About Us

The Infrastructure Team consists of dedicated volunteers and professionals who provide servers, tools and utilities for the Fedora Project. We are the people that maintain the servers that run the Fedora Project and create new applications to make development of Fedora a smoother process. We're located all over the globe and communicate primarily by IRC and our mailing list.


You can find the #fedora-admin channel on freenode . We also hold weekly meetings in #fedora-meeting. See the Meetings page for details.

Mailing list

The mailing list for the Fedora Infrastructure project is: .

Fedora is known for using and creating new technologies, the Infrastructure team often uses these technologies. As such we are always interested in discussing these technologies academically and theoretically.
