Fedora is a community; Fedora Linux is our OS

When I talk about the Fedora Project, I’m talking about you: the community. The Linux distribution we make is great, but the community is the key. When people say “Fedora” without a qualifier, I’d like them to think “Fedora Project”, not the bits we produce. What’s more, we make more than just one thing — EPEL, for example, plus artwork, documentation, websites, and tools which aren’t tightly tied to the OS itself.

Over the years, we haven’t done a great job of drawing this distinction. Now, let’s be more intentional with our language.

Fedora Code of Conduct Report 2020

The Fedora Project’s Code of Conduct and reports are managed by the Fedora Project Leader (FPL), Matthew Miller, and the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator (FCAIC), Marie Nordin, as well as the Red Hat legal team, when appropriate.

In 2020 we had more than two times the number of CoC reports when compared to 2019. Due to dedicating a lot of time and effort to these situations, we spent a significant amount of time trying to understand why this was happening at these rates. We came up with a couple of theories.

New “How Do You Fedora” video series to interview members of the community

A common answer to the question “What’s your favorite part about Fedora?” is often “the community”. Well, what’s so special about it?

The Fedora community shares the common values of the “Four Foundations”: Freedom, Friends, Features and First. Beyond that, although there are many great minds, not all of them think alike! Everyone contributes different approaches to problems, interesting ideas, and diverse perspectives. There is a place in Fedora for anyone who wants to help. 

That’s why we’re launching a new video series on the Fedora Youtube channel profiling some of Fedora’s various contributors and how they use Fedora. The goal is to get to know some community members better, especially in a time where in-person community events might not be practical.
