Well, I build Simple but functional webapps and webpages... I certanly can
build a web gadget with a feed parsing function so when you run the app (or
if you have it open) you recieve all the important Fedora News in the moment
they are generated, a "Notifier" to call it in some way. I can bring it to
the Desktop using technologies such as Adobe AIR (I know we have problems
with AIR because it's not free) But there is also Titanium, I never used it
but it's suposed to furfill the air's functions being opensource. There is
also another alternative: Mozilla Prism. We add this program to fedora and
somehow create a launcher for the webgadget in the O.S.

Also, if we're going to work with web gadgets I bet there's a PLASMA WIDGET
to serve as a notifier so there should be one similar app for Gnome (Like a
Screenlet or I don't Know) But the other Option can be to put these apps for
default opened in all major desktops, parsing the Fedora Feed. By Fedora
Feed i refer to any of the news feeds of the project, it can be the Twitter
Feed, one from blogger, Facebook, I don't Know (Or maybe we can build a new
one just for these cases, don't know, I'm just giving ideas)

That's the help I can offer, I only work with Web Code...
