We have formed the Fedora websites team, which discusses things on
Some have asked me who really owns/controls the websites. Is Marketing
accountable? Documentation? How about Infrastructure?
Here's how I see it, using this model:
* FDP is the umbrella project that is accountable for all content and
knowledge management across Fedora. We are growing as fast as we can to
cover all these areas.
* Marketing is accountable for our message, focus, goals, direction,
attitude, etc. As such, they are often responsible for the content and
design within the various formal Fedora sites.
* Infrastructure is responsible for maintaining the current backends of
the sites, and developing new stuff from their own ideas and as
responses to RFEs that are filtered to them by FDP and Marketing.
Does this make sense to you all?
cheers - Karsten
This list is for developers, maintainers, designers, and content
managers to discuss the various formal Fedora sites.
 Formal being a better word than 'official', and the formal sites
right now are fedora.redhat.com and fedoraproject.org.

Red Hat SELinux Guide
I read a linux magazine. In this particular magazine, it compared between
some various Linux OS.
In the fedora section, it identifies fedora as a least-stable OS of any RPM
And fedora has not yet really impressed europeans.
In my local LUG <http://strasbourg.linuxfr.org/wiki-public/>, im the only
one with the FC OS, most of them are using debian based OS.
We are planning in this february an "OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE
on 5-7 May 2006. similar to the german's "LINUXTAG". Im not yet communicated
about the amount of money being invested.
In June 2005, in karlsruhe there was a linuxtag. And fedora core was part of
the red-hat advertissement team. some developpers were present. Since i
stated before (from the particular magazine) that fedora core has not yet
impressed europeans, I wonder if there is a way to advertise fedora core. I
mean if i can ask some kind of association/company to send me free stickers
or any promotional material associated to FC to this open source event.
Yes, I live in France (Strasbourg <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strasbourg>).
I wish to know a little more about how it goes with the invitation of the FC
developpers and Marketing teams to our event knowing the fact that we don't
have a big budget, so that I could talk to the other members of my lug about
my plan to have a Fedora Core booth with real FC developpers and Marketing
The presence of a Fedora Core booth (even if its with the Red Hat Team)
could really attract and make aware to the public that Fedora Core is not
only a platform for developping the RHEL.
