I really like the initiative, while cms.apache.org is handy I think the gh-pages repo looks neat plus we can continue to use git and not archaic svn :)
I think we can then perhaps have an automated way to build the gh-pages branch and copy the htmls to cms etc. Should we also use Jekyll based website since the link (http://apache.github.io/cloudstack/) will be built automatically by Github (need to confirm, if it allows for non-master branches)? I’ve some Jekyll based experience, my website too is hosted on Github and uses Jekyll.
