Qu'est-ce que le Projet Fedora ?

Le Projet Fedora est un projet communautaire international autour du thème des logiciels libres. Le projet Fedora consiste en une communauté promouvant du logiciel libre et éditant une distribution GNU/Linux nommée "Fedora."

Notre mission

La mission du projet Fedora est d'être pionnier dans la promotion et l'avancement des logiciels et contenus libres en tant que plateforme collaborative.

Élements de mission de Fedora

Les trois composantes de la mission de Fedora sont claires :

  • Le projet Fedora Project tente toujours d'aller de l'avant et de ne pas se contenter de suivre.
  • Le projet Fedora cherche continuellement à créer, améliorer et répandre les logiciels et contenus libres.
  • Le syccès du projet Fedora Project passe par la collaboration à travers notre communauté.

Nos valeurs fondamentales

Les valeurs fondamentales du projets Fedora ou Foundations, sont définis sur une page wiki propre.

Nous croyons fermement aux principes fondateurs de notre système d'exploitation, et pour cette raison, nous guarantisons que Fedora sera toujours libre d'utilisation, librement modifiable et redistribuable pour tous et partout de par le monde.

Our Community

Fedora is more than just software, though. It is a community of contributors from around the world, including volunteers and Red Hat employees, who work with each other to advance the interests of the free culture movement. Everyone is invited to join and, no matter what your skills are, we have a place for you in our community! The Fedora community includes software engineers, artists, system administrators, web designers, writers, speakers, and translators -- all of whom will be happy to help you get started.

We believe that all contributors should "be excellent to each other." By creating an environment for constructive contribution, we can more effectively and successfully compare and challenge different ideas to find the best solutions for advancement, while building the size, diversity, and strength of our community.

Our Method

Fedora is a center for innovation in free and open source software, and creates a community where contributors of all kinds -- developers, documenters, artists, system administrators, and other free software and open source enthusiasts -- come together to advance the ecosystem for the benefit of everyone. The Fedora community contributes everything it builds back to the free and open source world and continues to make advances of significance to the broader community, as evidenced by the regular and rapid incorporation of its features into other Linux distributions. Regardless of which Linux distribution you use, you are relying on code developed within the Fedora Project.

Why Is the Fedora Project Different?

We try to always do the right thing, and provide only free and open source software. We will fight to protect and promote solutions that anyone can use and redistribute. To this end, we use only free and open source software to power the Fedora infrastructure itself. With this in mind, all of our developers are focused on working closely with upstream development teams, so everyone can benefit from our work and get access to our changes as soon as possible. Due to the huge amount of innovation that Fedora drives, this focus has had significant and long lasting effects. Some of the recent developments in free and open source software that Fedora has driven include:

The reverse is also true: by sticking close to upstream development teams, Fedora often gets the latest software before anyone else. Not only does this benefit our community, but it also benefits the upstream teams by providing a much larger audience and more feedback for them.

Another striking difference of Fedora is our goal to empower others to pursue their vision of what a free operating system should be. Fedora now forms the basis for derivative distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the One Laptop Per Child XO, and Creative Commons' Live Content DVDs.

And that's not all. It is just as easy for individuals to create their own distribution, thanks to Fedora's easy remixing tools. These tools allow you to quickly select the packages you want, and create live images for CD/DVD or USB, or installation discs. Some official versions, or what we call "spins," of Fedora have grown up this way, including:

  • Fedora Electronic Lab (installable Live DVD)
  • Fedora Xfce Spin (installable Live CD)
  • Fedora Games Spin (installable Live DVD)

We believe software patents are harmful, a hindrance to innovation in software development, and are inconsistent with the values of free and open source software. While tightly integrating proprietary and patent encumbered components might superficially improve ease of use, this practice does not benefit the community in the long run. The Fedora community prefers approaches that benefit the progress of free software in the future over those that emphasize short term ease of use.

Joining the Fedora Project

Like what you see and want to help out? That's easy too! This page has all the information you need, and don't forget that all our contributors get access to some awesome tools to help them get their work done:

  • Fedora People provides free webspace for hosting Fedora related content
  • Fedora Planet is an aggregation of contributor blogs so you can see what everyone is up to
  • Fedora Hosted is the perfect location for hosting your free and open source projects
  • Fedora's own Gobby server, so we can collaboratively work on documents in real time
  • Fedora Build System to build your software across multiple architectures
  • The skills and experience of hundreds of fellow Fedora contributors!
  • Fedora Talk is a free hosted voice over ip (VOIP) telephone system

Qu'est-ce que la distribution Fedora ?

Fedora est une système d'exploitation basé sur le noyau Linux offrant un accès aux derniers développements issus des logiciels libres à ses utilisateurs de manière stable et sécurisé. Fedora est la contribution la plus visible parmi d'autres du projet Fedora. De par son importance, le terme "Fedora" est souvent utilisé de façon interchangeable pour désigner à la fois le projet Fedora et la distribution Fedora Linux.

Base d'utilisateurs

Parmi nos objectifs, nous cherchons à créer une distribution qui n'est pas seulement ouverte aux contributeurs mais qui sert à répondre aux besoin d'une vaste base d'utilisateurs. En répondant aux besoins commun de ceux-ci, Fedora encourage la promotion des logiciels libres, une meilleure compréhension de leurs organisations et la participation à leurs processus.

Comment obtenir la distribution Fedora ?

Simplement en visitant cette page puis en la téléchargeant. Vous pouvez l'essayer sans rien installer sur votre ordinateur, grâce à nos images Live sur CD ou USB. En fait, vous pouvez même créer une clé USB live depuis Windows !

Si vous avez une connexion internet lente, ou pas de connexion internet du tout, vous pouvez quand même obtenir Fedora grâce au programme basé sur le volontariat Free Media.
