Yes, very easy -- but marginally expensive as you get the content (ie drat
code history) mirrored.  If you're at ease with git you can do it all by hand
too.  We still use the gh-pages branch for the webserver though (but now
support a contributed option to override that default target branch).

The other good thing that there are a number of public drat repos so you can
always poke around.
