Within the Fedora project, there is a mailing list that perhaps doesn't get as much attention as it should: advisory-board. The name itself seems a bit cryptic, but this is the place that the Fedora Project Board has public discussions. It's the place where board proposals get hashed out in public, and it's a good place to bring items to the attention of the board. Come and join the conversation!
These are my first two books: X Power Tools, a thorough guide to the X Window System (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596101954) and Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distro, a practical hands-on book on Fedora (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596526825).
Fedora Linux is also available for online reading through Safari and in downloadable PDF format from oreilly.com
