Project Info

Project Name: Fedora Messaging Bus

Target Audience: Infrastructure

Expiration/Delivery Date (required):


Create a messaging bus for the various Fedora services to be able to communicate with each other.

Project plan (Detailed):
The current target is somewhat outlined here:

We need to implement a test AMQP broker running qpid.  Depending on how security domains are structured, this could be three or more diffent brokers (Fedora Infrastructure, Fedora Community, FAS).

The different fedora services either need to have a shim implemented to take there current interface and connect it to a broker, or be patched to allow for dirrect message support. There will likely be a mix as some services such as bugzilla, it will be very difficult to add dirrect support.

The shims could be operating via email notifications (buzilla), or xmlRPC, or a mix.

The email based shims would use procmail or simmilar to pass the information to an interperting python script.

Once core services such as Koji, Pkgdb, SCM, FAS, and Buzilla have functioning AMQP connections, and the broker is stable. This system would then be pushed to production hardware.  Other services could then be added in later.


Specific resources needed

A test server is need to host:

  • Broker(s)
  • FAS
  • Koji
  • SCM
  • procmail (recive bugzilla email from production server)
  • various shims
