Fedora Development SIG

Proposed Charter

  • The purpose of the Development SIG is to make Fedora a very good development distribution. The goal is to produce a great development distribution "out of the box" providing needed tools for both upstream developers and Fedora maintainers. We want to make it easy for developers -- both those experienced and new -- to get started developing with and for Fedora.
  • The Development SIG will develop and release the "Fedora for Developers" live image and will work with Fedora release engineering on propagation / distribution.
  • Releases of the "Fedora, Developer Edition" live image will follow Fedora release cycles.
  • The "Fedora, Developer Edition" live image will be composed from packages from the Fedora Package Collection. Fedora Project infrastructure will be used in all aspects. When appropriate, defaults may be changed to improve the user experience.

Meetings will take place in the #fedora-meeting irc channel on Freenode, on Tuesdays at 18:00-19:00 UTC (2pm-3pm EDT) (see


Proposed agenda for the fourth meeting (2007-09-11):
