Fedora Release Engineering Standard Operating Procedures

This page documents the Standard Operating Procedures for Fedora Release Engineering.


The SOP section contains a list of tasks Fedora Release Engineering team provides for the project. Current Fedora Release Engineering team members would can add tasks they know about and list steps to complete the task as well as issues to consider. This is a great way to make sure that individuals aren’t the only ones that can fix a problem.

The Community

The SOP section is left in the public because it is our hope that others in the community will add common problems, fix our steps and just in general look over what we’re doing and help us when we’re doing something stupid. We encourage anyone interested to go over our processes with a fine tooth comb. It’ll make us better and we’ll probably learn something in the process. Therefore please open a pull request to suggest improvements.


Needed: #. Composing an official release #. Making a composed release publicly available
