From Fedora Project Wiki

This page contains information about the Fedora Project at the Red Hat Summit 2013. You can compare this to the original vision for the event on its own page.

The Red Hat Summit is a conference where Red Hat converses with its customers. A Fedora presence supports the event by demonstrating the importance of community in the Red Hat ecosystem, but also benefits Fedora because Red Hat's customers are sometimes interested in looking at and contributing to Fedora once they find out about us.

The coordinator for the Fedora presence at Summit is Robyn Bergeron. The Summit-planning mailing list is also used to coordinate the logistics of prepping and attending Summit, and those intending to attend or participate in planning are encouraged to sign up to receive mail from this list.
