Many Happy Returns of the Day (Fedora Turns Five)

“If you haven’t seen the lovely and festive new banner on the
Fedora home page today, check it out! Today is a celebration —
FIVE GREAT YEARS of Fedora so far. Yes, five years ago,
fedoraproject.org was officially born, which is, I think, a great
date to mark the occasion. Happy Birthday, Fedora community!

“I’m digging the banner especially, because it spells out what
makes Fedora great — our community of code and collateral
developers, contributors, and users. I’ve been part of the Fedora
community almost since it started, and I can look back on each year
and see the way this community has grown and thrived. We may not

contributions, support, time, effort, and devotion to software
freedom. You guys don’t just talk the talk, you walk the walk,
every day.
