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).

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.

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.

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.

Docker: Image Rebasing

an invention by cyphar

git rebase is a very useful construct in source control management, as it allows you to re-apply your changes atop a different branch of the same repository. While this concept transitions perfectly to container management (updating a container could be as easy as a docker rebase), and the Docker client is inspired by the git semantics, Docker has no such feature (in fact, Solomon Hykes used rebase and merge as examples of things "that we don't want"). Currently, zypper-docker works by applying an updated layer on top of an existing image. While this does work quite well, it separates the process of updating the base image and updating all of your derivative images (you need to re-download new packages for each derivative image). So, this project will be working on implementing something like git rebase for Docker images. There are several issues with this, mainly involving the fact that we are rebasing binaries and not source code, so merge conflicts will probably be quite messy. But it should be possible to implement some form of simple rebase method (which will essentially fall back to docker build in the worst case, which is what you were going to run anyway). By maximising the reuse of the existing image layers, it should be possible to reduce build times quite significantly.

Rewrite maintenance's dependency checkers in Python

an invention by leonardocf

We currently have a set of shell scripts that verify if patches can be properly installed on multiple combinations of base products, extensions and modules. These scripts are all written in shell and are annoying to maintain, as configuration and code is all mixed up. My objectives are: (a) to rewrite all the scripts in a single tool, in Python; (b) separate code and configuration, so that adding a new product/SP requires only editing a configuration file; and (c) make the checkers more flexible, allowing execution from the command line against specific repositories (use case: checking one single maintenance incident before submitting it to QAM).

Automate Haskell Packaging

an invention by psimons

We have various individual tools to automate parts of the Haskell packaging process, like cabal-rpm, but those tools aren't integrated into a fully automated system that keeps Haskell packages up-to-date with as little human intervention as possible. I would like to build that system. Stackage provides us with an accurate list of packages and versions that are known to work together well, and there are basically two flavors: the nightly snapshot (bleeding edge) and the LTS release (stable API). The former is appropriate for Tumbleweed, IMHO, and the latter is appropriate for stable releases like SLE or Leap. Now, we can use cabal-rpm to generate spec files automatically for all packages in a Stackage release and check them into OBS. The process does need some tweaking, however, because cabal-rpm generates spec files that don't always work well for SUSE. We could (a) branch cabal-rpm and add SUSE-specific know-how to remedy that issue or we could (b) maintain a set of patches that adapt the generated spec files to our needs. Once the Stackage releases are available in an OBS development project, we need another automated process that submits all updated packages to openSUSE:Factory, etc.

Rootless Containers

In recent Linux kernels, it has been possible to create containers without any privileges. All that's missing is a container runtime that allows you to do this. LXC is close but falls short (it requires certain privileged processes and PAM modules for everything to work).

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.

More diagnostics features for the Mojolicious event loop

an invention by kraih

Mojolicious is a web development toolkit and framework built around an event loop. That has many performance and scalability advantages, but can also make debugging slow code a bit of a challenge. Especially in big projects like openQA, where Devel::NYTProf can be a bit tricky to use, it would be nice to have more built-in diagnostics tools at the event reactor level. Mojo::UserAgent already has very good diagnostics features with MOJO_USERAGENT_DEBUG, and we should be able to do something similar for Mojo::IOLoop.

Distributed FS for openQA

an invention by oholecek

For far too long openQA instances are crippled by insufficient I/O throughput when under heavy load. This results in incomplete and aborted tests prolonging new snapshots testing and also adding confusion into the release process. OpenQA itself doesn't require any exact technology for its remote workers, but so far we relied on NFS. This was fine for few workers, now with 50+ of them this stopped to be a viable route however. There are some custom made mitigations like rsyncing tests, assets and needles before the actual test job run, but this feels like reinventing the wheel to me.

As VirtualBox has decent command line interface (especially VBoxManage command) it shouldn't be that hard to support VirtualBox in openQA's os-autoinst via svirt backend.

UNIX domain socket support for Mojolicious

an invention by kraih

The Mojolicious web development toolkit is currently limited to using TCP/IP sockets for its HTTP/WebSocket client and server. For most web services that's more than enough, but for containerized applications and IPC, UNIX domain sockets could provide significantly better performance and security. Use cases would be for example faster communication between Mojolicious application servers and NGINX reverse proxies, or a WebSocket alternative to the D-BUS message bus currently being used by openQA.

openSUSE Tumbleweed Snapshots: refactor for S3 and deploy

an invention by jberry

In lieu of official hosting which was requested a year ago, go ahead and refactor approach to work on AWS S3. The previous approaches used either soft or hard links to avoid duplicating files that remain unchanged between snapshots, but S3 is not a file-system and does not support links. The closest comparable concept are object level redirects, but managing and creating those would be combersome, slow, and result in a higher bill. To avoid that an alternative that does not require object level redirects to simulate links, but that does not requiring duplicating files would be preferable. In addition the tool built to provide such snapshots on S3 should be easily deployable and setup to run automatically on AWS.

motivation

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.

