One thing I've just remembered is that https://www.mesa3d.org/archive/
serves all the tarballs for Mesa releases. Given how Pages is
structured, we don't have a good way to redirect these to the old
server, so the Pages repository needs to hold all the tarballs. This
probably suggests to me that the site should live in a different repo,
where we can just commit all the tarballs.

I reflexively didn't love the idea of committing tarballs to a git
repository, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea.
It makes it more clear where they're coming from, makes the provenance
easier to verify, gives us audit logs of who put them in, and so on.
