They are on the website. This is for stuff that has no good place there.

Umm, I think its pretty clean and easy as it is.
There is one repo which is the source. And thats it. Anything that goes
on the website is in there. And the site is build out of that when
pushed. Whoever sends patches for the html has either not ever looked
before doing that - or its so small noone cares and one of the webteam
just does the change in the source and be done with it.