Automatically guess changelog entries for Haskell packages from upstream

an invention by psimons

All our packages have a *.changes file and ideally that file would mention relevant changes from upstream, i.e. during version updates. Currently, we find that information manually when packaging Haskell software. This is unsatisfactory because of the sheer size of the package set and the massive number of updates we receive from Hackage. The packaging itself is completely automatic, but editing the *.changes files is not and this issue prevents us from shipping more packages in Tumbleweed and elsewhere. Now, during this Hackweek I'd like to write code that given two Haskell package versions old and new can determine the upstream changelog entries between those two and create a pleasantly formatted entry for the *.changes file that won't need any manual editing to pass the review team. Then I'd like to integrate this into cabal2obs, or maybe even cabal2spec.

Goodbye Dister

an invention by cschum

SUSE Studio was shut down earlier this year. It has been online for more than ten years and there are tons of links and references out there. To not make them lead into the wasteland of 404 we should have a landing page on https://susestudio.com which leads to what users can use instead of SUSE Studio. I did a mockup of a page which could be hosted there. See it at https://github.com/cornelius/goodbye-dister.

Improve performance of JRuby's hash implementation

an invention by cbruckmayer

Synopsis

JRuby is an implementation of Ruby on the JVM. It aims to be a complete, correct and fast implementation of Ruby, at the same time as providing powerful new features such as concurrency without a global-interpreter-lock, true parallelism, and tight integration to the Java language to allow you to use Java classes in your Ruby program and to allow JRuby to be embedded into a Java application.

Out-of-the-box SPD support

an invention by jdelvare

In order to see the SPD (detailed memory information) data, the user currently has to manually load the needed kernel driver. Which driver to load depends on the memory type. Depending on the driver user, the devices may even have to be instantiated manually and this is a non-trivial multi-step task. Plus you need to be root to do it. I would like to attempt to automatize all this at least in the most common and simple cases like Intel x86 desktop. The idea would be to figure out the memory type and the I2C address of the SPD EEPROMs based on DMI data. If the DMI data is of good quality then it should be possible to automatically figure out which driver to use and to instantiate the devices at boot time.

Besides it forces us to have credentials hardcoded at the main.tf files, which is a huge problem for making a public CI for Uyuni.

You can encrypt your servers root filesystem, but need to provide a password during the boot process in order to "unlock" and start the system.

Learn Crystal by porting part of YaST to that language

an invention by ancorgs

For a very long time, I have been planning to play with Crystal as possible substitute/complement for Ruby. With that goal, I have isolated a very small subset of the Ruby project I know the best (yast-storage-ng) and I want to migrate that subset to Crystal to get a general feeling about the language. See the repository with the experiment already in progress. There is no evil plan to migrate YaST to Crystal. This is just done in the Hack Week spirit of "what if". But if more people join maybe we could get this to an state in which some benchmarks can be executed to check what's the real gain in speed and memory consumption using Crystal instead of Ruby (note: speed and memory are not the only goals of the migration).

Hamster is important for may daily workflow, as I'm using it for time accounting. While hamster-time-tracker-2.2.2 itself, as shipped on Tumbleweed, depends on python3 only, the build process requires python2. It's therefore in danger to be kicked out of the TW repos. Updating to 3.x will likely require some homework. Edit after hackweek 19: Almost done. Hamster 3.0-beta is available from the "Office" project on OBS. This took more efforts than foreseen though, because I got involved in beta testing and ended up testing, fixing issues, and going through tedious discussions with the current lead developer.

Automated test for game + only web based dev + Python openQA

an invention by okurz

motivation

Test automation can be fun and openQA is good at it but it has limitations. This project is meant to find out where the limits are for applications with lots of things moving on the screen, e.g. a game. Completely unrelated, web based tools become the norm for many users, e.g. when working from a chromebook or similar environments. The idea here is to try to use only web based tools and not force users to use a terminal which can be frightening :) As a third requirement: Some people are not feeling comfortable using openQA "because tests are written in Perl". This is not necessarily true because tests are rather written using a simplistic test API and only a small subset of Perl knowledge is necessary, however, we still want to support other entry points so there is Python support added in https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1558 . To find out what this new way is capable of this project should use only that Python support and find out any restrictions.

multithreaded network benchmark

an invention by mkubecek

Project Description

There are multiple network benchmark tools already, most popular probably being netperf and iperf. Each of them has its pros and cons but the biggest drawback probably is that netperf runs only one connection (flow) and while iperf can use multiple connections, it still runs in a single thread. For benchmarking of contemporary fast networks like 40Gb/s or 100Gb/s ethernet, this can be a severe limitation as the performance is often CPU bound. Even on 10Gb/s ethernet, we are often unable to saturate the medium if tunneling or complex packet processing is involved.
