Fedora Council statement on Richard Stallman rejoining FSF Board

The Fedora Project envisions a world where everyone benefits from free and open source software built by inclusive welcoming and open-minded communities.

A healthy community requires that we be welcoming and inclusive. For those in our community who have experienced harassment of any kind this past week has been painful and exhausting.

There is no room for harassment bullying or other forms of abuse in Fedora. We take our Code of Conduct seriously in order to ensure a welcoming community.
