The Fedora Websites initiative aims to improve Fedora's image and to create the best possible interface for users and contributors on the Internet.
Contributing roles in the Websites Project
About Fedora Websites
The key goals of this effort include:
- Consolidating all key Fedora websites onto one uniform scheme
- Maintaining content that doesn't fall under any particular sub-project
- Generally, making the sites as fun and exciting as the project they represent
In order to better achieve these goals, as well as to benefit the community, the work of this project will involve third-party site maintainers where possible. The direct work of this project is limited to the formal Fedora site.
Work on specific sections of the sites will be coordinated by the appropriate projects. A great deal of coordination will be necessary with the Fedora Infrastructure Team , Fedora Documentation Project and the Fedora Marketing Project .
For a list of community websites, see the CommunityWebsites page.

Want to see a list of our open tasks? Take a look at our tickets
If you find something you'd like to take on, add a comment the ticket and add yourself as owner.
These tasks can vary from html/css changes to python scripting.
These are projects with specific goals actively being worked on for the F12 release cycle. They're in rough order of the priority discussed at the 2009-06-19 meeting, But remember, you decide priority by voting with your feet and doing things to move these projects forward.
Decision making process
Articulate and document the consensus-based decision making process of the websites team.

- Ricky to send a draft here's-how-to-present-your-patch-to-the-list checklist to the mailing list
Make sure all webpages are translated for the F13 release.
Team: Nobody yet! Please help!
(We aren't actually worrying about this until the end of July, but if you are interested in picking this up and keeping us from panicking then, that would be awesome. Please email the list if you are keen on this, and someone will respond to you.)
Create a gallery for mini-interview-style user profiles and stories. This may end up being in conjunction with existing projects/frameworks/pages such as Community.
Team: Hiemanshu Sharma (lead)
The mailing list behind this effort is the websites mailing list. All contributors to this effort and interested third-party site maintainers should join this list.
The #fedora-websites channel on freenode is the best place to go for chat.
Details about the regular meetings for the Fedora Websites team can be found on the Meetings page.
CSS and Images
All CSS files and images used in Fedora sites can be found in our fedora-web.git repository. The community may use the css directly from our urls in a cascading implementation.
We encourage using the stylesheets in a cascading method when working on official Fedora Project domains (sites on this list): Websites/DomainsList
Fedora CSS in your application
Load the Fedora CSS file fedora.css
And then load your custom css file and override elements as needed. As an example, something like main.css (as used for fedoraproject.org/wiki).
