Contributing Roles in the Infrastructure Project
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.
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.
We hold weekly meetings in #fedora-meeting each Thursday at 19:00 UTC.
See the Meetings page for details and historical archives.
You can find core members and contributors on irc.freenode.net in the #fedora-admin channel. (Need help?)
The mailing list for the Fedora Infrastructure project is: email@example.com .
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!
An overview of our technical Network Architecture is available online. If you have a question or constructive comment about our Network Architecture please send an e-mail to our [] inbox or stop by the #fedora-admin channel on irc.freenode.net.
The Fedora Infrastructure team develops, deploys, and maintains various services for the Fedora Project.

Please note that for scripts and services written especially for Fedora, we have a licensing policy and prefer using the GPL (v2) or LGPL (v2). If you would like to use a newer version of these two licenses or a different license please start a discussion through our regular meetings, IRC or the mailing list. The licensing policy page contains details and answers to frequently asked questions so please review it before asking us questions.
