The user base of Fedora has many aspects. Some people who contribute to Fedora are representative of a large portion of the user base. Others may be representative of a small cross-section. Fedora contributors understand that, while they are valued and important as Fedora community members, they may not be representative of a very large class of users who may find free software serves their needs as well. By understanding the nature of this larger class we can make good decisions about how to make Fedora work well for others besides ourselves.
The following sections describe the characteristics of this large class of users, and the Fedora Project will make process changes where appropriate to ensure we are meeting the needs of as many members of this class as possible.
