Our draft is at:
We need your feedback and help in crafting a final version. Please reply
here in this thread to keep discussion in one place. We'd like to come to a
decision on this in Februrary.
there was already great feedback in this thread. Here is my proposal
based on the original vision, the feedback and my thoughts:
"Free and open-source software makes live better. We envision everyone
benefiting from the free and open-source software they need to have the
best life. The Fedora Project provides a safe space for inclusive,
welcoming and open-minded communities to build and distribute this
- "open-minded" is the adjective that should mean that we encourage
- This vision also focuses on actual benefits for people and not on the
software just for its own sake
- In the original proposal, "will be" in the last sentence implied to me
that Fedora does not follow this vision but only in a distant future
when it will be a reference.
What are your thoughts?
