drain is getting sh** out of the system.

The basic idea is to have a small model that apps can use to send notifications, and then have a common UI for folks to observe those through various channels.

A rough draft for the notification would be:

  • author
  • when
  • url
  • subject
  • message
  • properties, aka, many-to-many for key-value pairs

The filtering would mostly work on the key-value pairs.

Not sure if there's anything out there that can do feeds, mails (preferably including daily/weekly digests), in-page notifications.

Also, if this is pulse, or if pulse should be a secondary outlet of drain is unclear.

This is tracked in bug 563823.
