And that goes back to my original statement about solutions - we tell them
what to do.  Infra has tools in place.  They've deprecated old tools and
want new tools to be used, so we make that the norm for podlings.  Assuming
no build requirement, we seed a git repo from the apache-website-template
and have them fill it in with info, or create a skeleton off of
apache-website-template that has it done.

I'm even inclined to think forking apache-website-template to
incubator-podling-template makes the most sense, and make the edits there.
It would have all of the branches set up and a base page that infra can
point to.

FWIW, Jekyll is pretty heavily used across projects.  I didn't use it for
the incubator website due to the file parsing that's needed, but for the
static content it would be fine.
