(This week's report will be a brief update, written by Laura Hampton. Sumana will return later this week.)   

We are continuing to approach the Launch: Redirect pypi.python.org to pypi.org milestone[1]. The redirect is scheduled to happen on Monday, April 16th.  The Warehouse team has been busy closing and responding to issues from legacy PyPI [2], and Dustin is already preparing to remove the beta banner from Warehouse when we reach the Launch milestone[3]. Ernest is working on load-testing infrastructure in anticipation of the launch. We have continued to work on user testing[4], improving accessibility[5], and making changes based on our testers' feedback[6]. Thank you to Nicole for running the tests, and to everyone who helped test and contributed feedback.   

You can help this week by opining in our "needs discussion" issues [7]. If you have expertise in JavaScript, please consider looking at our frontend testing approach[8].  If you are new to the project, please check out our issues labeled "good first issue", or consider contacting Nicole about being a subject or interviewer for user tests[9].  If you will be at PyCon US in Cleveland next month, we will be sprinting, and we'd love to have you join us[10].

Thanks to Mozilla for their support for the PyPI & Warehouse work![11][12]
