The Fedora Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are teams within the Fedora Project that do not meet the Project definition from the Defining projects page. The SIGs are sometimes a first stage in the development of new projects within the Fedora Project.

Contents

[edit] Introduction to some SIGs

[edit] Ada

Maintainers of Ada packages in Fedora are strongly encouraged to subscribe to the Fedora Ada mailing list. Anyone else who is interested is also welcome to subscribe.

[edit] Amateur Radio

Goal of Amateur Radio group is to improve the Fedora collection by adding packages for amateur radio (Ham Radio) operators and SWLs.

Amateur Radio SIG

[edit] Astronomy

Goal of Fedora Astronomy group is to gather people interested to improve support for astronomers and astrophysicists.

Astronomy

[edit] Audio Creation

Our goal is to make Fedora the best free/open-source platform for computer-based music production, audio mastering, and audio editing.

[edit] Big Data

The Big Data SIG, in grand Fedora style, aims to make Fedora the best platform for all things related to Big Data.

Bigdata SIG

[edit] Bug Triage

Fedora Bug Triage attempts to manage the flow of bug reports filed against other Fedora projects. They stand to prevent the other project members being overwhelmed by bug reports, eliminating trivial bugs, removing or correcting flawed or inadequate reports, and making sure that maintainers are able to get things done.

Fedora Bug Triage

[edit] Cloud

The Fedora Cloud SIG works to make Fedora successful on all major cloud platforms, public and private.

Cloud SIG

[edit] Desktop

The Desktop SIG strives to make Fedora a very good desktop distribution. The goal is to produce a more targeted desktop spin while maintaining traditional Fedora strengths such as security and commitment to free software. The Desktop SIG will develop and release the "Fedora Desktop" live CD

Desktop

[edit] Education

The mission of the Fedora Education SIG (Edu SIG) is to optimize Fedora for use by teachers and learners, both within and outside of the context of educational institutions.

We do this by building, maintaining, and evangelizing a strong ecosystem of educational packages within Fedora and by supporting learners in using these packages as tools to reach their curricular goals.

Education

[edit] EPEL

EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) is targeted at filling the gap between the complete Fedora Collection and the packages that are maintained in Enterprise Linux. We are a community of individuals focusing on package maintenance and infrastructure to provide as many packages as possible to the consumers of Enterprise Linux. The EPEL SIG is led by a steering committee.

EPEL


[edit] Erlang

The mission of the Erlang SIG is to encourage the packaging of Erlang projects in Fedora.

Erlang

[edit] FLTG

Any font or text-related activity can be tackled, as long as the result is free/libre and compatible with the Fedora objectives.

The current SIG task list is published here.

[edit] Formal Methods

"Formal methods" are techniques that use mathematics to prove that models of software, hardware, or systems will or will not have certain behaviors. To be practical, they must be automated using tools. The goal of the Formal Methods SIG is to make it easy to install formal methods tools in Fedora, ease learning how to apply them, encourage the development of "open proofs" (where an implementation, proofs, and required tools are all FLOSS), and to provide feedback to toolmakers so that the tools in Fedora can become more powerful, more scaleable, and easier to use together.
