Release Name History

Prior to Fedora Linux 21, releases had code names. This page documents the history of release names.

Release name relationships

Name n and n+1 must share an "is-a" (not a "has-a") relationship, but n and n+2 must not share the same is-a relationship as n and n+1. The release names we put up for vote tend to have multiple meanings so as to allow us to select a new name with a different relationship for the next release. It is part of the fun!
