Thanks for the reply/clearing things up Kev!

Hopefully after a few months of 301s being in place we can swap to using
github alone to simplify things? (since we can always go back to
self-hosting if needs be).

We could then use travis CI to rebuild XEPs for free on each commit / PR
which would publish automatically. Would take a load off the iteam, and
make everything public/open (in theory if there were any problems anyone
could spot and create a fix).

Looking forward to seeing the new site live, everyone that worked on it did
an awesome job \o/
