Yes a new repo is required. Github will render html checked into a
repo called https://github.com/numpy/numpy.github.com at
http://numpy.github.com. Since the html is built from reST sources
using Sphinx, we'd need a repo for the website source
(https://github.com/numpy/numpy.github.com) and a repo to check the
built html into (https://github.com/numpy/numpy.github.com). To update
the website will require push permissions to both repos.

The IPython team have scripts to automate the update, build and commit
process for their website, which we could borrow from.
