So, once an oauth is created the process, if we want to continue with a static site (even a complex static site) is - make a PR, PR approved,shows up shortly on openinfralabs.org.

Double checking - these are the links for the other projects (so folks on the email list may see some of those features):

What is the workflow like for them - same approach - change via PR?

    Thanks for adding us.  Currently your site is running on vuepress[1] and 
    the goal here was to update that to React using Gatsby[2] as the static 
    site generator and Netlify CMS.  We made that move primarily because of 
    problems we found with Vuepress as the other sites grew. Gatsby is a bit 
    more mature and offers additional features.  I noticed you recently 
    added your Manifesto in gitlab static pages and you can continue to use 
    those as you see fit.  However, you'll now have the option to use the 
    normal Gatsby pages / menu if you so choose - so you could add a new 
    section to your website and put it in the navigation menu.

    Netlify also it puts you on the same platform as other OSF projects 
    (Zuul, StarlingX, Airship, OSF.dev, and Kata). As a result, you gain the 
    benefits of growing functionality that all the other sites use (e.g. 
    blogging tools, author management, SEO management, etc...).  Netlify 
    integrates directly with gitlab[3], so when someone makes a PR or 
    updates via the CMS, the site builds automatically.  Additionally, the 
    CMS portion of this allows our marketing team to jump in and assist you 
    without using git - though anything commited through the CMS also 
    creates a PR before submission.

    Ultimately, it's your website, but we did want to get you as up to date 
    as possible to avoid running into some of the snags I mentioned 
    earlier.  I appreciate your patience as we rolled this out.  If you have 
    any further questions or concerns, please let me know.  We're here to 
    help... or to stay out of your way as you see fit :)
