We'll have to wait for Loic for a definitive answer, but I have at
least some information.

Your changes made in gnudist:~www will definitely not be lost.  That
directory is now a cvs working directory, checked out from the
repository and periodically updated with "cvs update".  I'm not sure
if changes there are automatically committed periodically, but it's
probably a good idea for you to commit it yourself anyway.  That way
you can give it a suitable log message, and it also eliminates the
possibility of merge conflicts turning up on the http-available copy.

Loic has sent out several messages about this, and I believe the
current status is that it is okay to modify gnudist:~www, although
that method will be deprecated at some point.  The reason I
recommended that Paul start using CVS is because he'll need to learn
that eventually anyway, and it solves his immediate problem of emacs
treating software/software.html as read-only.
