No problem - I have signed up to help you guys. Unfortunately it seems
I am the only mentor who responds. As i just have a difficult project
for the next two weeks you might get some delayed e-mails from me, but
I always try to respond. If you don't hear of me in a matter you need
help, please ping me. I want a new Ripple version!!! :)

I think thats pretty easy then. Because Infra would use svnpubsub and
that should be straightforward. I have not set up a svnpubsub
repository so far so we might need some fixes of what we do now. My
suggestion is that we create a folder in SVN similar to Cordova. Just
commit your site to there. When it is done we'll request svnpubsub
from infra here:

They will tell us what fixes we need to get started.

svnpubsub is basically: we commit to a specific svn folder, and the
apache "svnpubsub thing" does an update to our webfolder. We are not
required to copy something to web directories or so.

i think the team can already think about the tooling - I might want to
recommend (which is similar to jekyll). it is done by at
least one ASF committer I appreciate very much and looks very flexible
to me. That said, there is no restriction to your tooling, use
whatever you want.
