The Fedora Project has been working on drafting its strategic plan to help shape the Linux distribution over the next five years. A draft of the plan written up by the Fedora Council has been published and is currently seeking community feedback on their road-map planning.

The three "themes" they have for the next five years to focus their work on is that "Fedora is for everyone", "Fedora leads in Linux distribution development", and that "we build on the success of Fedora.next."

Below is an initial draft of their five year plan, including a very ambitious goal of doubling the number of participants who are active contributors to Fedora on a weekly basis:
