- Improving Harvest
- Implement syslog namespace
Containers share the host's syslog, and so can read, write, and clear them. A syslog namespace should prevent the container from accessing or clearing kernel messages. Userspace-generated messages should go to the container's own syslog. Ideally, a new ns_printk() kernel function should be provided to target certain kernel-generated messages (like iptables messages).
- Improved multiple devpts mounts support
- Implement cgroup fake root
- Communtu appliance system and library
Current Communtu LiveCDs are based on the Ubuntu Desktop edition. Appliances (like a LAMP, Joomla or Wikimedia installation) will by based on Ubuntu Server edition. An appliance library will store LiveCDs, DVDs and virtual machines, with discussion and support. Note that the CD for the server edition is technically very different from the CD for desktop edition. Required skills: ruby on rails; bash; Ubuntu internals
- Dialogue system in Communtu
The modern way of installing your computer should not be via endless googling and asking your friends what software you need, but through a dialogue system that asks you some questions about your needs, and based on that, makes suggestions for suitable software (which then can be bundled to a LiveCD or virtual machine using the other parts of Communtu). We have some existing linguistic ontology and some dialogue framework in mind that could be used, but are not commited to this. Required skills: ontologies; a bit of linguistics; AI; a bit of ruby on rails (where the latter could also be learned during the project)
