We’re working on Fedora Strategy 2028 — our next five-year plan. We are now reviewing those Objectives and their associated Impact. Read this guide for details on the current planning phase.
Focus Area: Technology Innovation & Leadership
This continues the theme of leadership — this time, technical leadership, embracing the “Features” and “First” foundations. As with the previous focus area under this theme, there are many different things we could do. We’ve selected some which we think will have a big impact, will drive contributor growth — and which, pragmatically, we believe we can effectively accomplish.
In addition to the three proposed by the Council, we also have another suggestion to evaluate (see below). And I’ve heard of at least one other idea which might fit a as well. The strategy2028 draft already has a lot of parts, and I don’t want the plan to grow much larger, but let’s worry first about the ideas on their own merit on this basis, and then we’ll figure out how to fit together the things we decide.
Objectives & Impact
|Fedora is a popular source for containers and Flatpaks.||Fedora is a trusted source of software beyond our own base OS, reaching more users and potential contributors.|
|Immutable variants are the majority of Fedora Linux in use.||New way of doing things brings excitement and new energy.|
|We integrate programming language stack ecosystems.||Developers choose Fedora Linux because we provide a straightforward programming environment that works the way they expect.|
Additional (or alternate) proposal

The work at hand:
- In this topic, discuss the overall focus area and how the three Objective / Impact pairs fit in. If you think we should re-word or re-orient “Reaching the World” to better describe the concept, this is the place. It’s also where we want to identify any crucial alternate or missing Objective / Impact ideas that fit the focus. Please review “What if something is missing?” — we already have an ambitious plan, so ideally we should now be looking at adjusting alignment and scope rather than brainstorming new ideas. But if there’s something very important that we’re missing, now is definitely better than later.
- In separate topics per Objective (and associated Impact), discuss and validate each:

As outlined in the roadmap, this post will close in one month.
