We have a solution to this problem (we no longer need the 7 MiB
index.html \o/), but now I can neither update nor remove index.html: CVS
fails out with “cannot allocate memory” on the server side.

Could you nuke it somehow?  (History doesn’t matter.)

Also, it might be related, but updates to one the Guix web site CSS
files fail to lead to an update on the web site.  That is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ cvs ci -m Update. static/base/css
cvs commit: Examining static/base/css
/web/guix/guix/static/base/css/packages.css,v  <--  static/base/css/packages.css
new revision: 1.5; previous revision: 1.4
Triggering webpages update...
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This works fine, but several hours later:

  wget -q -O - 

… is still showing me the old version of the file.
