Ground rules

Please read this.
Suggestions which don't follow these guidelines are far less likely to be considered.
  • The slogan should be short, 1-3 words.
  • The slogan should be an active sentence, like a command:
    • F8: Go higher
    • F9: Make waves
    • F10: Fire it up
    • F11: Reign
    • F12: Unite
    • F13: Rock it
    • F14: TBA
  • The slogan should be positive, and reflect the idea that Fedora helps the user achieve something great.
  • The slogan should reflect one or more of the themes from the #Artwork created by the Artwork team for this release.
  • It's more important to fit the artwork theme than the four foundations shown in the #Keywords section below.

Important ideas


  • Emergence
  • Multiple things combined to create a new, more complex one


F14 Artwork Theme Concepts has the final concept for F14 art. Note that the designers are not accepting new concepts; however, the current art is being further developed, and what's on that page is not yet final as of this writing.


  • The four foundations
    • Features
    • Friends
    • Freedom
    • First

"Solid Power!!!" David Ramsey Solid systems rely and require rock solid software.
"Weave" John Watzke Strands of thread weave into a greater form.
