Red Hat Project Now Fedora Project
Posted on: 09/22/2003 02:18 PM

The Red Hat Linux Project, as this used to be called, is merging with the Fedora Linux project. Thanks Spunz.

Red Hat and Fedora Linux are pleased to announce an alignment of their mutually complementary core proficiencies leveraging them synergistically in the creation of the Fedora Project, a paradigm shift for Linux technology development and rolling early deployment models.

We are <...> *thud*

One two ... one two ... testing, is this thing on?

Hello, this is, um, the Engineers speaking. We are still really excited about the project, but this time we have more than just dates. We hope fedora.redhat.com will answer lots of your questions, and are sure it will pose a few new ones.

Why Fedora?

Red Hat has a lot of experience in building solid dependable core distributions while the Fedora Linux Project has lots of experience in building effective infrastructure and policy to create many high quality add on packages. Both groups decided to merge the two projects and build outward using our shared experience, and to use the name "Fedora Project".

We don't pretend the merge will be smooth or immediate, but we firmly believe that working with the Fedora Linux Project will get external projects and add-ons up and running better and faster than we could on our own and we are proud to be working with them.

The Fedora Project is something special. It enables Red Hat and the community to work together to provide the community with rapid rolling releases and to get new technology into the hands of developers.

With the solid establishment of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat now has a platform for predictable change and high quality support for customers, and for our ISV and IHV partners. Fedora is about the community, about cool new technologies, and extending existing Red Hat tools in a collaborative community. Our new up2date, for example, supports YUM and apt-get repositories.

Fellow Fedorans, a new dawn is upon us, let us begin.
