What is Spinnaker?
Spinnaker is a multi-cloud continuous delivery platform that provides an interface for defining immutable infrastructure, deployment automation, application updates and visibility into the end-to-end lifecycle of applications. Spinnaker helps developers to deploy to any cloud environment effortlessly by providing pull-based deployment model. Spinnaker automates application deployment via pipelines, which are assembled by the user from task pods. Tasks in a pod are executed sequentially to cause a change in the system, such as deploying an application version.
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.
