Fedora is a flexible, extensible, open source repository platform for managing, preserving, and providing access to digital content. As a community-supported project, Fedora is made possible through the combined efforts of a distributed technical team and an active governance group made up of representatives from stakeholder institutions. Over the past year, these groups have developed a structure and process for working together to define and execute the strategic plan for Fedora. Most recently, this resulted in the release of Fedora 5.0 and the publication of a formal API specification. Next, these groups will design and develop Fedora 6.0, which will feature better performance and scale along with a greater focus on digital preservation via the adoption of the Oxford Common File Layout. This panel, featuring representatives from the Fedora technical team and governance group, will describe how they were able to define a structure and process to work collaboratively with a large number of people on a common strategic plan. The panel will also outline the features and benefits of the next major version of Fedora.
