FWIW, the MirBSD website is kept in CVS and generated with
some (BSD) make and mksh scripts, then rsync’d to a webserver
and its mirrors. I chose to not use post-commit hooks for that,
but it would certainly be possible.

(There are three CGIs in it that are just installed as-is, and
there’s a – let’s call it libgd frontend – that’s written in php
because, at that time, I couldn’t get libgd to work for me in C
directly, probably due to version difference, but I’m planning
to rewrite it in C once the new libgd version is stable; it’s
mostly used to produce png files that contain pre-rendered text
because we use a specific font for a “corporate” identity for
MirBSD (Gentium), and web font support is not very wide-spread
(maybe nowadays it is), so this is an entirely optional component.)
