Doesn't Overleaf use the relative up to date TL? It is possible to run
tex4ht here. See my comment on the following page:


Another possibility is Travis CI, which has been successfully used for
tex4ht testing in the past.

The dedicated server would be nice, but it would be quite hard to keep
it safe, I think that not long ago someone demonstrated computer
compromising using LaTeX file even without -shell-escape option used.
But if someone is willing to create a such tool, I would be happy :)

Sure, not speaking of development version of my packages scattered
around the local TEXMF tree.

That sounds reasonable.
