This investigation’s goal is to address tech debt of github2fedmsg application. github2fedmsg application is used to translate events emitted by github to fedora messaging messages using github webhooks. It also has database of projects to watch and provides web interface to add new repositories. It authenticates with FAS and Github, linking accounts together.
The app has git-hub2fedmsg bot on GitHub that is being used to link the FAS account to Github.
