Sorry, I don't have any scripts to contribute. It seems like it doable
with just a cron job running a git bundle create command and having it
put it on a file server. I'm sure there would be more involved then
that though.

The board_status.sh script does a full clone and I didn't want to mess
with it and have it end up trying to upload an invalid commit. Maybe
it would have worked with an empty initilized local repo?

There is actually a fixme note in board_status.sh about it (line 419):

		# FIXME: the board-status directory might get big over time.
		# Is there a way we can push the results without fetching the
		# whole repo?
