I don't see any problem here at all. From time to time the html files will
get of sync with the *.qbk files. To sync them up, one of the developers
generates the new html and pushes it to the master branch - game over
and easy as pie. Best of all - nothing more to distribute. Anyone using
the incubator link will automatically be using the most recent version
on the master branch.
