"this has changed" would be on commits@.  But yeah, I do not like having
to push the entire site, and going through the web interface to do it.

I think that is in trunk/templates.  I've been wondering why this move to
Maven didn't involve just copying the templates and other files to Git.
Did you try to implement a port to Bootstrap at the same time because you
had to, or was it an option?

I don't think it is a race.  We are just experimenting with various
options.  I saw an old mail where Harbs tried to get GitHub pages up.  I
don't know of any other current alternatives.  It really is a matter of
whether it is worth your time since nobody else seems to have time to
help.  I'm definitely not a fan of ASF CMS, I just am wondering if it
truly needs replacing right now.  Would it be higher impact to the project
to work on Generics support instead?
