One thing you could have done is update all the files before clicking
"commit". CMS is basically a web interface for a local SVN checkout.
You can update many files in this local SVN checkout, examining each
preview render, before ultimately clicking "Commit" which initiates a
final rendering to the staging site. You definitely don't have to
commit one file at a time.
