customized Firefox extensively with multiple addons. There are other Firefox forks out there, but Waterfox is based on v56, the most recent version of Firefox before the switch to Quantum -- https://www.waterfoxproject.org/en-US/

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.
