Fedora 7

Fedora 7 will be the next release of Fedora. It is highlighted by the elimination of the distinction between Fedora Core and Fedora Extras entirely; there is only Fedora.

The name of the release is Fedora 7, unlike previous ones which featured 'Core' in their names (e.g. Fedora Core 6).

Documentation Project Schedule


Development freeze:: The package set is frozen. Only packages that fix significant issues found in testing are added to the tree.

Feature freeze:: All features must be complete in a testable state. Anything that's not will either be dropped or reverted.

String freeze:: Translatable Fedora-specific strings and user-interfaces should be frozen, to give the translators time to finish their work. No new strings should be added without notifying the L10N team.

Translation freeze:: Translations made until this date are guaranteed to get in the release. Translations after this may or may not make it in the release.

Release:: Availability for download.


Feature Schedule

If not stated, all features must be Testable by test 3, or risk eviction. All features must be fully functional by test 4, or risk eviction.

Absolute, must have features for Fedora 7 are enumerated here.

I've got this great feature idea!

OK. Are you going to work on it? Can you cajole/force someone else to be Accountable? Then we'll add it!
