The Fedora Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are teams within the Fedora Project that are less formal than official subprojects. The SIGs are sometimes a first stage in the development of new projects within the Fedora Project.

Creating a SIG

A SIG is a lightweight structure with very little red tape. If you're interested in forming one, see Creating a Fedora SIG.

Introduction to some SIGs


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.



The AI/ML SIG is a coordination point for people and groups working to improve AI/ML tooling in Fedora. Anyone interested is welcome to join us on Matrix or Discourse.

Alternate Architectures

The purpose of the Alternate Architecture SIGs is to promote fedora on different architectures.

Currently there are active teams for:

The following teams are looking for members:

No longer active architectures are:

Amateur Radio

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



The goal of this SIG is to help the folks working on support for ARM-based Apple Macintosh computers (otherwise known as "Apple Silicon Macs"). And to produces an image for those that want to run Linux on Apple Silicon devices.



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


Project Atomic is now sunset
As of 2020, the Atomic SIG is dormant and has been for some time. The content of this page and others related to Atomic are preserved for historical reference and because some of the content is still useful and relevant, but the group is not active or holding meetings. Fedora CoreOS is the replacement for Atomic. Fedora Silverblue is the replacement for Atomic Workstation.


The Fedora Atomic Working Group works to bring integrate new OS technology and tools from Project Atomic into Fedora.

Atomic WG

Audio Creation

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

Audio Creation

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

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

Continuous Integration

The Fedora Continuous Integration SIG develops test automation system for Fedora. As well as tools and workflows for generic Continuous Integration.



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

Cloud SIG


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



The DNS SIG attempts to improve name resolution implementations available on Fedora. The goal is to have fully-featured and privacy enabled name resolution, while still working on all common networks. Both on servers and workstations.



The DotNet SIG is a group of Fedora contributors that maintain dotnet (and related) packages in Fedora. The goal of this group is to help to anyone interested in dotnet and to support others in creating and maintaining dotnet packages. Anyone interested in C# / dotnet is welcome!



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.


ELN (Enterprise Linux Next)

The ELN SIG maintains ELN buildroot and compose



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.



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



FLTG (Fedora Language Testing Group) takes care of the Fedora testing activities: take initiative to conduct the Fedora test days, update necessary wiki pages, prepare test cases, get things coordinated and organized for the testers.



A page of the Fonts Special Interest Group

The Fonts Special Interest Group is an informal group of Fedora Linux contributors. It is dedicated to improving fonts availability and text rendering/layouting in the distribution and its other Linux derivatives.

Join us and help:

Fonts SIG activities

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.

Fonts in Fedora
The Fonts SIG takes loving care of Fedora fonts. Please join this special interest group if you are interested in creating, improving, packaging, or just suggesting a font. Any help will be appreciated.

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.



Goal of Games SIG is to make Fedora the best Free software and open source gaming platform there is for both developers and users.

Package Review

This SIG is currently in its infancy and things are still being organized. The job is to process new package review submissions and review them for quality and adherence to the Packaging Guidelines. As this is the initial experience for many new contributors to the Fedora Project, we also work towards making this procedure as enjoyable as possible. Anyone is welcome to join. Obviously it is necessary for one to already be a packager in order to review packages, but there are many tasks that can be done by anyone, and participation in the SIG is a good path to sponsorship.

SELinux Confined Users

People who use and/or test SELinux's user confinement in Fedora in order to improve SELinux policies to increase security and user experience (including for default Fedoras without user confinement). Also, the SIG aims to make the "confined user" capability as smooth as the Fedora default without confinement so that confinement becomes usable by average users. Additionally, the SIG aims to propagate the possibility/capability about user confinement but also about the possibility to easily contribute to that. This SIG is for all kinds of security enthusiasts, from beginners to SELinux experts. It is very informal: contributors might review the discourse topic (especially the opening post and this one) and say "Hi" in the topic. For any kind of help about user confinement or related reports, feel free to open a ticket in our pagure repo, or use the #confineduser tag in ask.Fedora for technical "how to get X done in Fedora Linux" questions. The SIG has no meetings.
