Planet Fedora is a distributed communication tool that many Fedora contributors rely on to keep a pulse on Fedora's community. Contributors connect their blogs to Planet Fedora to express to the Fedora community their thoughts and personality, and share what they are working on through blog posts.

Joining Planet Fedora

The Fedora Infrastructure team administers the planet instance. Follow these instructions to aggregate your blog on Fedora Planet.

Appropriate Material

The Planet is a place for expression of many ideas. Not every idea needs to be promotional; some ideas may be controversial or critical, or evoke other mental or emotional responses. However, all posts to the Planet should reflect our commitment as a community to be excellent to each other. The following list contains examples of content that are not acceptable on the Planet, because they reduce the incentive for people to contribute in our community.

Material which is deemed inappropriate may be removed from the Planet without prior notice, although the Fedora Project's contributors do attempt to resolve every such situation constructively and amicably.

Depictions of nudity, near-nudity, or other adult material
Our contributors represent a wide variety of backgrounds and viewpoints. We do not want to unnecessarily restrict the audience of people who might become contributors in the future. These types of images can have a substantial negative effect on people's perception of the Fedora community, and their desire to contribute to it. Also, some types of material with mature subject matter may not be appropriate for all ages in our community. Therefore they are not appropriate for the Planet, whether they are featured in and of themselves, or as backdrops for other information.
Use of material that violates the owner's copyright
The Fedora Project always seeks to spread free software and content. We do this in part by promoting creation, use, and remixing of content that reflects our values, such as Creative Commons licensed material. We ask that all contributors respect the copyrights of content creators, and help us promote free content.
Reporting a problem
If you encounter material on the Planet that seems clearly inappropriate according to these guidelines, please notify us on IRC Freenode at #fedora-websites, or email the Fedora webmaster.

Reporting Bugs

If you have found a bug, please send an email to the Websites team including a description, screenshot (if you have one), browser name and version, and OS.

Test Matrix

We have put together a test matrix for the Planet's look and feel across browsers and platforms. Feel free to take a look at it, or help us to expand our coverage.
