I must admit that I'm not so familiar with Google products, personal  
reasons, just avoiding those as much as possible. Not familiar with  
the other services either. I have to take a look. Yet, I'm not sure  
are all above mentioned open source, ie can I contribute to it. Is the  
development of platform itself open? What I'm after is  
community-driven development to achieve this platform. Ofc companies  
might have interest to participate. One of those reasons might the  
features that enable automatic (partial, not all inclusive) evaluation  
of project.

The biggest difference is most likely that CORAL (system loosely  
described in blog post) is not a code repository, it used metadata  
from various source. People use a lot different repositories to store  
and manage code and commits.

Again, I don't know if any of those gather information from any build  
systems (apart from their own, if they have one). CORAL would include  
OBS and alike as one source.

But as I said, I need to get familiar with other ready-made services  
and make comparison. Thanks for the feedback and critique. After all,  
this might just be another alternative for existing somewhat similar
