Fedora Linux is built on the foundations of Freedom, Friends, Features, & First
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.
The Fedora Project's core values, or Foundations, are Freedom, Friends, Features, & First. Read more about them here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Foundations
A key component of this is our Community. This community, which you will join as an participant in Google Summer of Code, is creating a platform that supports the work of a diverse audience. Your contributions can affect people you've never met in situations you've never dreamed of. 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.
