About Us

The Infrastructure Team consists of dedicated volunteers and professionals managing the servers, building the tools and utilities, and creating new applications to make Fedora development a smoother process. We're located all over the globe and communicate primarily by IRC and e-mail.

Communicating

The Infrastructure Team coordinates their activities using a variety of tools. Our primary methods of communication are weekly IRC meetings, the IRC channel #fedora-admin located on irc.freenode.net, and the mailing list.

Meetings

We hold weekly meetings in #fedora-meeting each Thursday at 19:00 UTC.

See the Meetings page for details and historical archives.

IRC

You can find core members and contributors on irc.freenode.net in the #fedora-admin channel. (Need help?)

Mailing list

The mailing list for the Fedora Infrastructure project is: infrastructure@lists.fedoraproject.org .

Contribute to Fedora Infrastructure

Fedora is known for creating and using new technologies. The Infrastructure team helps build many of these new technologies and uses many of them on a regular basis. We are always interested in discussing these technologies from an academic and theoretical perspective.

If you're ready to work with the Fedora Infrastructure team we're looking for smart, dedicated system administrators and developers to help maintain our systems and write code. The Fedora Infrastructure team is a perfect way to give back to the community! So what are you waiting for? Take a look at our Getting Started page.

Our Architecture

An overview of our technical Network Architecture is available online. Contact 'admin@fedoraproject.org' for any general questions and someone will point you at the approprate contact for that area.

Fedora Services

The Fedora Infrastructure team develops, deploys, and currently maintains various services for the Fedora Project.

Do you have a desire to work with us on a project and need resources? Then please read our Request For Resources section.

Note, for scripts and services written especially for Fedora, we have a policy on using the GPLv2 or LGPLv2 for everything we write. If you would like to use a newer version of these two licenses or a different license we need to discuss it because of various incompatibilities. Check the Infrastructure Licensing policy for details and answers to frequently asked questions.

Standard Operating Procedures

Working on a ticket and need to remember which commands to run to create a new hosted project? Or notice that a service is down and want to troubleshoot what's wrong with it? The Category:Infrastructure SOPs pages contain instructions on common situations that could crop up and how to go about resolving them.

Bugs

Bugs related to Fedora Infrastructure are tracked in a Trac instance for Fedora Infrastructure at https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/. More information about access and usage of this system can be found at Infrastructure Tickets
