I happened to see this thread late,

I would like to propose movinghttps://developer.sugarlabs.org/sugar3 
<https://developer.sugarlabs.org/sugar3> to 
<https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-toolkit-gtk3>'s GitHub pages. A live 
example of that would be here: https://dev.sl.srevinsaju.me/sugar3 
<https://dev.sl.srevinsaju.me/sugar3> built using GitHub Actions 
<https://github.com/features/actions> from 


* The documentation is built on every commit to master, and deployed to 
`gh-pages` or a branch of choice
* We host the static HTML version of the documentation using GitHub 
Actions, hence we can decommission developer.sugarlabs.org, which means, 
one less service we need to maintain. No more play with queues or docker 
builds, safer.
* Update CNAME on Sugar Labs's nameservers to make 
developer.sugarlabs.org as an alias of sugarlabs.github.io
* Update custom domain settings on 
https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-toolkit-gtk3 to point to 

Hence, we do not need to change any old links, as the links will still 
work, even if we discontinue the service on Freedom.

In my example / fork, I have added the script to sugar-toolkit-gtk3, and 
deployed the static docs to `gh-pages` branch. But, it is also possible 
to create a fresh GitHub repository: "developers.sugarlabs.org" and then 
add same script there, only that: the builds will now run on a cron job, 
instead of every commit to sugar-toolkit-gtk3. I suppose thats fine too, 
if we do not want to mess up with sugar-toolkit-gtk3 repository or keep 
it separate. In that case, we can make the repository at 
https://github.com/sugarlabs-infra. If the demo looks fine, let me know, 
and I will create a Pull Request to the preferred repository.

Let me know of suggestions, criticisms, pros and cons, or the need of 
any further information :)
