This makes a great deal of sense. Unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, none
of the Maven generated sites are checked in. That's probably because Maven
does so much (e.g. site:deploy) that it doesn't occur to people (including
myself) to take the extra step and check in the generated site.

I'm not aware of an actual policy that requires this, but it wouldn't be a
bad idea. Perhaps I'll bring that up on infrastructure@. In the meantime,
it would be a good policy for us to introduce to Commons, at least, while
we're in the process of sorting out our own web site infrastructure. I
will add something about this to the wiki page when I get a chance.
