Heh. I noticed recently that gitlab was finally adding project pages like
github gh-pages.  I was gong to ask if this was available on
IIRC, these are essentiall static (mostly) html pages for your site so you
can host documentation and such.  I'd be interested in this since cmucl
hosts its html page elsewhere, and it'a somewhat of a pain to update them.

I'm interested!  And again, thanks for all your hard work on this!
