About Fedora Workstation

Fedora Workstation is the Fedora Project's desktop edition. It aims to be a compelling desktop OS which is appropriate for a wide range of users and applications. Software development is a particular target for workstation, and it is particularly appropriate for those doing tech work.

Fedora Workstation is built on a technology base that is shared with the other official Fedora Editions, and is the product of work that happens across the Fedora project, including teams that work on common technologies and processes.

While the Workstation aims to share as much technology as possible with the other Fedora Editions, it is also a distinct technology and user experience, and is developed as a well-defined and integrated desktop experience.

Getting in touch

Diverse teams and activities (both downstream and upstream) contribute to the Fedora Workstation experience. Workstation-specific discussions happen on the following channels:

Historical Resources

The following historical founding documents are relevant to informing the mission of Fedora Workstation, but many parts are obsolete and they are no longer effective governing documents.

Fedora Workstation Working Group

The Workstation Working Group (WG) is the management and governance body for Fedora Workstation. Its roles and responsibilities include:

  • Defining the Workstation Edition, including which software is included.
  • Setting the Workstation's technical direction. This includes overseeing and advising on technical changes and initiatives.
  • Creating and tracking engineering initiatives, as necessary.
  • Acting as a point of contact for Workstation design and engineering issues.
  • Coordination and liaison with other Fedora teams and organizations.

The WG was created by (and is ultimately responsible to) the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo).

Membership

The Workstation WG appoints its own members. These currently include:

The WG can be contacted through the standard workstation mailing list and IRC channel, which are listed above.

Meetings

WG meetings happen weekly over BlueJeans. Calendar

IRC meetings may be held on occasion. Chairs: see the instructions for running WG meetings.
