What's happening now

Current phase: #Get.fp.o feedback and #Spins.fp.o feedback


This is a project to redesign and that is being undertaken during the F12 release cycle by the Websites team with assistance from Design and Infrastructure.


Redesign the and sites in a way that fits the requirements. We will determine metrics for improvement during the feedback-gathering phases, but in general, we want more Fedora contributors, and our strategy for this is getting more Fedora users.

The Board's goals in the Website redesign are[1]:

  • To make Fedora fresh, attractive, and inclusive for potential participants and contributors
  • To more effectively promote a single instance of Fedora that satisfies the computing needs of the average person
  • To provide an improved showcase opportunity for Fedora spins created by the community
