I don’t think it’s necessarily a case of needing to self-host them, just of checking that we make a considered decision.

The current site isn’t orchestrated, as it’s wordpress - I’ll be glad to see the back of that. Assuming it’s just a simple `make` or equivalent, it shouldn’t be hard to run it on the server if that’s what we decide to do.

I can see that that’s appealing. I’d have thought we could script the server to pull from the repo, build and deploy every hour or whatever, if we wanted (not quite as smooth, but close).

xmpp.org’s served over HTTPS - I’m not sure how to host on github with appropriate certs (or whether it’s possible at all).

Will do.
