The sample server's staging environment should be getting used to test works-in-progress. To do this, I want to change the startup scripts to use a stage version of the github repo (currently this would be my samples-server tree but could be anywhere) in order to allow testing without impacting the production site. Easy fix once the best method for determining which server is in use is decided on. This could be as simple as looking for the prod server's IP address (although that feels like a hack, it'd work).
This is MDN platform maintenance, not docs. Moving to the right product/component.
