Jared Smith is stepping down from the position of Fedora Project Leader (FPL) for reasons currently unknown. Smith has been the FPL since June 2010, when he replaced Paul W. Frields who stepped down from the same position before him. In his mail Smith thanked "all those who have worked hard to help drive Fedora forward".
Smith's designated successor is Robyn Bergeron, who is employed by Red Hat and has previously held the position of Fedora Program Manager.
