Hack the Hack Week tool

an invention by hennevogel

This project is about advancing the tool you're currently browsing. It got started back in Hack Week 9 to retire all the weird tools we've used in the past to track ideas. As you can see it has gone far but is still far from done. There are lots of features missing and bugs to be fixed on github. Get going!

Build and validate a scale-out Samba/CTDB cluster atop CephFS

an invention by dmdiss

Samba and CTDB rely heavily on POSIX fcntl locks for data and meta-data integrity. This functionality was recently fixed in CephFS, opening up the possibility to use CephFS as an underlying filesystem for a scale-out Samba/CTDB cluster. Such an architecture should perform and scale much better than the existing single Samba + VFS module gateway.

Ticklist is a web application enabling users to record their ascents of climbing routes as well as to maintain their personal list of currently projected routes. My implementation went from working alpha back to pre-alpha status (~ basic things not working) while migrating parts of the codebase (knockout.js -> angular.js). The goal of this hackweek project was therefore to finish this migration and fix the basic features in order to make the app useful at least for personal usage. The current technology stack is node, express, sequelize, jade (templating), angular and twitter bootstrap. Lots of future features come to my mind, like showing advanced statistics, integration with social networks, support bouldering ticklists as well, location based stuff, and so on.

Support for automatically building kernels with user-influenced configuration

an invention by vbabka

Sometimes a user might want to build her own kernel instead of using the provided binary, for various reasons. This means creating own .config and maintaining it through kernel version bumps, which often results in running "make oldconfig" and mostly holding down the enter button to accept upstream defaults. What I envision instead is a way to say where I want my own config to deviate from the distro default (as provided by e.g. kernel-stable on openSUSE), and only those options will override the distro default configuration. This distro default configuration is always updated for new upstream releases, so there should be no need to (manually or automatically) accept new upstream defaults, thus less risk of producing a broken kernel, as e.g. any new kernel options will be configured in the distro kernel so that they work with the distro itself (while upstream defaults might not be safe or desired).

The goal is not to fix all problems, a stripped down system with uselessd is considered a good achievement. Anything more complicated could build on top of this.

All documentation as program code

an invention by jsmeix

I like to try out if it is possible to write a program that does not have any kind of the traditionally separated documentation (like external files that contain the documentation texts or comments in the program code). Instead all documentation must be implemented as code at the same place where the matching functiomnality is implemented (i.e. each function implements also its documentation). In the end the user should get only the executable that he can run to let it do the intended functionality and also to provide any kind of documentation. What I do not want is a dumb '--help' option that lets the program spit out its built-in documentation. What I would like to have is that the user can run the executable in some kind of self-inspecting way. I mean: While it does the intended functionality, it can also provide documentation so that the user can explore the program while running it. In the end the user experience should be more like a text adventure ;-)

Scalability improvement for running tiedot database on SMP systems

tiedot is a general purpose, document database engine designed for both embeddable usage and running stand-alone DB server, implemented in Go. Despite the effort of partitioning collection data and indexes, a single tiedot process still cannot scale beyond 4 CPU cores due to limitations of both data structure and Go runtime. Last year, an attempt began to partition data across multiple tiedot processes, and use IPC for communication and database logics. Initial benchmarks show promising scalability improvement using the new implementation. So let us complete the new implementation together, to bring the most scalable & embeddable DB engine for Go programs!

SMBIOS 3.0 support in dmidecode

an invention by jdelvare

On February 12th, 2015, the DMTF released version 3.0.0 of the System Management BIOS Reference Specification. This update isn't just adding enumerated values to existing structures, as previous updates did. It is also introducing a new entry point format which allows for larger tables and structures. Support for this needs to be added to dmidecode. Additionally, reading the entry point and the table from /dev/mem is no longer possible on all systems, so some work is in progress to offer an alternative interface through sysfs. It would be great to finalize this and release a new version of dmidecode that would support both SMBIOS version 3.0 and this new kernel interface.

Bare metal testing in OpenQA

an invention by kwk

OpenQA uses the VNC protocol to interface with a test system. This limits test systems to be virtualized. Bare metal (physical) systems do not provide VNC out-of-the-box.

AppArmor utils: rewrite more rule types into classes

an invention by cboltz

While the python-based AppArmor utils (aa-logprof etc.) are much easier to understand and maintain than the old perl code, there are still some terribly long functions like parseprofiledata() in aa.py that are not too easy to understand. Also, using hasher() (a recursive array) as storage can have some strange side effects. Another problem is that test coverage isn't too good, especially for the bigger functions. I already wrote the CapabilityRule and CapabilityRuleset classes (and also the BaseRule and BaseRuleset classes) some months ago, and changed the code to use those classes. This code is already in upstream bzr.

KDE4/5 packages for SLE

an invention by alarrosa

I'll try to generate KDE4 and KDE Frameworks 5 packages for SLE12. After talking with plinnell and tittiatcoke, I refocused the project to generate mainly KDE4 packages and KDE5 packages if time allows it (instead of just KDE5 packages as I originally thought to do)

Update cpan modules in OBS

an invention by coolo

devel:languages:perl has 2662 packages, but many of them are outdated because it's just a fight no man can win to update them. So we update them whenver we hit a problem. But this is evil: I count 2662 packages in devel:languages:perl and 1188 of them are outdated. So I'll write a script... just as we did with gems

Getting OBS to build virt-builder repositories

an invention by cbosdonnat

virt-builder main repository contains quite a few distro images, but no opensuse one. The goal of this project is to make OBS able to create a virt-builder repository out of a few kiwi packages. Ideally this would later be used to provide some official opensuse images for virt-builder.

Improve futex coverage in trinity

an invention by dbueso

Futexes are complex enough that make it a good candidate for applying fuzzy testing techniques to the various inputs and operations that can be performed. Instead of re-writing any testing infrastructure, make use of the trinity system call fuzzing tool. While trinity does apply fuzzing to futexes, it does so with very limited knowledge, using only generic callbacks to the different steps involved. As such the main goal is extending testing coverage and making it more ad-hoc.
