"Fedora Foundation...Not the Right Answer," Declares Linux Vendor Red Hat
The Foundation Will No Longer Take Over the Distribution of "Fedora Linux"

"Red Hat has been supporting a free Linux distribution for over ten years, and Red Hat will *always* support a free Linux distribution," wrote Fedora project leader Max Spevack in a posting to the Fedora Project listserv last week. In the detailed posting he wet in to outline that Red Hat was "restructuring" the Project...and disbanding the Fedora Foundation.

The key passage of Spevack's posting read as follows:

"When we announced the Foundation, it was with a very specific purpose, and in a very specific context. The announcement was made by Mark Webbink, who has been the intellectual property guru at Red Hat for a long time now. His stated goal for the Foundation: to act as a repository for patents that would protect the interests of the open source community.

Once we announced the intention to form a Foundation, people inside and outside of Red Hat were interested in working beyond the stated purpose -- an intellectual property repository -- and instead saw this new Foundation as a potential tool to solve all sorts of Fedora-related issues. Every Fedora issue became a nail for the Foundation hammer, and the scope of the Foundation quickly became too large for efficient progress.

A team moved forward to create the Foundation itself. We created the legal entity, came up with some very basic and flexible bylaws, and appointed a board to run it temporarily. This all happened pretty quickly, because this was the easy part. We had articles of incorporation in September 2005.

Then came the hard part: articulating the precise responsibilities of the Foundation. This conversation took months, but ultimately it came back around, again and again, to a single question: "What could a Fedora Foundation accomplish that the Fedora Project, with strong community leadership, could not accomplish?"

So here, in order, were the possible answers to that question -- and why we found, in every single case, that the Fedora Foundation was not the right answer.

Spevack detailed five key reasons why Red Hat wants to move to Plan B.

This is not to say that Fedora is going away, the idea of the non-profit legal status of such a foundation to support Fedora is going away, to be reborn into the Fedora Project Board which will now have complete authority over the Fedora project, including budgetary control.
