Hi Cameron,

I'm happy to give a hand with this. Jakob and I already emailed in
private about this. Maybe it is easier to have a chat about this?

Some things I would want to know is the goals you want to achieve. For
example for qgis-docs we wanted:

- site to be responsive (to be able to show it on phone or small help
widget on desktop)
- docs also be able to create as pdf's for printing
- one source (rst)
- ability for a language to have localized images (by having a separate
resources/images tree directory)
- translation via transifex
- buildable on several OS's (easiest via docker)
- custom template + css/less (shared with/looking as website)
- automatic pulling of translations and daily building of docs (and sync
to webserver)
- ...

Nowadays I would add:
- add md also as source ability (so easy editing in Github, but to be
able to have indexes you end up with mixed rst/md sources then)
- images relative (so they are visible in Github, like you now have)
- stay as close as possible to vanilla Sphinx scripts and templates

So: please let me know what it is that osgeo-live wants, and off course:
every item makes stuff complexer :-)

This is current build yes? http://live.osgeo.org/en/index.html
