Last Known Membership

This was the home for the Environment and Stacks working group which is the team of people working on making Fedora the preferred platform for software development and deployment in any language or application stack. This working group was focusing on the so called "Ring 2" of the future Fedora, as described by Matthew Miller in his talk about Unlike other working groups, this group did not produce a specific product. Rather, along with the Base working group, it was supposed to help design the shared core on which everything is built, as well as "building blocks" on top of that.
