Relationship to Fedora - Amazon Linux 2022

Amazon Linux 2022 is in preview release and is subject to change.

Relationship to Fedora

Major releases of Amazon Linux will be based in part on the current version of the upstream Fedora Linux distribution to use the package variety and updates that Fedora provides, though Amazon may add or replace specific packages from other non-Fedora upstreams. Linux kernel will be sourced from kernel.org’s long-term support choices and will be picked independently from Fedora. Preview version of Amazon Linux 2022 will be based on Fedora 34, and the generally available version of Amazon Linux 2022 will be based on Fedora 35.
