# CPE Weekly: 2020-03-06
The Community Platform Engineering group is the Red Hat team combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Our goal is to keep core servers and services running and maintained, build releases, and other strategic tasks that need more dedicated time than volunteers can give.
For better communication, we will be giving weekly reports to the CentOS and Fedora communities about the general tasks and work being done. Also for better communication between our groups we have created #redhat-cpe on Freenode IRC! Please feel free to catch us there, a mail has landed on both the CentOS and Fedora devel lists with context here.

#### GitForge Decision
* After evaluating over 300 user stories from multiple stakeholders we have aligned on a decision for the Gitforge that CPE will operate for the coming years. We are opting for Gitlab for our dist git and project hosting and will continue to run pagure.io with community assistance.
* Check out our GitForge decision on the Fedora Community blog https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/
* And at the CentOS blog page https://blog.centos.org/2020/03/git-forge-decision/
* Keep an eye out for mails in the coming months to the devel lists as we plan transitions and next steps with GitLab
* We would like to express our sincere thank you to all who contributed requirements to us!
As always, feedback is welcome, and we will continue to look at ways to improve the delivery and readability of this weekly report.
Have a great weekend!
