The Fedora Websites initiative aims to improve Fedora's image and to create the best possible interface for users and contributors on the Internet.

About Fedora Websites
The key goals of this effort include:
- Trying to consolidate all the key Fedora websites onto one uniform scheme
- Maintaining the content that doesn't fall under any particular sub-project
- Generally, making the sites be 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 with 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.

The mailing list behind this effort is the fedora-websites-list mailing list. All contributors to this effort and interested third-party site maintainers should join this list.
The #fedora-websites channel on freenode is the best place to go for chat.
Details about the regular meetings for the Fedora Websites team can be found on the Meetings page.
CSS and Images
One can find all CSS files and images used in the Fedora sites on the web. And we encourage the community to use them directly from our urls in a cascading implementation.
This is especially true when working on official fedoraproject.org domains ( things on this list ):
Fedora CSS in your application
Load the main Fedora CSS file
And then load your custom css file and override elements as needed. Something like:
Fedora Images in your application
Images simply need to be loaded via their 'href' attributes' url:
