We are just starting working.


We are working on form a group of people pushing and maintaining Deepin Desktop Environment in Fedora. Our mission is to define a high-quality Deepin DE experience to Fedora users and developers.

Suggested applications

As most of the packages are not in Fedora yet, we just started working on sending review requests.We have a tracker bug to track the related requests.

Here's a list of packages to work on a review request, since they have none or few not packaged dependencies in the whole series.

deepin-gtk-theme -
deepin-wallpapers -
deepin-dbus-generator deepin-go-lib
python-jieba -
python-dae python-jieba

How you can help

If you have no idea how to help us with making Deepin Desktop Environment into Fedora here are some proposals where we need help:

  • Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. Package it to improve the experience.
  • Reviewers: Only a few persons are doing the DeepinDe-related reviews. Help us reviewing the package requests to make things happen quickly.
  • Testers: If you want to try Deepin Desktop Environment use the development version or the updates-testing repository and report bugs, We need your feedback to improve it.

IRC Channel

As currently the packagers are mainly in China, we are now using #fedora-zh channel for discussion. The channel is bridged with Telegram channel @fedorazh. Although it is mainly a Chinese speaking channel, you can use English to get someone talking with you. We may have other channel as the group growing.
