Actually, one of my goals is to kill off the current method of posting
to bodhi. In my mind, it's the wrong way to be doing things and causes
problems on our end. I want to have a restful api for results querying
and use that as an interface instead of posting things directly to

I talked to Luke about this informally at either PyCon or Flock and
IIRC, he liked the idea. It'll take some work to make all that happen
and I'm not expecting it to come with the initial deployment of
taskotron, but it's on my mind for the future.

If you're talking about rpm dependencies, that should already be taken
care of with depcheck. I've honestly not given much thought to any
attempts to get into "do these packages actually work with eachother"
beyond checking for ABI breakage.

These are both on our todo list. The fedmsg part is going to be an
interesting conversation, though - I'm not quite sure how to handle
reporting and notifications. Interestingly enough, starting that
conversation on qa-devel@ (for now, eventually moving to devel@) is on
my todo list today :)
