This is a summary of the work done on initiatives by the Community Platorm Engineering (CPE) Team in Red Hat. Every quarter, the CPE team works together with CentOS Project and Fedora Project community leaders and representatives to choose projects that will be being worked upon in that quarter. The CPE team is then split into multiple smaller sub-teams that will work on the chosen initiatives + day-to-day work that needs to be done. Some of the sub-teams are dedicated to the continuous efforts in the team whilst some are created only for the initiative purposes.

The Community Platform Engineering Team is a Red Hat team that is working exclusively on community projects. Its members are part of Fedora Infrastructure, Fedora Release Engineering and CentOS Infrastructure teams. This team works on initiatives, which are projects with larger scope related to community work that needs to be done. It also investigates possible initiatives with the ARC (The Advance Reconnaissance Crew), which is formed from a subset of Infrastructure & Release Engineering sub-team members based on the initiative that is being investigated.
