Hi Kev.

The plan is to run it on Github pages so the only change that is needed is
a DNS change
<https://help.github.com/articles/tips-for-configuring-an-a-record-with-your-dns-provider/>
.

Background: In building the new site, I really wanted us to have something
that can be more community driven: fixes and quick deployments so that site
gets more love and attention and the content stays fresh.

The current workflow
<https://github.com/xsf/xmpp.org#contributing-new-content-and-updates>:

commits/pull-requests  -> travis-ci for building
<https://travis-ci.org/xsf/xmpp.org> -> auto-deployed on Github pages branch


As you mention this does raise two interesting problems:

   - https://xmpp.org/extensions/diff/ seems to hang on loading the XEP
   list. Is this in active use? Would it be possible to put this on it's own
   subdomain like tools.xmpp.org?
   - http://xmpp.org/extensions/*  we'll need to update the site generation
   script to also build the XEPs. I'll have a look at this in the morning when
   my brain is more fresh.

I'm partial to the "launch and try to patch things up later" but we
definitely need the XEPs :)

S.
