Migrate from Netlify to Github Pages #579
I recently got a mail from Netlify that I used 65% of the free 100GB bandwidth in the last month. I don't quite understand why we needed so much bandwidth and Netlify provides no finer-grained bandwidth statistics (e.g. traffic per site), so we have to trust what they say.
