What is Codeship?
Manually installing dependencies, setting up build servers and dealing with different CI providers on all your projects is not only time-consuming it also increases the probability of human error. Codeship automates this entire process. As soon as you push code to your git repository the tests start to run and a webhook is fired off to your project dashboard in your CI provider of choice. With just a few clicks in your Codeship dashboard you can hook up a new branch or merge request and Codeship will automatically run your test suite. And not only that each test gives you a detailed report so you know exactly what’s been tested and what isn’t.
What is Gentoo?
Gentoo is a totally free Linux distribution. It uses the latest development tools and software technologies and is dedicated to quality rather than blindly following traditional usage patterns with binary packages and config files. Every part of Gentoo, including installation images, is free software; most of the source code is available to whoever wants it. Gentoo has been developed in an entirely open process, in which technical choices are made via discussion in email forums and IRC channels rather than by secretive members of some elite development cabal. Each package in Gentoo has its own maintainer who decides whether or not to include it; you are welcome to volunteer to Gentoo.
