Is Bodhi's fedmsg integration in the UI useful?

Greetings again!

In my quest to kill Bodhi features so I can have a smaller codebase to
maintain, I am considering getting rid of the fedmsg integration in the
web interface:

<a href="https://github.com/fedora-infra/bodhi/issues/2913" title="https://github.com/fedora-infra/bodhi/issues/2913">https://github.com/fedora-infra/bodhi/issues/2913</a>

I don't know of a way that integration is useful, but I wanted to see
if others thought it was useful. So, do you find it useful?

Not useful.
Notifications for my own actions (comment added, etc) are of course useful
(also show up as notifications, not sure if this shares code or just
appearance).

I just find those notifications annoying and pointless. This feature could
possibly be useful if it were filtered so that only activities relevant to
me in some way (to be defined) show up (but even then, what is the
probability that they happen while I happen to file a Bodhi update?), but as
it stands now, the notification popups are a mere annoyance.

So IMHO just drop this feature. Less code for you to maintain, and no more
annoying notifications (about events I don't care about) disrupting my Bodhi
usage.

Anecdotally, I can think of cases where they were useful, but mostly
by accident. For example, last week a colleague of mine happened to
notice me filing a buildroot override (which he also needed to do), so
he contacted me asking for guidance.

That said, such instances are few and far between. I agree with the
growing consensus that this is an unnecessary feature and if removing
it will make the code simpler to maintain, I'm all for it.

Can you explain what this "fedmsg integration" is? Is it just the popups
like "nnn created an update for yyy"?
If it's just that, from my side I can say I find those cute, but of no
practical use.

Indeed, the popups that tell you what other people are doing in Bodhi.

Another 'no' vote. I just find them kinda distracting and annoying. Was
there some kind of design rationale for them? Or were they just added
because 'hey, fedmsg is cool'?

it was the latter.

At least for me, it's the only way I know when my update submission
succeeds, because UI responsiveness is *really bad*. But beyond that,
it doesn't have much use to me.
