honestly, doing it or not just for this one is not critical

when automation adds a big change, yes
the idea here is so simple that no need to wait

I tested it in my asf-attic.github.io for oltu:
https://github.com/asf-attic/asf-attic.github.io/tree/source

works like a charm with just a few lines of shell script

I didn't take time to create a branch for review here, since this repo is not 
a real shared repo (and I was lazy)
but in normal situation, this would be in a branch so we can discuss if we 
want to merge the commit, or change it
(and now I regret not having created that branch, since it would have been a 
good demo of discussing before merging...
