The Fedora Project is an openly-developedproject designed by Red Hat, open for general participation, led bya meritocracy, following a set of project objectives.
The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux communityto build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusivelyfrom open source software. Development will be done in a publicforum.
The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Coreabout 2-3 times a year, with a public release schedule.
The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate inbuilding Fedora Core and will invite and encourage more outsideparticipation than in past releases.
By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operatingsystem more in line with the ideals of free software and moreappealing to the open source community.
