I have now written a proof of concept[1] of how the integration of our few
DOAP files would look like at xmpp.org, there is a backend which exposes
just the data we need, and a JS script which presents that on the
website, without any additional dependency.

The code is available here[2].  I haven’t tried integrating it with
Pelican yet, but it’s just one script tag to add to a single page, and
for the XEPs another script to add to the XSLT, so that shouldn’t be
much work if we decide to go with it.

Feedback welcome!
