This is a summary of important goals for the Fedora Engineering team for Red Hat Fiscal Year 2018 (March 2017 - February 2018).
Please note this is not a comprehensive list. Many team members have numerous additional goals for contribution to the project. In addition, all team members work with the community ad-hoc throughout the year to troubleshoot problems, mentor new contributors, and create additional opportunities for community participation.
While Red Hat employees on the team are accountable for the progress of these goals, each one is fully open to the community to participate. Contribution is essential to achieving these goals, and we want and need the community's help! In Fedora, there is no such thing as "someone else's problem." We are all part of the solution. The indicator of a lead person shows accountability for whatever work the Fedora Engineering team has committed to. It may not be the same as a person leading an overall project.
The release engineering priority pipeline includes additional back end technical work going on in Fedora teams.

Team High Level Goals
- Plan for and deliver high quality kernel for upcoming Fedora releases
- Improve team efficiency and community collaboration
- Increase participation in upstream kernel community
Specific action items will be derived from these goals.
|Increase upstream kernel reviews and bugfixes. Upstream is continually looking for additional patch reviews. By increasing our participation there we can help avoid bugs. We'll also use this to increase our team's overall knowledge by gaining a deeper understanding of various focus areas within the kernel.||Upstream|
|Publish various communications about the Fedora kernel. The kernel is often a hot topic in various communities. We'll look at continuing the upstream Fedora patch reports, and possibly writing articles for Fedora Magazine.||Collaboration|
|Community Outreach The Fedora kernel community has several active members but could always improve. Through efforts like Outreachy, we can grow the understanding and expertise of interested community members.||Outreach|
|Improved popular platform support People like to use their hardware with a minimum amount of fuss. Look into ways to accomplish this for popular hardware.||Hardware enablement|
|Architecture support The primary Fedora platform is x86_64. However, there are always interesting things happening on other architectures such as armv7hl, arm64, etc. We'll investigate possible areas where we as a team can help further progress or provide solutions with these architectures.||Architecture|
|Upstream patch reviews and bugfixes||All||FY|
|Blog/magazine postings on kernel topics||All||FY|
