Red Hat Creates Fedora Foundation

Red Hat Inc. has decided to hand over control of the open-source Fedora Project, creating the new Fedora Foundation to manage the project. Mark Webbink, the deputy general counsel at Red Hat, of Raleigh, N.C., will make the announcement during a talk at the Red Hat Summit here early Friday morning.

Until now the Fedora Project, which Red Hat describes as an "openly-developed project designed by Red Hat, open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives," has been dominated by Red Hat staffers, with the technical lead and the steering committee all being Red Hat employees.
