Can you point me to the information concerning the main site being
required to be served from SVN? The FAQ [1] for the Confluence wiki
explicitly covers using a dump as a project's main site, so I can't
fathom that we wouldn't be able to pull in a subdirectory from outside
SVN. The restrictions covered in the FAQ are that we can't put user
contributions into a release tarball or in SVN, but no one is
suggesting that since it'd require all contributions to be covered by
an ICLA or similar.

AFAICT, this would be equivalent to us mirroring the coverage reports
generated by buildbot.
