About Fedora Websites

The key goals of this effort include:

  • Consolidating all key Fedora websites onto one uniform scheme
  • Maintaining content that doesn't fall under any particular sub-project
  • Generally, making the sites as fun and exciting as the project they represent

In order to better achieve these goals, as well as to benefit the community, the work of this project will involve third-party site maintainers where possible. The direct work of this project is limited to the formal Fedora site.

Work on specific sections of the sites will be coordinated by the appropriate projects. A great deal of coordination will be necessary with the Fedora Infrastructure Team , Fedora Documentation Project and the Fedora Marketing Project .

For a list of community websites, see the CommunityWebsites page.
