The website is out of date and does not link the latest distribution or documentation. (See also #1590.) We need jython.org to present up-to-date information to support the 2.7.2 release, from the availability of the beta release. Even a simplified site is better if it is up-to-date.

We would like to move management of the website source to GitHub, which will allow us to share updating it.

See discussions on the jython-dev list (e.g. https://sourceforge.net/p/jython/mailman/message/36238580/). I'm raising an issue to signal that we regard this as part of the 2.7.2 release, as important as any software fix.

Just wanted to point out (yet again) that the sphinx rst-source code of the website is available via links at the bottom of the website itself.

I would suggest a migration path based on existing source rather than writing a new website from scratch. Can't we just host the rst-source on github? IIRC read the docs is compatible with sphinx rst. Alternatively we could try e.g. pandoc to turn it into markdown for github pages, which does not directly accept rst AFAIK.
Main effort would be to have an easy build and update mechanism. Does read the docs support some automated process here?
