FWIW, I only discovered both Seahorse and Liferea (back in F9) because
someone recommended them to me.

Performing a 'yum search encryption' yields 52 replies, 'yum search
keys' yields 80 replies, and 'yum search keyring' yields 24 replies;
none of which are seahorse. In the first two searches, the
signal-to-noise ratio is just too high, and in the last search (the most
useful one), seahorse doesn't show up.

Similarly, 'yum search rss' returns 39 results, and liferea doesn't
necessarily stand out (though it's a bit more obvious than seahorse).
