As an addendum to this, this paves the way nicely for a revamp of
api.kde.org, which could also benefit significantly from being
transitioned over to this.

The current infrastructure that supports api.kde.org has quite a few
issues, which makes adding new projects error prone, and also makes
the system in general quite brittle and subject to breakage.

If someone would like to work on this, please get in touch with us at
sysadmin at kde.org so we can start pointing you in the right direction!
