Also, thinking about in-progress presentations. I'm inferring you

Sure. Indeed, this will be nicer...

Hang on, why don't we just generate PDFs, push them directly to

PDFs are compressed after all so would hardly bloat the (already
large) repository, there is no need for any automatic jobs that have
filename assumptions or syncing work of any kind.
