Once the site is back up we should look at migrating to a better (hosted)
infrastructure. I suspect that Github Pages won't work, we'll exceed or be
close to exceeding both the 1 GB site size limit and the 100 GB/month
bandwidth limit [1].

Rough bandwidth estimate (using page size from
http://scipy.github.io/devdocs/ and Alexa stats): 2 million visits per
month, 2.5 page views per visit, 5 kb/page = 25 GB/month (html). Add to
that pdf docs, which are ~20 MB in size: if only a small fraction of
visitors download those, we'll be at >100 GB.
