Fully automated CI/CD solution for (not just) PowerShell content management in your Active Directory environment

Repository contains necessary files + installer that will create your own fully automated company CD/CD like repository, which can be used to manage the whole lifecycle of the (primarily) PowerShell content. So the only thing you will have to worry about now on, is code writing :-) Everything else, like code backups, validations, auditing, signing, modules generation, content distribution etc will be automated.
