The Community Platform Engineering group is the Red Hat team combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Check out our teams info here https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/cpe/

GitForge Updates

* We are tracking our progress here (nothing new added yet, fyi) https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Git_forge_update

* We are still doing a technical deep-dive with our own team on what we need from GitLab and will have a technical plan developed and publically available in the coming weeks - thanks again for your patience, this will take some time to map out.

* Fedora have also released a blog post https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/fedora-council-and-the-git-forge/and

* And the council are tracking the community issues in this ticket https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/292

* We are looking at ways to engage closer with the community too so I will have an *optional* office hours slot on #fedora-meeting @ 1400-1500 UTC every Thursday. Feel free to stop by and say hi! We can talk about Gitforge, or not


* F32 released! Congrats to all those who helped make this such an awesome release

* Lenovo are releasing Fedora as a standard desktop offering!

* CentOS 7.8.2003 was released for x86_64, aarch64,ppc64, ppc64le and armhfp architectures, including Cloud images (on https://cloud.centos.org)!

Data Centre Move

* Communishift is still out, est back online 11th May.

* Full amended schedule will be published week ending 8th May to hackmd & will be sent to the devel & infra lists.

* Connectivity is now in place in IAD2 and should be in place in RDU-CC over the weekend.

* In particular, a HUGE shout out to Stephen Smoogen who has been working all the hours in every day for the last few weeks/months to get this phase of the move operatoinal for the Fedora infrastructure - we would not be able to do this without you Smooge

* This is literally a two man team of Kevin Fenzi and Stephen Smoogen, who are carrying the weight of this infrastructure on their shoulders and are invaluable to the success of this multi-team and multi-month project, so thank you both.

* Given the pressures on the Infra folks, a general ask for patience if your ticket / request / ping takes a little bit longer to reply to

AAA Replacement

* The team will work with openSUSE to deploy FreeIPA + Noggin to deploy it in their infra before we do!

* This is really exciting and the team are looking forward to seeing how the solution works in another infrastructure!
