I think you can probably use github pages for this. Github already
allows release assets, and there are definitely people putting release
assets in github pages, so I don't think this is against the terms of
service, and github pages lets you provide a simple html index and file
structure however you like.
Just make sure to rebuild and force overwrite the gh-pages branch rather
than appending new commits, to make sure the size doesn't get too big
due to bloaty binary blobs in git history.
