Fedora is awesome, great tech, great people, high standards, and the best enthusiast distro. But it's also difficult to use as a base for building on, and that's where the excitement is now and in the future. This talk presents a proposal for refocusing the core Fedora distribution as a platform, while including layers of modular enabling tech within a broader Fedora umbrella, with greater autonomy for SIGs in their own areas. This will make Fedora a stronger base for remixes and spins, an easier target for developers, enable upstream communities to work in Fedora while retaining their own conventions and culture, provide a better app UX for end users, and will put Fedora in the center of interest in computing today.
