Hi Everyone,

This is an email to bring everyone up to speed with the Fedora Messaging Notifications (FMN) Replacement initiative.

What is FMN?
FMN is a service which allows users to create filters on messages sent via the message bus in Fedora Infrastructure. Users can then forward these notifications to their respective email addresses and/or IRC profiles.

Why is it being replaced?

Design Plan

Write a fedora-messaging consumer that would triage incoming messages and add notifications to one queue per destination (email, irc, matrix). They would be on a FMN-specific vhost on the RabbitMQ server. Then write AMQP consumers for these queues to actually send the notifications. This would allow the IRC and Matrix notifiers to maintain a permanent connection to the IRC/Matrix server(s).

This work requires all applications to use Fedora Messaging Message Schemas, because the triage component will rely on schemas to extract information from the messages.

Prospective Timelines
