UPDATING THE EMACS WEB PAGES AFTER A RELEASE
As soon as possible after a release, the Emacs web pages should be updated.
Anyone with write access to the Emacs code repository can do this.
For instructions, see <https://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=emacs>.
Changes go live more or less as soon as they are committed.
(See admin/notes/www for general information.)

NOTES FOR EMACS WWW PAGES
* Access
Anyone with write access to the Emacs code repository has the same
access to the web pages. See <https://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=emacs>
for instructions. After you commit a change to the CVS repository,
it normally appears automatically on www.gnu.org within a few minutes.
The basic procedure is:
Initial checkout:
cvs -z3 -d:ext:<membername>@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/web/emacs co emacs
Update from repository:
cvs up -dP
You can use Emacs's VC mode to commit files without having to worry
about knowing CVS syntax. You may find M-x cvs-examine a useful,
more specialized, alternative to M-x vc-dir.
* Manual pages
The scripts admin/make-manuals, admin/upload-manuals can be used to do
a complete update of the on-line manual pages (eg after a release).
* Renaming pages, redirects
Sometimes you want to move a page to a new location.

single redirect for every given external manual, you can redirect
html_node to hmtl_node and html_mono to html_mono.
* Why CVS?
Savannah supports other VCS, and no-one is especially attached to CVS.
Rather, CVS is the only supported mechanism for getting the changes
onto www.gnu.org. See eg
https://lists.gnu.org/r/bug-gnulib/2012-12/msg00072.html
* CVS alternatives
To use something other than CVS, convert the web-pages CVS repository
to the other VCS, then set up a two-way sync between them.
It needs to be two-way in case eg GNU webmasters make a change to the CVS.
