The mailing-list.xml version is in the avalon-site CVS module and is
linked to from those pages via the navigation.xml sidebar.  All the
other mailing list pages you see are those auto-generated by Maven (ie-
the info is incorrect in the project specific project.xml pages).

Note to self: Need to add this to the wiki somewhere.

Leo has a cron job that runs every couple of hours which checks out
(does a cvs update actually) everything in the avalon-site/site module. 
This is what you see on the website.  So in order to do an update you

   1. Change the XML or HTML source
   2. Generate the html site (via maven usually)
   3. Replace the old HTML files in avalon-site/site with the newly
generated ones via import or copy
   4. Commit both changes to the source and the newly generated pages to
CVS (only commit what you need.  No need to regenerate the whole site if
it's not necessary)
   5.  Wait a couple hours to see what you messed up. :)
