Added S3 support for pelican quickstart. #775
I think S3 is becoming such a big contender in the static hosting market since it has been gaining mainstream media press[^1] and Amazon directly supports it. Considering we already have so many options I don't think we hurt support taking our out of box upload support from %80 to %90. Most of the support issues from the makefile tend to be with edge case cross compatibility.
However, if we are to pull it in I think it it needs to be made crystal clear in the quickstart and documented that using this option requires external software and configuration in advance of use. The point here that we can't support s3 tools we have no experience or use with.
[^1]: I can't find it NOW of course but I happened upon two separate articles about fairly mainstream media using static hosting on S3 to keep their site strong and fast during election coverage.
