How is Fedora Organized?

Fedora Organizational Chart

Fedora is a big project, with many moving parts and dozens of groups and subgroups. This chart gives a general overview and a sense of how things fit together. The Fedora Council is our overall leadership and governance body. Most of the project is then roughly organized under FESCo (the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee) or the Mindshare Committee.

Engineering teams includes a list of technical teams and initiatives, most of which operate under FESCo.

Since many groups are rather informal, don’t take the chart as written in stone. Also, if it is a little overwhelming, don’t worry. Fedora is a friendly project — just pick an area you’re interested in, introduce yourself to the people involved, and get started. Or, if you don’t know where to start, see how to get involved.
