Or just upload the zip file to the server-live-preview-doc and unzip the

for the subdirectory by PR I am not sure but we could have an issue with
the cache of the browser because we will use the same domain, but this
solution can be created in few hours. +1

For the subdomain, no problem with the cache, just update the DNS, but
we can have an issue with the propagation of the DNS if the TTL is high.

We could use Bedevere, not sure but I think it can receive an action
about the merge of a PR. Once merge, we execute the clean process ;-)
