Communication in Fedora

As referenced on the Get Involved page below, Fedora is a massive global organisation with many people with different skills carrying out different roles. As you get involved you may need to find assistance and the Getting Help page can help you with that. This current page goes into more detail around the various communication channels within the Project.

Primary Channels


We now use Matrix/Element as the primary synchronous channel to speak to each other in real time.

You can find a list of the Fedora channels on Matrix here. Most of these channels are mirrored on IRC at Libera Chat.

Fedora Discussion

Fedora Discussion is the primary discussion forum where you will find all the latest news & announcements, as well as discussion about open source projects; workflows, and Fedora-specific offerings such as the Fedora Editions. See also under Getting Help.

Ask Fedora

Ask Fedora sits within Fedora Discussion and is the main community knowledge base and support forum hosted by the Fedora Project. Ask Fedora is a good place to go for support and troubleshooting help, as mentioned on the Getting Help page.

Other Communication Channels

As above, Fedora Discussion is now the primary platform for longer asynchronous discussions where short-lived chats may not be enough. Some teams do still use mailing lists though. The most significant mailing lists are:

For a catalog of all the mailing lists look at

Fedora Magazine is a great resource for user-facing announcements and cool stories about usage, features, etc…​

Fedora Community Blog brings you contributor-facing announcements and updates. Within the Community Blog you’ll also find Friday’s Fedora Facts. These are weekly posts with status updates, schedule info, etc..

The Fedora Pagure source control repository allows posting of issues which can be discussed, assigned and remediated. Here you can raise issues or view, comment on, and request to act on open issues.

There are a number of official and other social media accounts, on various networks. You can find details of these documented on the Marketing Social Networks Wiki page.


In all our interactions, we aspire to be excellent to each other. Read the Code of Conduct to learn more of what is expected of Fedora community members.
