Here’s your weekly Fedora report. Read what happened this week and what’s coming up. Your contributions are welcome (see the end of the post)!

Fedora Linux 35 will reach end of life on 2022-12-13.

I have weekly office hours on Wednesdays in the morning and afternoon (US/Eastern time) in #fedora-meeting-1. Drop by if you have any questions or comments about the schedule, Changes, elections, or anything else. See the upcoming meetings for more information.


  •  Due to a lack of candidates, the Fedora Council election will be delayed by one week. The Mindshare and FESCo elections will continue as scheduled.
