Lead the advance of Free/Open Source Software/Content as collaborative community
The three elements of the Fedora mission are clear:
- The Fedora Project always strives to lead, not follow.
- The Fedora Project consistently seeks to create, improve, and spread free/libre code and content.
- The Fedora Project succeeds through shared action on the part of many people throughout our community.
User base (also known as target audience)
Among our other goals, we strive to create a distribution that is not only open to contribution but also serves the needs of a wide audience of users. By meeting the common needs of a wide audience, Fedora encourages the spread of free software, understanding of its methodologies, and participation in its processes.
Our Core Values
The Fedora Project's core values, or Foundations, are set out here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Foundations
We strongly believe in the bedrock principles that created all the components of our operating system, and because of this we guarantee that Fedora will always be Free for everyone, everywhere, to use, modify and distribute.
Fedora is more than just software, though. It is a community of contributors from around the world, including volunteers and Red Hat employees, who work with each other to advance the interests of the free culture movement. Everyone is invited to join and, no matter what your skills are, we have a place for you in our community! The Fedora community includes software engineers, artists, system administrators, web designers, writers, speakers, and translators -- all of whom will be happy to help you get started.

We believe that all contributors should be excellent to each other. By creating an environment for constructive contribution, we can more effectively and successfully compare and challenge different ideas to find the best solutions for advancement, while building the size, diversity, and strength of our community.
