I continued pondering this idea over the weekend, and started adding a
few more notes to
I think one of the key principles we'd want to establish is that we'd
like the developer portal to be a way for the Edition WGs language
SIGs to communicate effectively with folks building *on* Fedora,
moreso than with folks seeking to contribute *to* Fedora. There'd be
off ramps to sites like whatcanidoforfedora.org, but
developers.fedoraproject.org itself would be focused on the "I am
doing X, how can Fedora help me?" aspect.
In many cases, "X" would include cross-platform development, where
even if someone is using Fedora themselves, they're building for
deployment to environments outside the Fedora/RHEL/CentOS ecosystem
(e.g. mobile applications).
