Systému účtů projektu Fedora

The Fedora Account System keeps track of Fedora Project contributors and the projects they work on. It is used to grant authentication and authorization to various components. This currently includes the various git pkgs repositories and Bugzilla. Note that accounts are separate, as FAS can only grant additional privileges to existing accounts. Thus, you should register for with the same email you use for your Fedora Account System account.

Používání Systému účtů

The main Fedora Accounts page. It mostly just links to:

  • Exporting the email aliases happens hourly, on the hour on bastion hosts.
  • Exporting git and shell accounts happens after users change information, and usually takes 10-20 minutes to complete.
  • Exporting the Bugzilla fedora_contrib group from the 'fedorabugs' group happens every 10 minutes.

The account system code is available at The project page is at

Many of the Fedora sub-projects require an account in the Fedora Account System for contributors. The system allows management of contributor agreements, group memberships, a single sign-on usable throughout Fedora services, and more.

In short, if you wish to contribute to a project which uses FAS accounts, you need an account. If not, you do not.

Co je dohoda o přispěvateli?

This is an agreement that helps to maintain Fedora's free and open source status by making certain that all contributions to the project are properly licensed, and ensuring that all contributions are available under an open source license, even if one is not explicitly declared. For more information, see Legal:Fedora Project Contributor Agreement

The FPCA replaces the former Individual Contributor License Agreement.

Co je SSH klíč a proč ho potřebuji?

SSH , short for Secure SHell, allows cryptographically authenticated and encrypted connections between computers. SSH is used to tunnel Git connections for the Fedora Project. Whenever you use Git with the Fedora Project, the transaction will be performed through an SSH connection. Your SSH key will identify you to the Git servers, and host keys on the Git servers will allow your computer to verify the remote server, too. An SSH key is only needed if you are planning on contributing source code or content, working on Fedora Project website pages, or using

Požádal jsem členství ve skupině a to má status neschválené, co to znamená?

New group memberships require approval from the group administrator or a group sponsor. Different groups handle this differently. See the appropriate project pages for the group for the specific process. Some projects, such as PackageMaintainers, will require you to have a dedicated sponsor or complete a certain procedure. Other groups may grant your request as soon as they get around to it.

If you wish to deactivate your account for some reason, simply edit your account to remove all personal information, and mark the account as "Inactive."

Marking an account inactive
Once you mark your account inactive, you will be unable to use it for any authentication in Fedora. Make sure this is what you want to do before deactivating the account! (Inactive accounts can be reactivated by attempting to login to FAS through the Web site. A password reset is then required to reactivate the account.)

Z důvodu

Malicious usage may result in account termination. Individuals using multiple accounts without prior written approval will have all but one account terminated.

Users will be warned by email before any accounts are terminated.
