No, I mean a Book Index https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_(publishing)

Substitutions only marginally cut it.
I know you can put code into reST or MD, but you cannot “include”
external source code as code environment let alone including only 
several lines.

When you want to edit just copy the section you want to edit from the git and paste it into notex.ch and when done, paste it back into the git as a pull request.  You can use docker to create a local copy so you aren't editing on their servers and I suspect you could configure your local copy to use the git as the source to enable collaboration but everyone would have to do this themselves which isn't scalable.

Then I can create accounts for anyone who wants to edit - which is linked to the same git - which solves the group editing problem.  This may be a bad idea - I don't know enough to know.
