Is commit to CVS okay?

Forrestbot run every night? Or triggered when you've made a change? 
Surely that'd be simple enough? And with timestamp testing (either in 
CocoonBean or Ant), you can only upload changed files.

Similarly, presumably we could set up two sites: one for news (single 
page: news.html) and one for everything else. That way, if news is what 
changes most frequently, it can be done in a few seconds.

Surely this'd be a piece of cake for someone who understands configuring 
ForrestBot, and wouldn't require any code changes at all.
