=> For that, I want to strongly suggest to use the Github wiki/README.md as
the technical docs. This way, every project within the OCA will have:
a) A functionnal/business description on the new OCA website
b) A technical description on github for each repository.
Here is my suggestion : https://github.com/OCA/maintainers-tools

=> Commit the tools here: https://github.com/OCA/maintainers-tools
=> For running the cron, tow options:
a) OCA buy something on one of those services :
b) Somebody within the OCA offer a server and access to Community
Maintainers team to setup them
