The Fedora Project is led by contributors from across the community. Different functional areas of Fedora at times evolve, build, or dismantle their own formal leadership over time. Because Fedora is an open source project, it encourages new contributors to identify problems, find solutions, and collaborate with other members to achieve results. This process results in community members recognizing able leaders from among their peers.

The Fedora Project aims to have a thin layer of governance that enables decision making without excessive drag. The individual accountable to Red Hat and the community for the Project overall is the Fedora Project Leader (or "FPL"). The following are current examples of leadership groups in Fedora.

Fedora Project Board

The Fedora Project Board is the topmost governance body in Fedora, and is made up of appointed and elected members from across the Fedora community. Details about the Board such as size, constitution, and succession planning are detailed on this wiki page.

Fedora Engineering Steering Committee

The Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) is a community-elected body empowered by the Board to manage the technical features of the Fedora distribution and specific implementations of policy in the Fedora Project. Details about FESCo such as size, constitution, and succession planning are detailed on this wiki page.

Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee

The Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee (FAmSCo) is a community-elected body that supports and enables the work of Fedora's Ambassadors worldwide. Details about FAmSCo such as size, constitution, and succession planning are detailed on this wiki page.
