Another possibility is to use the web-service hook mechanism to

on, and we
could generate emails from that. The downsides are obvious: we
would have to
1) host it, and 2) write it. Though maybe #2 isn't entirely true,
since I
have a hard time believing that we're the first ones to do
something like
this. Does anyone know of a github thing, web service or
otherwise, to generate pull request emails?
And a 3rd, similar, possibility is to run something from cron that
queries the various things we're interested in using the github API
and does the posting to the list itself.

I'm starting to think that maybe integrating with the list is more
trouble than it's worth. We're already going to be getting the pull
request emails sent to us since we're owners/members of the team.
Anyone else interested can watch the repos using github to get the
same messages.
They can also use Fedora Notifications. Ralph has an example of using
it to get notifications for specific github activity here:


perhaps you could talk to him about having a pre-canned filter for
anaconda messages or something, and some info for interested parties
to set that up?

Ryan got me in touch with Ralph, who emailed me some stuff that I'll take a closer look at once I've gotten the rest of the way to Brno and slept for like seventeen hours probably. At a glance it appears that the github2fedmsg bridge plus the notification router can do what we're aiming for, or at least something pretty close.
