Yes, but....

If Fedora-the-OS doesn't exist, how many of these do? mirrormanager may,
or may not. (As of now, I suppose you could classify it as an upstream
project hosted at FH that we use.) Fedora classroom? Probably wouldn't
exist. And generally, the ambassadors would not be ambassadoring without
the OS.
