Welcome to the Fedora CoreOS issue tracker. This tracker will be used
to discuss new features for Fedora CoreOS and also important bugs that
are affecting the project. Tickets with the
meeting label will be
taken as agenda items during the meetings. This repo is to be used primarily
for development purposes. If you are a user and have questions please use
the forum or the mailing list.
Fedora CoreOS Working Group
Fedora CoreOS is an automatically updating, minimal, monolithic, container-focused operating system, designed for clusters but also operable standalone, optimized for Kubernetes but also great without it. It aims to combine the best of both CoreOS Container Linux and Fedora Atomic Host, integrating technology like Ignition from Container Linux with rpm-ostree and SELinux hardening from Project Atomic. Its goal is to provide the best container host to run containerized workloads securely and at scale.
The Fedora CoreOS Working Group works to bring together the various technologies and produce Fedora CoreOS.

Adding Packages to Fedora CoreOS
We often find people asking for a particular package to be added to the base set of packages included in Fedora CoreOS. One of the goals of Fedora CoreOS is to remain as lean as possible, without impacting overall usability for our users. Thus, new package requests are carefully scrutinized to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of adding an additional package.
If you would like to propose the inclusion of a new package in the base set of packages, please file a new package request.
The Fedora CoreOS Working Group has a weekly meeting. The meeting usually
