Getting started

Congratulations! You’re the new Fedora Program Manager. Whether you’re new to Red Hat, to the Fedora Community, or both, there’s a lot to learn. Here’s a list of things you’ll need to get started:

Fedora Account System (FAS)

You can’t do much of anything in Fedora without this. Visit the account signup page to create an account. If you already have one from your previous work with Fedora, then you’re all set.

FAS Groups

  • elections — Used to manage the elections.

  • council — Grants access to Council-related things

  • gitfedora-project-schedule — Grants access to the schedule.adoc project on fedorapeople.org

Mailing lists

Community mailing lists

Some you can self-subscribe to, others you will need to be added to. You can join as many lists as you’d like, but at a minimum you should have these.

Red Hat mailing lists

Pagure groups

Other tools

  • Smartsheets — This is where the schedule.adoc magic happens

  • Product Pages admin access — This is the Red Hat internal tracking tool for products. To request access, go to RT and click Create new ticket for "program management".

  • Bugzilla — You will also need to request membership in the editcomponents group so that you can modify the Fedora component as needed.

More Red Hat internal setup information is in the Engingeering Program Management Guide.
