The Community Platform Engineering group is the Red Hat team combining
IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Check out our
team's info here https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/cpe/
We are still actively engaging with the Fedora Council and have not
made any further progress with this project. We are focusing on
ensuring we have captured the most granular of requirements before
further engaging with GitLab by rereviewing what we have gathered so
far and requesting more specific technical clarifications on some.
We are also as a team discussing the best way to track the updates on
this project publicly and hope to have something published early next
week. We will send an email to the devel list as soon as we have
agreed and created this.
Thank you for your patience and engagement with us thus far.
