The Xfce SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors that contribute towards Xfce in Fedora. Their mission is to define a high-quality Xfce experience to Fedora users and developers in maintaining packages, documentation, infrastructure and helping each other in all Xfce related efforts.
Fedora Xfce Spin
RahulSundaram initiated the effort to create a Fedora Xfce spin (A installable Live CD) for Fedora 8 and above releases. It is now maintained collectively by the Xfce SIG.
Joining the SIG
Joining the Xfce SIG is as simple as being part of Fedora and having a love for Xfce. Once you are a contributor to Fedora, you can join the SIG by adding your name above and communicating with the rest of the team in the usual Fedora channels .
