Leadership Group

The Fedora Leadership Group is made up of members that contribute over $20,000 annually to the project, along with representatives from institutions contributing in-kind effort at approved levels. Members that contribute at lower levels can also be elected to serve on the leadership group.

The Leadership Group approves the overall priorities and strategic direction of the project by approving the annual budget and product roadmap, nominating and electing Steering Group members, voting on key decisions presented by the Steering Group, and helping to raise funds and secure other resources on behalf of Fedora.
