# CPE Weekly: 2021-03-31
Sorry for the two week gap since my last report, we had a busy time in the CPE team with the new fedora accounts deployment, our quarterly planning cycle started for Q2 and Ireland had a bank holiday mid week which *seemed* like a great idea at the time. Until no-one knew what day it was for about a week!
So here I am, right at the end of Q1 with the CPE teams final weekly report for January, February and March... two days early :)
If you would like to see this report and toggle to the section you are most interested in, I would suggest visiting this link https://hackmd.io/8iV7PilARSG68Tqv8CzKOQ?view and use the header bar on your left to skip to where you want to go!

We are starting this project on Monday 12th April and will keep you posted on where the team will track work and what IRC channel they will use for comms.

## Team Info
The Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short, 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.
See our wiki page here for more information:https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/cpe/
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!
