It seems like Sourcehut supports everything requested, but I might be
missing something, of course.  In particular the CI is very nice and
simple, at least for the hosted version at https://sr.ht.  It also
supports running without javascript at all, so the libreJS debate should
be settled right there. Instead of me speaking on sourcehuts behalf,
with which I have no affiliation outside of being a happy customer
myself, I'll ping the creator.

@drew, should I or someone else create an issue over at sourcehut about
this or do you want to chime in here?  (apologies if contacting you this
way is inappropriate)

Hope this helps,
