Yeah, we're using this as an "under cloud" service. Our notifications are only
consumed internally, so it's not a multi-tenant/SaaS solution.

However, there is a team within Rax working on this SaaS offering:
Peter Kazmir and Joe Savak. I'll let them respond with their lessons on
Great, thanks Sandy. It would be good to see what this is (is it just Zaqar? or something totally different).
AtomHopper is an atom-pub server (it's open source: http://atomhopper.org/ ), we use it with Repose (http://openrepose.org/)
to support Keystone auth, etc. We use Yagi to read notifications from the rabbit queues and publish notifications in Atom format to a feed.
We've been using this setup internally for a couple of years now. As Sandy mentioned, Peter and Joe are working on the project to provide these Atom feeds to end users.
>Sandy, do you have a write up somewhere on how to set this up so I can experiment a bit?
AtomHopper: http://atomhopper.org/ (java warning)
The StackTach.v3 sandbox is DevStack-for-Notifications. It simulates
notifications (no openstack deploy needed) and it has Yagi set up to
consume them. There's also Vagrant scripts to get you going.
and some, slightly older, screencasts on the Sandbox here:
We're in the #stacktach channel, by all means ping us if you run into problems.
Or if a Hangout works better for you, just scream :)
Thanks for the help!
