Note that there is no reason not to have both. We know several
projects - e.g. pgadmin - has that. It's trivial to have a project
that's hosted on to automatically push mirroring to
github, and you can then use github download pages for example.

(The system is fully automated - if more people want to start using
it, I'll include it in the web interface)

No, definitely not. For one thing, the management stuff for doesn't scale that way at all.
