Hey guys,

I just filed an Request for Resources ticket to get our AMQP infrastructure started.


For those who haven't been following the messaging sig, AMQP brokers are messaging services which will allow us to go beyond our current e-mail notification system by standardizing on a single software parsable notification format and routing system.

The reason we need more than one broker is for security reasons.  The main broker will only take events from internal infrastructure relay them to other brokers in different security domains.  Clients will only be able to attach to these relays via various authentication mechanisms (FAS or in the case of the FComm broker, web browser domain security).  If they act up we can always cut them without interrupting other channels.   The full writeup is on the messaging sig wiki - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Messaging_SIG
