This SOP is not complete!
If you have time, please write this SOP by looking at the Fedora 13 announcement and filling in notes on how to create the F14 deliverable.


This is a Marketing SOP that describes how to write a final announcement for a Fedora operating system release. According to the task schedule, the release announcement must be ready to occur on release day. Work on the announcement can begin at any time but its peak window of productivity is 17 days prior to release. It should be complete by a week before the operating system release.


You can see examples of past final release announcements at Final announcement.

Or check out the Final announcement template


Step 1

Gather information on this upcoming release and its features.

  • Read the beats and look for features that excite you.
  • Check out the Fedora Weekly News
  • Alpha and Beta reviews also give insight on what Fedora users like.
  • Interview those who worked on the new features in this release.

Step 2

Start writing on the wiki

Thank the developers, porters, project leaders, Fedora contributers, and Red Hat employees who made the features possible.
