Oh, sorry if I misunderstood the concern. Yes, I agree that putting this
under python.org would not be a good idea.

Either hosting it on a hosting provider like netlify (or azure if that's
possible) or a dedicated domain that could be created for the purpose
(e.g. python-doc-ci.org) would be best. Alternatively, the domain could
be skipped entirely and the github hooks could link directly to
documentation by machine IP (though I suspect buying a domain for this
purpose would be a lot easier than coordinating what's necessary to make
direct links to a machine IP reasonable).


Best,
Paul

I haven't seen any problems yet in the projects that do this, and I don't think it lends itself to abuse particularly well. Considering that the rest of the CI suite lets you run arbitrary code on many platforms, I don't think it's particularly more dangerous to allow people to generate ephemeral static hosted web sites as well.
