Hi all, never posted to the list before, but I'm a happy user of the 
functionality lm_sensors provides.
I feel like the lm_sensors site being down isn't the best experience for new 
(and old) users ;)
I'd like to suggest to make use of the features GitHub offers to 
simplify/reduce the amount of work and cost needed to fix this and making 
sure keeping everything running/available doesn't depend on a single person. 
I have a fair amount of experience with it and want to help out.

My suggestion would be:
- Create an lm_sensors organization and add the necessary user as 
- Add a repo for the main sources
- Add a repo for board configurations (this is something I was already 
working on, could for now just host the configs from the wiki)
- Add a repo to automatically host the site from (github pages)

For each repository there is an included wiki, so I think it's easiest to 
add the initial docs there. Optionally the docs could be published to a 
proper website using github pages as well.

Let me know if this sounds good to all of you, hope I can help/do something 
back :)
