Hi Alex,

Currently there is no such place, where you can just go with the browser, but 
just clone the flex-site repo and checkout the "asf-site" branch and you should 
have the working version locally.

Just open index.html with your favorite browser :-)

At least I just checked exactly that path and it worked as expected.

Betreff: Re: [Website] Progress on the Website-Generation topic

Is there a URL we can go to and see the results of this workflow?
