I think you're right. Our goal was to remove ORGWEBPAGES/ into a new
repo with a proper history of its own. As Jason did that with

Jason, Carsten, what is your take on this?
I agree with Bernt.
Sorry, let me be more specific.
I am for moving the website to a separate repository. THis makes a
lot of sense. It does require to the release process though, because
my setup also used to update the webpage automatically.
But I think that Bernt is right that it would be much better for users
if the git repo remains in tact, so that moving simple means changing
the pointer to the repo, and that local branches will survive. So
simple removing the webpage from the repo with a commit sounds like a
good idea to me.
I don't think moving the webpage into a special branch is the right

org-mode repository then the SHA1's of previous commits will not
