Oh, that's all I was ever proposing; no disagreement here.  I was never
proposing *editing* via a web browser.  In a earlier post I gave the
same criteria you give -- I wrote:

Yes.  This is a pretty typical way of maintaining project web pages: a
post-commit / post-push trigger rebuilds the live web site HTML files.

Makes sense.  I wish I had time to help with the plumbing parts of this,
which are probably the hard parts (at least at first), but alas I don't.
