It's gone.  (I moved it out of the way.)

I will lazily say that I believe that to be the same problem but this

That large index.html,v file is gone now.  I triggered an update.  Did
it update?  I forgot to look before I triggered it and I don't know
what to look for afterward to tell if it worked or not.

Please check it again now.  If it was the large ,v file then the
problem should be resolved now.  If it isn't then it is something else
