18 Release Engineering ("releng") is the official Gentoo project focused on
19 coordinating and improving the creation of official media releases of Gentoo
20 Linux and other Gentoo operating systems. It is also primarily responsible for
21 many of the tools used by the installation process, including <uri

23 link="installer/index.xml">Gentoo Linux Installer</uri>.

29 The goals of Release Engineering are to continually improve the quality,
30 timeliness and overall procedures for creating official Gentoo Linux releases,
31 as well as acting as the official coordinators for creating new Gentoo Linux
32 release media. This project is very much focused on ensuring that the initial
33 quality of every official release is as high as possible, and that the "from
34 CD" experience is as positive for as many of our users as possible.

59 Release Engineering maintains its own set of hardware for development, testing
60 and release building, as well as the porting of Gentoo Linux to new
61 architectures. Currently, this hardware consists of a dual-CPU 900Mhz zx6000
62 Itanium 2 system with 4GB of RAM on extended loan from HP, and a dual Opteron
63 AMD64 system built from parts donated by AMD, NVIDIA, The Gentoo Foundation,
64 and the Gentoo/AMD64 project. All systems are running Gentoo Linux. Access to
65 these is currently restricted to Release Engineering members. For other
66 developer hardware, check out the <uri
