Subject Re: GitHub Pages

Several projects are using Jekyll to emulate the github style site
processing.  As an example: http://drill.apache.org/

THis is still a bit inconvenient in that the gh-pages branch has to be
built using jekyll and then checked into SVN, but it does work pretty
easily.  The process pretty much has to be manual because of the access
required to check things into SVN, but there is nothing else that requires
manual intervention.

This approach allows web site pull requests and reviews.  You can even
preview the site using github.
