Add Google Tag Manager to status.wordpress.org

The site at status.wordpress.org omits our standard Google Tag Manager integration. This should be added.

The status site is hosted outside of WordPress.org, and does not have the standard customisation options.

It's hosted on WordPress.com, where I believe we might be able to add a Google analytics code: https://wordpress.com/support/google-analytics/

Will that suffice? GTM is basically out of the question.

Hmm. If we add 'raw' GA, that bypasses a lot of our data cleansing and privacy gubbins.
Can we install plugins (e.g., Google's Site Kit plugin)?

Not on this site, it's intentionally minimal due to it's limited use and use only as a status page in the event WordPress.org is unavailable.

Adding GA isn't going to be of significant benefit here IMHO, as we won't be changing any of the default WordPress.comisms of it anyway.

We need GA on it if it's on the dot org domain - otherwise, any traffic moving to/through it and on to other .org properties is borking our dataset.
