When I joined the Gentoo Kernel Team, my initial focus has been on taking a closer look at the kernel releasing process and documenting it.  My investigations revealed that there was a discrepancy between the release steps followed by different developers.

As a result, I proposed a policy to follow a more standardized approach to making releases.
My study concluded that our team can automate kernel package releasing and testing, which frees up developer time to work on writing patches and fixing bugs.

The Gentoo Kernel CI has substantially decreased the time and human effort required to make kernel releases and enabled us to keep up with the upstream release schedule - something that wasn't feasible before the continuous integration. I will talk also about Gentoo Kernel Project future plans.
