What Is Fedora ?

An operating system, a set of projects, and a mindset.

The operating system is Fedora. It comes out twice a year. It's completely Free, and we're committed to keeping it that way. It's the best combination of robust and latest software that exists in the Free software world.

The mindset is Doing the Right Thing. To us, that means providing Free, open software and content, at no cost, freely usable, modifiable, redistributable, and unencumbered by software patents. Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in free and open source software. Fedora is always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute.

Pre-requisites to participate

The project day is proposed to achieve the getting together of existing Indian contributors (particularly perhaps the GSoC participants) in order to allow them to discuss their work and help in building new contributors. Base level understanding of Fedora roadmap and familiarity with some of the various Fedora subprojects eg. Translation and L10N, Documentation, LiveCD, Packaging would be good to have.


Application developers and packagers, extension developers, open-source evangelists & enthusiasts, localizers, security experts.
