We're having a look at FMN these days, and we're trying to design its replacement
in our Fedora Messaging enabled world.
The current FMN has the following shortcomings:
- too slow at runtime
- slow at startup time (a couple of hours to startup…)
- complex UI
We think that this all comes from the same root cause: FMN is too flexible. It's
trying to be everyone's procmail, and as a result the UI is complex and performance is
Also, in the past years we've adopted quite a few external services (Discourse,
Gitlab, etc) which come with their own notification systems, so the needs of FMN users may
have changed, and FMN can no longer be the one-stop-shop of notifications it aimed to
So we're planning to rewrite it as a much more simple notification system, with a few
pre-defined things you could subscribe to, clearly presented in the UI but with less bells
and whistles, and for that we're gathering your requirements.
What do you want from Fedora's notifications? We have identified the following use
- I want to be notified of what happens on my artifacts (packages, containers, modules,
- I want to be notified of what happens on any artifact by entering
its type and its name
Not really. However, not sure if the "watch" is counted in this category
or in the previous.
- I want to be notified of events referring to my username
What belongs into this category? Not really sure.
- I want to be able to follow someone (for example, my mentee)
I have never used this, so this is just nice to have. I think that
following in BZ is good enough.
- I want to be able to block or allow notifications from a particular
application (koji, bodhi, dist-git, etc)
It would be much easier if I can only "block" some notifications, when
everything is enabled by default.
- I want to my notifications to be sent via email and/or IRC
Are there other use cases that would make your contributor's life easier?
Currently I am notified by actions done by myself and I think there
should be option to disable this. Admitedly, notification about build
finished after some time might be useful, comparing to information that
I have commented in some Pagure ticket.
We're not committing to implementing everything that will be
suggested here, since we want to keep the app as simple as we can, but we're very
interested in your use cases.
And if you want to do something very complex with notifications, we can also help you
write a Fedora Messaging callback that will give you the full power of the message bus
Thanks for your help!
