The Fedora Infrastructure

The Fedora infrastructure is the team of dedicated volunteers and professionals maintaining the servers and some of the services used to build Fedora as well as enable its community.

We’re located all over the globe and communicate primarily by IRC and e-mail.

Officers

The team has officers for a number of areas, please consult with them on matters under their area:

  • Infrastructure Lead - Kevin Fenzi

  • Security Officer - Patrick Uiterwijk

  • Development Manager - Pierre-Yves Chibon

  • Quality Engineering - Tim Flink

The officers generally decide what needs to be done in the day to day operations of the various Fedora infrastructure facilities. The officers themselves work for the developers and end users but ultimately report to the Fedora Project Council. This basically means that we’ll try to do whatever we can to fill needs and fix things but if we refuse for whatever reason, the final decision can be made by the Fedora Project Council. Such decisions, however, are rare.

For more information on our officers and governance method see our Officers page.

Communicating

The Infrastructure Team coordinates their activities using a variety of tools. Our primary methods of communication are weekly IRC meetings, the IRC channel #fedora-admin[?] located on freenode.net, and the mailing list.

Application development efforts take place in the #fedora-apps[?] IRC channel, and system administration related efforts take place in the #fedora-noc IRC channel.

Meetings

We also hold weekly meetings in #fedora-meeting[?] each Thursday at 14:00 UTC. See the UTC Howto for instructions to convert UTC to your local time.

See the meetings page for details and historical archives.

IRC

You can find core members and contributors in the #fedora-admin[?] channel.

Additionally, for things specific to application development and testing we have the #fedora-apps[?] channel, and for things related to alerts/outages and general sysadmin tasks the #fedora-noc[?] channel.
