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.

Would it be possible to include the PDF and zipped HTML as sources in
GitHub releases and (if desired) link to those on the documentation page?
That way only the individual HTML pages would need to be stored in GitHub
pages, reducing both the size and bandwidth.
