For the RICG we made the "gh-pages" branch the "master" branch. And master just contains README.md.   

This has the advantage that:    

1. master can be basically forgotten about… it's just "another" branch, after all.   
2. we can publish straight away.
3. we can add a CNAME to it with a nice URL, for example:


That solves most of the problems with linking, slowness, and has low overhead: once you "git checkout gh-pages", you can forget about it and just keep pushing changes.

See, for example:
