The content will be generated by the build/html directory from Travis.
If Travis is green we upload the doc, if Travis is red, we do not
publish it. If there is an abuse, we close/drop the PR, maybe Bedevere
can receive this notification via the webhooks and notify the server to
remove the doc.

Currently, we use Travis. The malicious code will be execute in the
container of Travis, not on the server. We only copy the static files
and if we use nginx/apache, we don't execute the .py files. Just serve
the .html,.css,.js files
