Well, I fear you may be in the wrong place. 

Fedora Infrastructure develops some of the applications used to build
Fedora and manages the servers running those applications. 

OS/drivers and such are developed in their own upstream projects. For
example the Linux kernel. 

Most of our applications are in python, we don't have anything in c++
that I can think of off hand.

So, if you want to work on device drivers and OS, you might look at
contributing to the Linux kernel, or for c++ applications you might
look at the gnome or kde desktop communities?

We would be happy to have you contribute to our setup, but it sounds
like you are looking for something lower level. ;) 

Hope that helps,
