If you want a larger VM email me specs and I will set one up for 

I guess the doc generation doesn't need much changing on dub.  
Maybe an extra command line option to build and publish docs that 
calls a field specified in dub.sdl like postgenerate command 
because you don't want to build docs every time and creating 
separate build configurations means you now have double the 
number, with and without docs.  And custom command allows you to 
use a different doc generator.  But we could have a default 
command to generate those for dub the repository.

And then the template for the web site would just need to have a 
link to appropriate directory added?

We have contributed to dub in past - John Colvin worked on this.  
One problem was lack of bandwidth to review pull requests.  If we 
get better review and still don't have contributions then one can 
address that directly, but for now review seems the bottleneck.
