In Savannah, you have access to the web page sources (go to the Source
Code menu at the top and then "Use CVS", instructions are there for
checking out the web page sources; committing changes automatically
generates the new pages).  The manual is generated from the gendocs.sh
script in gnulib.  So it's a matter of running that script, directing
the output to the webpage repository check-out and committing those

Anyway, I can do it tonight when I get home from work.
