Kinda. The site hasn’t been finished yet, and there was a lack of interest in finishing off the last couple of steps (sorting out all the needed redirects). Bear’s volunteered to do this, and I understand he’s Very Nearly done. As soon as he’s got the redirects sorted we can test it and then put into production.

When the topic of hosting on github came up, no-one was able to suggest a way of getting it hosted on github with all the necessary rewrites, TLS and things like the xepdiff tool running, so we’re left with needing to self-host it. I think that’s all in place and ready, and we just need the last bit of the site finished (the redirect list) so it can get put up.
