Fedora’s Strategic Direction: An Update from the Council

The Fedora Council met last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s a lovely city, but rather cold, so we largely stayed within the interconnected network of enclosed bridges known as the Skyway — and in our conference room working. One of our main projects was the draft below. This is a follow-on from our update to the mission statement last year. It represents the way the Fedora Council would like the Project to make that mission a reality — a guiding policy. We’d like wider community feedback on this approach (and the write-up of it), after which we plan to include the final version in the project documentation.

— Matthew Miller, Fedora Project Leader

Fedora’s Mission

“Fedora creates an innovative platform for hardware, clouds, and containers that enables software developers and community members to build tailored solutions for their users.”

We do this within the context of the four foundations: freedom, friends, features, and first.

Hello from your new Fedora Program Manager

Headshot of Ben CottonHi, Fedora Community! I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself as the newly-hired Fedora Program Manager. I’ve been a Fedora user for over a decade and a contributor in various roles almost that long. I started out on the documentation team as a writer and then led the team for a few releases. I’ve also maintained packages, dabbled a little bit in marketing (I know I’m way behind on that video ticket, sorry!), and helped promote Fedora through social media and articles on Opensource.com. Professionally, my background is largely in systems administration (with a strong focus on high performance computing in public cloud), but I’ve spent the last two years in marketing. I have a bachelors degree in meteorology and a masters degree in IT project management. I’m also an organizer for a local tech meetup and an occasional freelance writer.

I’m at Red Hat headquarters right now for new hire orientation. Once that’s done, I’ll return home to Indiana and start work. Several interviewers asked what I’d do first if I got the position. Here’s my plan: I’m going to listen. Sure, I’m familiar with Fedora, but I haven’t been able to pay as much attention lately as I’d like. So before I come crashing in with a list of things I want to do, I want to get a better sense for what the community needs from me. That’s a good idea for any job, but particularly for one where I’m serving the needs of a mostly-volunteer community.
