This talk is part of the Open Source Software Series
A great opportunity for building communities around OSS software is getting involved with the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is a 100% open source, cutting edge Linux distribution, sponsored by Red Hat, that provides an easy entry point to expose projects and ideas to a wider audience.
In this session, attendees will learn how to get involved with the Fedora Project and make their upstream software applications distributable to millions of Fedora users and to help them gather contributors. Topics covered will include how to get started with the account system, useful mailing lists, RPM packaging, resources provided by Fedora Hosted Projects, the build system, release cycles, project advertising, building software for Enterprise Linux, and where to go for other resources.
Host: Laurie Williams, Computer Science
