The Fedora Cloud Special Interest Group

This is the home for the Fedora Cloud Working Group, where we are developing Fedora's next-generation cloud product. You may also be interested in the Cloud SIG, which has a broader, more loosely defined mission covering all things related to Fedora and cloud computing.

Quick Links

Fedora Cloud Atomic Image Download Links

The links below are meant to allow for users to have a "single point of download" so that the location may be stored or used in a scripted way to always download the latest image.

A couple of things to note:

  • The _latest URLs are simply 302 redirects to the actual image name and URL for the mirror network
  • The image that is actually downloaded will be unique for every release, it's name will be the same as is located at _latest_filename, which has been provided for easy scripting.

Example script:


image_name=$(curl -s
curl -L -o $image_name

ls -l $image_name
Image Latest URL Latest Filename URL
Fedora Atomic qcow2
Fedora Atomic raw
Fedora Atomic Vagrant libvirt
Fedora Atomic Vagrant VirtualBox
Fedora Atomic ISO Installer

Our Goals

The Fedora Cloud Working group leads the design and production of Fedora's Cloud edition.

Role in Fedora

The Fedora Cloud Working Group is a subset of the Fedora Cloud SIG, one of the many teams working on Fedora.

The Working Group is responsible for initial and ongoing development of the Product Requirements Document, and for coordinating production of the Fedora Cloud operating system.

We work with existing groups across the greater Fedora Project, and may delegate particular members to take responsibility for working with certain other teams. For example, a working group member may act as a coordinator for quality assurance or for release engineering.

Runbooks / Standard Operating Procedures

Let's keep track of how things work here so that we can help integrate new folks more easily.

Atomic SOPs and Runbooks

Atomic 2 week Release Criteria


This section will list the RFCs in progress or RFCs that have been accepted by the Cloud Working Group.

RFC: Rebuild Policy for Fedora Docker Trusted Images


It is our policy to default to open; wherever possible, all communications will be held in the open and archived for future public reference. In some rare cases, it may necessary for some members of the group to enter into non-disclosure agreements (for example, when working with public cloud vendors) but such circumstances should be minimal and not impact core decisions of the group.

Our primary forum for discussion is the Cloud SIG mailing list, Members also regularly are available in the #fedora-cloud IRC channel on FreeNode.

The Cloud SIG will work with other groups (Base WG, QA, Rel-eng, etc.) as needed to help deliver the final cloud products.

Mailing List


#fedora-cloud on Freenode.

Working Group Members and Points of Contact

At a later date we will likely establish a formal on-boarding process for new community members but at this time if you're interested in joining, simply add your name below either in the "General" section or under a specific sub topic and then reach out via the irc channel and mailing list to introduce yourself.

Release Engineering:



The Fedora Cloud Working Group has a weekly meeting. The meeting usually happens in #fedora-meeting-1 on and the schedule for the meeting can be found here:

You can find Meeting Minutes on the Fedora møte: meeting wrangler. Meetings are currently held every Wednesday at 17:00 UTC.

Quorum Voting Policy

At minimum 51% of the voting members of the Atomic WG must be in attendance in order to make decisions on meeting items. The definition of voting members is that of those who have self identified themselves as participants of the Working Group by adding their name here. A quorum vote is required to approve a decision on behalf of the working group, not simply the majority vote of those in attendance of any particular meeting.

Steps to run the meeting

  • #startmeeting fedora_atomic_wg
  • #topic Roll Call

Wait for 2 minutes for the roll call.

  • #chair all the people present for the meeting
  • #topic Action items from last meeting

^^ Find the last meeting log from (cloud_wg_logs:

Do the following for each ticket

  • #topic Ticket subject link_to_the_ticket

When all the tickets are over, go for Open floor

  • #topic Open Floor
  • #endmeeting

Upcoming Meetings, Agendas, and Chairs

Ideally we should have an agenda prior to each meeting that consists of any urgent business, action items from the last meeting (carry over if not completed!), and Trac tickets marked with the "meeting" tag. (See the Meeting report in Trac.)

We need someone to chair the meeting each week, and it's a good idea to come prepared to run the meeting rather than playing "who's the chair this week?" To that end, here's a list of upcoming meetings. Please call a spot if you're interested in chairing:
