Gardener CI/CD Documentation

This documentation describes how the components of the Gardener project are produced. See the linked documentation for more details on Gardener itself.



Gardener is tightly integrated into GitHub. In particular, each Gardener Component is represented by exactly one GitHub repository. Releases of Gardener Components are represented by GitHub releases.

As is common practice in the Kubernetes eco-system, the main deliverables of each Gardener Component are container images. Each release of a Gardener Component thus also encompasses a Component Descriptor, which declares references to any container images that have been created for a given component release.
