Fedora Futures

The Fedora Commons software is going through a significant amount of development to reach version 4. Compared to the prior version of Fedora, version 4 is almost an entirely new product. The bulk of the contributions in making this new product happen, the library has assigned two programmers to spend part of their time developing the new product. By developing these types of partnerships with open source communities we are able to steer the direction of the products and also contribute back to the larger community. 

In addition to programming, we are also providing support for advising the development direction of the product and writing/editing use cases.
