The Fedora release of Linux is maintained and developed by an open source project called the Fedora Project ( http://fedoraproject.org ). The release consists entirely of open source software. Development is carried out using contributions from Linux developers. The project is designed to work much like other open source projects, with releases keeping pace with the course of rapid online development. The Fedora Project features detailed documentation of certain topics, such as installation and desktop user guides, at http://docs.fedoraproject.org (see Table 1-1).
