Till now there's no official name. However, a redirect page called hermes has been created to preserve a name for the project.

The Reason

A large number of Fedora users don't read the Fedora wiki & websites, thus, they miss important tips & notifications.

The Concept

A simple application that reads a multilanguage web feed & post a new notification to the system D-Bus notifications system.

Prototypes

Python D-Bus Notifications Example

This is a simple Python application to post a notification to the system D-Bus notifications system:

import dbus
bus = dbus.SessionBus()
notifications = bus.get_object('org.freedesktop.Notifications', '/org/freedesktop/Notifications')
interface = dbus.Interface(notifications, 'org.freedesktop.Notifications')
id = 4856
timeout = 2500
interface.Notify('name',id,'','summary','body','','',timeout)

Benefit to Fedora

More interaction from new users
