The Xfce SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors that contribute towards Xfce in Fedora. Their mission is to define a high-quality Xfce experience to Fedora users and developers in maintaining packages, documentation, infrastructure and helping each other in all Xfce related efforts.

Fedora Xfce Spin

RahulSundaram initiated the effort to create a Fedora Xfce spin (A installable Live CD) for Fedora 8 and above releases. It is now maintained collectively by the Xfce SIG.



Joining the SIG

Joining the Xfce SIG is as simple as being part of Fedora and having a love for Xfce. Once you are a contributor to Fedora, you can join the SIG by adding your name above and communicating with the rest of the team in the usual Fedora channels .

How you can help

If you have no idea how to help us with providing a good and qualitative excellent release of Xfce in 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 user experience.
  • Reviewers: Only a few persons are doing the xfce-related reviews. Help us reviewing so that more packages could be included.
  • Testers: If you love Xfce use the development version or the updates-testing repository and report bugs, bugs, bugs, request enhancements or features. We need your feedback to improve Xfce.
  • Bugs: Become a BugZapper and help us with Xfce related bugs.
  • Documentation writers: Make sure that documentation of Xfce is high quality and complete in Fedora.
  • Release Notes: Help with writing the release notes
  • Wiki: Maintain and keep it updated with end user information.
  • Artists: To provide a matching theme for nodoka-theme and other Xfce related artwork

IRC Channel

We have informal chats about Xfce development in #fedora-devel IRC channel in freenode. Refer ["Communicate"] page for more information.
