What is Jenkins X?
Jenkins X is an open-source project to simplify Jenkins CI with fewer moving parts. It is the official container-native CI for Kubernetes, ending the need for Jenkins masters and slaves by leveraging Kubernetes cluster resources. Jenkins X also makes use of GitOps to automate all changes through your environments via Git to enable a self-healing system that accelerates continuous delivery by enabling you to safely make changes and get fast feedback without the lag of manual intervention.
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.
