Fedora SIGs

The Fedora Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are teams within the Fedora Project that do not meet the Project definition from DefiningProjects. The SIGs are a sometimes a first stage in the development of new projects within the Fedora Project.

Fedora Usability

Fedora Usability aims to provide coherence, accessibility and intuitiveness for all people using Fedora and its associated resources.

Fedora Bug Triage

Fedora Bug Triage attempts to manage the flow of bug reports filed against other Fedora projects. They stand to prevent the other project members being overwhelmed by bug reports, eliminating trivial bugs, removing or correcting flawed or inadequate reports, and making sure that maintainers are able to get things done.

Any font or text-related activity can be tackled, as long as the result is free/libre and compatible with the Fedora objectives.

The current SIG task list is published here.

Store

A SIG devoted to getting a store running, both for users looking for one-off purchases and for Ambassadors who need swag in bulk.

Astronomy

Goal of Fedora Astronomy group is to gather people interested to improve support for astronomers and astrophysicists.

Robotics

The goal is to bring packages of open and free software related to robotics and educational software for robotics into Fedora and make Fedora fit to power (mobile) robots.

Fedora Package Collection related SIGs

Among the goals of the package collection related SIG's is to gather competence (probably even authority) and interest, to collect and propose specific packaging guidelines and policies, to create something like work groups inside the Fedora Project which are in charge of specific areas of interest.
