## GitForge Updates
* We are tracking our progress here (nothing new added yet, fyi)

we need from GitLab and will have a technical plan developed and

patience, this will take some time to map out.
* Fedora have also released a blog post
* And the council are tracking the community issues in this ticket
* We are looking at ways to engage closer with the community too so I
will have an *optional* office hours slot on #fedora-meeting @

talk about Gitforge, or not :)

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
