I'm anticipating replacing/migrating project description documents to 
the project overview document, as per the 

So I suggest not spending too much time addressing this yet.

Overviews which will contain images)

Good observations, and something I'd like to understand soon, but don't 
have an answer yet.

I suspect that the lock file is a consequence of me updating the server 
when on the bus and loosing a connection or similar.

Feel free to remove the lock or directory and trigger a refresh.

I haven't set up an auto update, and I suggest we don't set one up.
We will often want to hold updates to the website till we have fixed all 
package updates or similar. Then we'd manually update the website.

I expect we will update the website separately to the main build 
process. Primarily we will change the website on the same day we release 
a LiveDVD, but we will not be updating during the build process.
