I have set up a CloudFlare front for another organization's GitHub
pages, and did not find it difficult at all with all the instructions
available online. I suspect that the hardest thing will be the
management of credentials. Whoever does this will need access to the
domain registrar to change the DNS records, and to our CloudFlare
account (we'll need to set one up). *Then* these credentials need to be
stored so that if there is some problem later and the person who does
this now is not around to help, someone else can help. Also, when pages
are changed on the site, it's useful to be able to invalidate CloudFlare

I'm willing to help, but I don't know where to store the passwords or
who to talk to about the domain registrar. Do we have something in place
for the credentials of existing accounts, such as the GitHub matplotlib
account, our Twitter handle, etc?
