Low tech indeed! But, the manual work involved is a pain. I think we
should consider laminar[1], a light-weight continuous integration tool,
that is much more minimalistic and elegant than big CI systems such as
Travis. We just need to provide laminar with shell scripts. There is
even a Guix service for laminar. So, deployment is really easy.

Is it possible to set this up with savannah and GNU's servers? If
not, could we consider setting up laminar on one of our own servers
outside GNU?

Yes, agreed. But, we should probably host web versions of the manual for
both the current stable release and the bleeding edge development
version. This is what many Python projects do, after all.
